Freescale's Kinetis V Series MCUs are based upon the ARM® Cortex®-M0+ and M4 cores and are designed for BLDC, PMSM and ACIM motor control, as well as digital power conversion applications. The Kinetis KV1x family is the entry point and features a 75MHz ARM Cortex-M0+ core with a hardware square root and divide block giving it a 27% increase in performance vs. comparable 32-bit MCUs in sensorless PMSM control. With an ARM Cortex-M4 core, floating point unit and clock frequencies of up to 150MHz, the Kinetis KV3x and Kinetis KV4x families extend the V series to higher dynamic control systems including those with multiple motors. Kinetis V Series features include dual 16-bit analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) sampling at up to 1.2 mega samples per second (MS/s) in 12-bit mode, multiple motor control timers and 16-512 KB of flash memory. The Kinetis KV4x family includes advanced analog and timing peripherals from Freescale's digital signal controller (DSC) portfolio to address the requirements of digital power conversion applications.
