Mixed-signal MCUs on 90nm process
The ColdFire+ Qx and Jx families bring FlexMemory to the ColdFire portfolio; configurable embedded electrically erasable programmable read-only memory (EEPROM), as well as highly-accurate mixed-signal capability, low-power features and additional application-specific peripherals for consumer devices.
Other capabilities include encryption and security, USB audio, capacitive touch interfaces and display technology. The touch sensing module, which, when combined with Freescale’s recently introduced Xtrinsic Touch-Sensing Software, is expected to simplify touch key configuration by allowing multiple electrode array combinations and provide designers a full-scale, highly accurate and robust touch sensing solution.
The enablement bundle features Freescale’s complimentary MQX real time operating system (RTOS) with USB audio, mass storage, human interface device and class stacks that help simplify hardware management and streamline software development. Also included is CodeWarrior Development Studio with MQX RTOS kernel awareness for advanced debug support that is based on the Eclipse open development platform.
