Anis Jarrar, Freescale design engineer, explains how his team developed Kinetis and how the result of their "chasing nanowatts" concept resulted in a highly scalable, ultra low power MCU.
32-bit Kinetis MCUs represent the most scalable portfolio of ARM® Cortex™-M4 MCUs in the industry. The first phase of the portfolio consists of five MCU families with over 200 pin-, peripheral- and software compatible devices with outstanding performance, memory and feature scalability. Enabled by innovative 90nM Thin Film Storage (TFS) flash technologu with unique FlexMemory (configurable embedded EEPROM), Kinetis features the latest low-power innovations and high performance, high precision mixed-signal capability. Kinetis MCUs are supported by a market-leading enablement bundle from Freescale and ARM 3rd party ecosystem partners.
