The S12 MagniV 16-bit S12ZVM family of mixed-signal microcontrollers (MCUs) from Freescale Semiconductor are a highly integrated automotive brushless direct current (BLDC) motor control solution and will help accelerate the transition from direct current to BLDC motors. The S12ZVM family combines four elements of a system—MCU, MOSFET gate drive unit, voltage regulator, and local interconnect network physical layer—into a single-chip solution. Using Freescale’s S12ZVM single-chip motor control solution allows designers to shrink the size, reduce the audible noise, and improve the power efficiency of their applications. The S12ZVM family offers a wide range of product versions, supporting CAN and LIN communication protocols with multiple memory sizes and package options.
