32-bit Power Architecture MCU for Automotive Body and Gateway Applications

This family of 32-bit system-on-chip (SoC) microcontrollers is the latest achievement in integrated automotive application controllers. It belongs to an expanding family of automotive-focused products designed to address the next wave of body electronics applications within the vehicle.

The advanced and cost-efficient e200z0h host processor core of this automotive controller family complies with the Power Architecture technology and only implements the VLE (variable-length encoding) APU (Auxiliary Processor Unit), providing improved code density. It operates at speeds of up to 64 MHz and offers high performance processing optimized for low power consumption. It capitalizes on the available development infrastructure of current Power Architecture devices and is supported with software drivers, operating systems and configuration code to assist with users implementations.
