Freescale Qorivva Microcontroller Families

Freescale Semiconductor introduced the Qorivva microcontroller (MCU) families for automotive applications. The new 55nm Qorivva MCU product families range from simple, low-cost, single-core controllers up to the latest triple- and quad-core variants. The 32-bit Freescale microcontrollers are based on Power Architecture technology. The MCU devices are built using a unique 55 nanometer (nm) non-volatile memory (NVM) process for improved power efficiency and cost effectiveness. The Qorivva MCU families will be available in early 2012.
