|Freescale delivers cost-effective, small footprint 8-bit microcontroller optimized for automotive body electronics applications|
AUSTIN, Texas – July 20, 2010 – Freescale Semiconductor announced today the S08SC4, the newest addition to its embedded 8-bit microcontroller (MCU) portfolio for the automotive industry. Offering 4k FLASH memory in conjunction with a highly integrated peripheral feature set in a small footprint package, the S08SC4 is ideally suited for cost sensitive and space constrained applications such as pushbutton control, simple lighting, mirror dimming and basic motor control.
Some of the key features include an embedded serial communications interface supporting entry level Local Interconnect Networking communication and an internal clock source eliminating the need for an external crystal, thus reducing overall system cost. In addition, the S08SC4 is pin and software compatible with the S08SG family; providing users with an easy migration path to larger memory size products should requirements change.
Comprehensive development support
The S08SC4 MCU is included in Freescale’s product longevity program, with assured supply for a minimum of 15 years. See www.freescale.com/productlongevity for details.
