Freescale Kinetis L Series MCUs

Freescale Kinetis L Series MCUs

Freescale's Kinetis L MCUs combine the exceptional energy-efficiency and ease-of-use of the new ARM Cortex-M0+ processor with the performance, peripheral sets, enablement and scalability of the Kinetis 32-bit MCU portfolio. The Kinetis L series frees power-critical designs from 8- and 16-bit MCU limitations by combining excellent dynamic and stop currents with superior processing performance, a broad selection of on-chip flash memory densities and extensive analog, connectivity and HMI peripheral options. Kinetis L series MCUs are also hardware and software compatible with the ARM Cortex-M4-based Kinetis K series, providing a scalable migration path to more performance, memory and feature integration.

KL0x Baseline MCUs

Freescale's Kinetis KL0x family is the entry point into the Kinetis L Series MCUs based on the ARM Cortex-M0+ processor. Pin compatible with our 8-bit S08P family, the Kinetis KL0x family provides a bridge for 8-bit customers migrating into the Kinetis portfolio and is software and tool compatible with all other Kinetis L families. Devices start from 8 KB of flash in a small-footprint 4 x 4 mm 24 QFN package extending up to 32 KB in a 48 LQFP package. Each combines ultra-low-power performance with a rich suite of analog, communication, timing and control peripherals.
