Mask Set ErrataRev. October 25, 2012

MC9S12VR64, Mask 2N05E

This errata sheet applies to the following devices:

MC9S12VR64, MCS12VR48

MCU Device Mask Set Identification

The mask set is identified by a 5-character code consisting of a version number, a letter, two numerical digits, and a letter, for example 1K79X. All standard devices are marked with a mask set number and a date code.

MCU Device Date Codes

Device markings indicate the week of manufacture and the mask set used. The date is coded as four numerical digits where the first two digits indicate the year and the last two digits indicate the work week. For instance, the date code "0201" indicates the first week of the year 2002.

MCU Device Part Number Prefixes

Some MCU samples and devices are marked with an SC, PC, or XC prefix. An SC prefix denotes special/custom device. A PC prefix indicates a prototype device which has undergone basic testing only. An XC prefix denotes that the device is tested but is not fully characterized or qualified over the full range of normal manufacturing process variations. After full characterization and qualification, devices will be marked with the MC or SC prefix.

Errata System Tracking Numbers

MUCtsXXXXX is the tracking number for device errata. It can be used with the mask set and date code to identify a specific erratum.

MUCts04243 sci SCI: RXEDGIF occurs more times than expected in IR mode YES

SCI: RXEDGIF occurs more times than expected in IR modeMUCts04243


Configured for Infrared Receive mode, the SCI may incorrectly set the 

RXEDGIF bit if there are consecutive '00' data bits. There are two

Case 1: due to re-sync of the RXD input, the received edge may be
delayed by one bus cycle. If an edge (bit = '0') is detected near
an SCI clock edge, the next edge (bit = '0') may be detected one
SCI clock later than expected due to re-sync logic.

Case 2: if external baud is slower than SCI receiver, the next edge
may be detected later than expected.

This glitch can be detected by the RXEDGIF circuit, but it does not
impact the final data result because the SCI receive and data recovery
logic takes samples at RT8, RT9, and RT10.


Case 1 and case 2 may occurs at same time. To avoid those unexpected 

RXEDGIF at IR mode, the external baud should be kept a little bit
faster than receiver baud by:
P > (1/16)/(SBR)
(P)(SBR)(16)> 1

Where SBR is baud of receiver, P is external baud faster ratio.
For example:
1.- When SBR = 16, P = 0.4%, this means the external baud should be at
least 0.4% faster than receiver.
2.- When SBR = 4, P = 1.6%, this means the external baud should be at
least 1.6% faster than receiver.

Case 1 will cover case 2, i.e. case 1 is the worst case. If case1 is
solved, case 2 is also solved.
