Robust for harsh EMC environment

With 2.7-5.5 V supply and focus on exceptional EMC/ESD robustness, Kinetis E family is well suited to a wide range of applications in electrical harsh environments.

Robust TSI

TSI solution in Kinetis E series supports both self-cap and mutual-cap mode, flexibility for up to 25 touch sensing channels. Its auto tuning provides strong liquid tolerance for User Interface designs with a high level of stability and accuracy.

Rich Integration

KE1xZ64 has rich interfaces integrated

  • CAN bus
  • Flexible PWM and timers
  • 1Msps 12-bit ADC, 1Msps
  • ACMP

 KE1xZ64 product family is based on CM0+ core running at 48 MHz, offering multiple memory options: 64KB/8KB or 32KB/4KB Flash/SRAM with lower cost. It expands the KE1xZ series down to 64KB and 32KB flash options, 8KB and 4KB SRAM options, leading to optimized BOM cost.
