CardS12

HCS12 / S12X Controller Module with MC9S12D64 / MC9S12DP512 / MC9S12XDP512

HCS12 the easy way!

CardS12 is a versatile credit card-sized controller module equipped with a MC9S12D64. The module is a perfect platform for the development of new applications (rapid prototyping). Due to it's competitive price, it is also suitable for the small series production of devices.

The microcontroller MC9S12D64 is one of the state-of-the-art members of Freescale's HCS12 family. This MCU uses 16-bit data paths throughout and, at the same time, maintains compatibility to the HC11 and HC12 families from Freescale (formerly: Motorola). With a bus clock of up to 25 MHz and a considerable number of integrated peripheral functions, the HCS12 outperforms the former 8-bit MCUs significantly.

Interfaces

The conception of the new board is very similar to our Card12 module. It is equipped with two independent RS232 ports and a BDM interface for in-system programming and debugging. The integrated CAN module of the MC9S12D64 is complemented on-board by a high-speed CAN bus driver. In addition, the MCU contains a whole set of interface functions, such as SPI and I2C.

TwinPEEKs Monitor Program

For this HCS12 controller module, TwinPEEKs is available as a special monitor software. It allows download to and programming of Flash Memory and EEPROM without any additional hardware tools!

The monitor code resides in a write-protected Flash boot block (only 4KB). It can not be erased unintentionally.

TwinPEEKs is installed on every CardS12 at the time of delivery (*). The assembly language source code of the monitor is available on request.

CardS12.DP512

This module version is equipped with a Freescale MC9S12DP512 controller. Compared to the CardS12.D64, it has the following advantages:

  • Five independent CAN Interfaces
  • Three SPI modules
  • 512 KB Flash Memory
  • 4 KB EEPROM
  • 14 KB RAM

New: CardS12.XDP5

Our latest CardS12 controller module is equipped with an MC9S12XDP512, which belongs to Freescale's S12X high-end 16-bit family. Compared to the HCS12 version, the CardS12.XDP5 provides:

  • Up to 40 MHz bus clock
  • 32 KB RAM
  • Extended S12X instruction set
  • XGATE peripheral coprocessor
