Microchip Technology Debuts Powerful 28-PIN PICmicro FLASH Microcontroller with Analog-to-Digital Converter

6/5/2002 - Committed to supporting a comprehensive portfolio of field-programmable PICmicro® microcontrollers, Microchip Technology Inc. today introduced its PIC16F72 Flash microcontroller. To accommodate today’s ever shortening and ever changing product life cycles, the PIC16F72 is code and pin-out compatible with the Company’s PIC16CR72 ROM- and PIC16C72A OTP-based microcontrollers. The PIC16F72 offers users a proven migration path to address applications that now require reprogrammable Flash memory to meet market requirements, thus allowing existing boards and software to be used and design cycles shortened. The PIC16F72 Flash device is available in 28-lead PDIP, SOIC, SSOP packages as well as the new 28-lead Quad Flat No Leads (QFN) Chip Scale Package (CSP), which saves board space. Highly flexible and cost effective, the PIC16F72 Flash microcontroller is ideal for small memory applications requiring analog functionality with serial communication and digital I/O requirements. Targeted applications include automotive body controls, automotive cabin controls, electric tools, battery chargers, and consumer appliances.
