Keywords:S12ZV? microcontrollers? RTC? automotive instrument cluster? MagniV?

The S12ZVH family of microcontrollers comes with embedded Real Time Counter (RTC) module. This family of MCUs is aimed towards the automotive instrument cluster segment and is part of the MagniV set of products. The idea behind the MagniV portfolio is to create products that have the most possible integration on-chip and the RTC is one of the modules that is integrated with the MCU.

The main purpose of RTC is to keep accurate timing in easy-to-understand calendar units. This means the time is kept in seconds, minutes, and hours, instead of milliseconds or timer counts. The RTC will provide means of displaying the current time without too much software overhead driving the clock.
