The NXP/Freescale 9S12XEP microcontroller is an enhancement of the 9S12XD, with a CPU12X core operating at up to 50 MHz, an XGATE RISC co-processor operating at up to 100 Mhz, larger on-chip memory resources (up to 1MB Flash and 64K RAM), enhanced memory access and error-correcting capabilities, additional addressing modes, and faster and higher-resolution analog-to-digital converter subsystems (12-bit resolution and 3us conversion time). Adapt9S12XEP is the latest member of the "Adapt" Modular Prototyping System (AMPS) pioneered by Technological Arts. The flexible design of this system supports all aspects of evaluation, training, product development, proof-of-concept prototyping, and even volume production.

MCU Features:

The MC9S12XEP100 used on this module combines a full suite of on-chip resources, including 1M bytes of Flash, 64K bytes of RAM, 4K bytes of EEPROM, six asynchronous serial communication interfaces (SCIs), three serial peripheral interfaces (SPIs), an 8-channel Input Capture/Output Compare enhanced capture timer, an 8-channel, 12-bit analog-to-digital converter, a 16-channel, 12-bit analog-to-digital converter, an 8-channel pulse-width modulator (PWM), five CAN 2.0A, B software compatible modules (MSCAN12), two I2C bus blocks, and a Periodic Interrupt Timer. The MC9S12XEP100 has full 16-bit data paths throughout. Note, however, that address/data bus signals are not pinned out in the 112-pin version of the chip which is used on Adapt9S12XEP.

Before you order...
This is an advanced product, for experienced users. We recommend using a compatible BDM pod (such as our USBDMLT) to assist you with product development. The Special Edition of CodeWarrior for S12(X) is a good starting point for C or assembler programmers.

All of our standard connector options are available for this board. The product photo above shows "RA1" connector style populated on both H1 and H2. Please make your choice of connector styles before adding this item to your shopping cart. Otherwise, the board will be shipped with the default option (i.e. no connectors on H1 and H2).
