C2000™ real-time microcontrollers

Real-time MCUs enabling digital power and motor control in industrial and automotive applications

C2000™ microcontrollers are built for real-time control. We have more than 25 years of experience developing purpose-built automotive and industrial solutions and reference designs to meet your unique design needs. We provide low-latency real-time control for every performance level and price point across different applications. Choose from our extensive portfolio of devices ranging across low-, mid- and high-end options for processing, sensing and actuation. You can pair C2000 real-time MCUs with gallium nitride (GaN) ICs and silicon carbide (SiC) power devices to help you achieve their full capabilities. This pairing can help you overcome design challenges like high switching frequencies, high power density and more.
