The Z32F0642 is a new Cortex-M0 32-bit MCU billed as ideal for motor control applications. Developed by
Zilog, a wholly-owned subsidiary of IXYS Corp., the MCU features 64KB of Flash memory, 4KB of SRAM, and operating frequencies up to 40 MHz. It offers a three-phase pulse width modulation (PWM) generator unit suitable for inverter motor drive systems. A built-in three-phase PWM generator can control one inverter motor. One 12-bit high-speed analog-to-digital converter (ADC) with 12-channel analog multiplexed inputs is included to gather feedback from the motor. There are multiple powerful external serial interfaces (one-channel SPI, one-channel I2C, and two-channel UARTs) to communicate with on-board sensors and devices.
The Z32F0642 can operate from a supply voltage ranging from 2.2 to 5.5 V. Other features include free-run timer, watchdog timer, on-chip RC-oscillator, power-on reset, GPIOs, hardware divider, and brownout detector. This new MCU is available in a 32-pin (10-channel ADC) or 48-pin (12-channel ADC) low-profile quad flat package (LQFP).
Applications include motor control (BLDC, servos, stepper and DC motors), robotics, household appliances (washing machines, dishwashers, and air conditioners), building automation, industrial controls, smart lighting, Internet of Things (IoT) devices, and sensor nodes.
Zilog’s Cortex-M0 Z32F0642 MCU is now available for customers through the distribution channels. More info: www.zilog.com.
