Microchip Technology PIC16F193X 8-bit PIC Microcontroller Family

Microchip Technology unveiled six members of the PIC16F193X family of microcontrollers (MCUs) with enhanced Mid-range 8-bit core: PIC16F1934, PIC16LF1934, PIC16F1936, PIC16LF1936, PIC16F1937 and PIC16LF1937. The PIC16F193X family offers enhanced support for both C and Assembly programmers. The LF family members feature Microchip’s nanoWatt XLP technology that deliver extreme low power consumption. The new family offers Direct LCD drive and support for mTouch capacitive touch-sensing solutions. The microcontrollers are ideal for applications in the appliance, consumer, industrial, medical and automotive markets.

PIC16F193X Features

  • Flash program memory up to 14 KB
  • Data RAM up to 512 Bytes
  • 256 Bytes Data EEPROM
  • LCD drive (up to 96 segments)
  • nanoWatt XLP technology on the “LF” versions, resulting in sleep currents of 90 nA, Watchdog Timer (WDT) current of 500 nA, and low-power 32 kHz Timer1 oscillator current of 600 nA, all at 1.8V
  • mTouch Sensing Solutions peripheral for capacitive touch sensing (16 channels, with support for up to 64 buttons)
  • 32 MHz internal oscillator
  • Up to 5 Enhanced Capture Compare PWM peripherals with independent time base
  • Reduced Interrupt latency
  • 16-level hardware stack, with overflow/underflow interrupt
  • Low-power 1.8 to 5.5V operation, including full analog peripheral operation
  • Master SPI/I2C and EUSART support for RS-232/RS-485, as well as LIN support
  • Up to 14 channels of 10-bit Analog-to-Digital Conversion (ADC)
  • Two rail-to-rail input comparators with 555 Timer operation
  • 4×8-bit and 1×16-bit timers, with extreme low power Real-Time Clock (RTC) support
  • Robust and reliable operational monitors, such as Power-On Reset (POR), Brown-out Reset (BOR) and low-power Watchdog Timer (WDT)

With a total of 49 instructions, the PIC16F193X microcontrollers optimize program code and data handling, while increasing efficiency and reducing clock cycles. Future devices with the enhanced Mid-range 8-bit core, offering increased memory and additional I/O, are expected to be released later this year.
