Adapt9S12NE is a compact, modular implementation of Freescale's 9S12NE64 microcontroller chip. The 9S12 family is backward-compatible with 68HC12 (and 68HC11), and utilizes the latest process technology. By shrinking feature size, more functionality can be put on a chip, reducing power consumption and cost, while increasing operating speed. Adapt9S12NE is an ideal low-cost platform that brings these advantages within easy reach of engineers, students, and hobbyists. The flexible design of the entire Adapt12 series microcontroller products supports all aspects of training, evaluation, development, prototyping, and OEM use.
