The Kinetis® KV1x MCU family is the entry point of the V series. Built upon the Arm® Cortex®-M0+ core running at 75 MHz with hardware square root and divide capability, it delivers a 27% increase in performance in math-intensive applications versus comparable MCUs, allowing it to target BLDC as well as more computationally demanding PMSM motors. Additional features include integrated FlexCAN, dual 16-bit analog-to-digital controllers (ADCs) sampling at up to 1.2 mega samples per second (MS/s) in 12-bit mode, multiple motor control timers, up to 128 KB of flash memory and a comprehensive enablement suite from NXP® and third-party resources, including reference designs, software libraries and motor configuration tools.
The KV1x family is enabled with Kinetis Motor Suite (KMS). KMS is a software solution that enables the rapid configuration of motor drive systems and accelerates development of the final motor drive application, whilst improving overall motor system performance. KMS simplifies motor control across variable speeds and loads of any type of 3-ph PMSM motor regardless of power level. For more information on Kinetis Motor Suite go to nxp.com/kms
