I'm working for an automotive supplier in Germany.
We're currently evaluating, which microcontroller to use for the next generation of motorized belt-pretensioning modules. When looking especially for cost-reduction potential to our current design, I stumbled upon the S12ZVM, that seems perfect for our application, except maybe for the sparse FLASH and EEPROM memory.
- Does anyone out there (at Freescale ;-) ) know the timeline for the qualification of this part?
When I'm not mistaken, the timeline (end of 2012!) indicated a series start in mid-2013 or so...
- When will samples be available?
We'd like to make an evaluation/sample design as soon as possible?
- Is there any chance for more than 128k Flash and 512b of EE in the (near) future?
Grateful for any information I could get!
