The S12ZVC is a highly reliable, low-cost 16-bit MCU that offers a built-in voltage regulator along with CAN bus, 12-bit ADC and a 4-channel PWM. This feature is a great asset when developing end-node automotive solutions, such as a switch panel, based on CAN bus integration. This application integrates many buttons and knobs to control automotive systems, for example, Lights, Doors, Audio Systems, Air Conditioner or windows at the driver or passengers reach.
