The Kinetis KL0 family is the entry point into the Kinetis L Series MCUs based on the ARM® Cortex™-M0+ processor. Pin compatible with our 8-bit S08P family, the Kinetis KL0 family provides a bridge for 8-bit customers migrating into the Kinetis portfolio and is software and tool compatible with all other Kinetis L families.
Devices start from 8 KB of flash in a small-footprint 4 x 4 mm 24 QFN package extending up to 32 KB in a 48 LQFP package. Each combines ultra-low-power performance with a rich suite of analog, communication, timing and control peripherals.
Kinetis L Series Features:
- ARM Cortex-M0+ – the world's most energy-efficient processor. More than 2x CoreMark/mA performance of closest 8/16-bit competitor and 30% less power than Cortex-M0.
- Low Power MCU Architecture - Low power 90nm TFS flash technology, clock and power gating, highly efficient platform featuring a bit manipulation engine, peripheral bridge crossbar and zero wait state flash memory controller.
- Energy-Saving Peripherals - Smart peripherals function in deep sleep modes and can make intelligent decisions and process data without waking up the core – ADMA, UART, Timers, ADC, Segment LCD, Touch Sensing.
- Ultra-Low Power Modes - Flexible RUN/WAIT/STOP modes with fast wake-up – optimize power use to suit application needs.
Key Applications: Communication, Connectivity, and Human-Machine Interface Peripherals.
