Zilog Z16FMC™ Series Flash Microcontrollers & Development Kit

Zilog Z16FMC™ Series Flash Microcontrollers, part of the Flash Motor Control family of devices, are powerful 16-bit CISC microcontrollers that outperform most RISC microcontrollers in their class. Zilog Z16FMC™ Series Flash Microcontrollers boast a unique architecture that provides the power, punch, and performance of a 32-bit micro with the code, current efficiency, and cost of a 16-bit. The Z16FMC features Zilog's ZNEO® CPU, which boasts a highly optimized instruction set that achieves higher performance per clock cycle with less code space and lower overhead than competing architectures. Optimized for motor control applications, these devices are designed for the control of multiphase AC and DC variable-speed motors. Target applications are large appliances, HVAC, and industrial.

Zilog Z16FMC™ Series Flash Microcontrollers


These Zilog Z16FMC™ Series Flash Microcontrollers have a powerful yet simple core with sixteen 32-bit general-purpose registers that supports complex CISC addressing modes and a single-cycle instruction set that includes frame pointer support, multi-bit shift, and multi-register push/pop as well as powerful 32-bit math operations.

The Z16FMC Series features a flexible multi-channel pulse width modulator (PWM) timer module with three complementary pairs or six independent PWM outputs supporting dead-band operation and fault protection trip input. These features provide multiphase control capability for a variety of motor types and ensure safe operation of the motor by providing Pulse-by-Pulse or latched fast shutdown of the PWM pins during fault condition.

The Z16FMC Series also features up to twelve single-ended channels of 10-bit analog-to-digital conversion with a sample and hold circuit plus one operational amplifier for current sampling and one comparator for over-current limiting or shutdown. A high-speed analog-to-digital converter (ADC) enables voltage, current, and back-EMF sensing, while dual-edge interrupts and a 16-bit timer provide a Hall-effect sensor interface.

Two full-duplex 9-bit UARTs provide serial asynchronous communication and support the local interconnect network (LIN) serial communications protocol. The LIN bus is a cost-efficient Single Master, Multiple Slave organization that supports speeds up to 20Kbps.

Zilog Z16FMC™ Series Development Kit


The Zilog Z16FMC™ Series Development Kit is intended to help users evaluate motor control designs and applications. The Z16FMC Series Motor Control Development Kit features a Motor Control Modular Development System (MC MDS) daughter board mounted on a 3-Phase Motor Control Application Board. The MC MDS board consists of a 64LQFP Z16FMC chip and a DBG connector to connect the kit to a host development PC via the USB Smart Cable. The 3-Phase Motor Control Application Board provides spade lug connectors for the 3-phase motor and fused spade lug connectors for an adjustable 24V DC, 3A workbench power source.

All hardware (except an external adjustable power supply) and software/documentation required to evaluate the Zilog® motor control solution is included within the Z16FMC Series Motor Control Development Kit. The sample code used in this development kit is based on the Zilog Application Note titled Sensorless BLDC Motor Control Using the ZNEO Z16FMC MCU (AN0311). The latest sample code for this document, AN0311-SC01, can be downloaded at www.zilog.com.
