Motorola Inc. has announced the availability of a pair of 8-bit Flash microcontrollers (MCUs) that are designed to hasten the development of local interconnect network (LIN) systems in automobiles.

The 68HC908EY16 features an on-chip variable frequency oscillator and an Enhanced Serial Communications Interface (ESCI) module, while the 68HC908GZ16 incorporates on-chip CAN protocol (v2.0A/B). Both are based on the company's 68HC08EY core and are qualified to full automotive industry standards.

The 68HC908EY16 is a dedicated LIN slave MCU that also features up to 16KB of ROM or Flash memory with 10,000 R/W cycles, up to 256 bytes of RAM, up to 8-channels of 10-bit ADC, two 16-bit dual channel timers, and a serial peripheral interface, crammed inside a 32-pin QFP casing.

On the other hand, the 68HC908GZ16 is a dedicated LIN master MCU also available in a 32-pin QFP. It features up to60KB of ROM or on-chip Flash, ESCI and SPI, and up to 12-channels of 10-bit ADC.

Samples of the 68HC908EY16 and 68HC908GZ16 are available now and have a list price of $4.70 and $3.50 each, respectively, in 10,000-piece quantities.
