NanoCore12TM is an ideal low-cost platform that brings the advanced features of the 9S12C microcontroller family within easy reach of engineers, students, and hobbyists. The flexible design accommodates all aspects of training, evaluation, development, prototyping-- and even volume production. While there are several DIP-format MCU modules on the market, none of them comes close to the power and value of NanoCore12! Others are based on RISC processors-- some relying on serial program memory, and have limited or no hardware subsystems on-chip. NanoCore12 is the only complete family of DIP modules based on a high-speed CISC device. Since RISC processors only possess primitive instructions, their high speed is necessary, in order to produce acceptable computing power. With a CISC processor running at the same speed, the overall performance is vastly improved-- and performance improvement is in orders of magnitude for certain types of operations. The HCS12 instruction set includes powerful DSP-like instructions, 16-bit arithmetic, and the architecture implements memory-to-memory moves, and many powerful addressing modes. These features are way beyond what any PIC, AVR, or 8051 processor offers today.
