An enhancement of the popular HCS12 family (and fully backward-compatible CPU), the S12X family utilizes the latest process technology. It boasts higher speed (40 MHz), more functionality, reduced power consumption and cost, and enhanced performance with the new XGATE on-chip memory-management and DMA module. Adapt9S12X products use a modular implementation that brings these advantages within easy reach of engineers and educators. The flexible design of the "Adapt" series of microcontroller products addresses the entire spectrum of training, evaluation, development, prototyping, and OEM needs.
Implemented in an "AdaptS12" form factor board, Adapt9S12X modules are compatible with an entire range of application cards, prototyping cards, and backplanes, and usable with solderless breadboards ("proto boards"). The module design includes all necessary support circuitry for the MCU, as well as a 5-Volt regulator, RS232, RS485, and on-board CAN transceivers (where applicable). Modules are available for 9S12XD, 9S12XE, and 9S12XS microcontrollers.
