Microchip PIC16F570, PIC16F527 Microcontrollers Feature Dual Op Amps

Microchip PIC16F527 and PIC16F570 8-bit PIC microcontrollers

Microchip Technology introduced the PIC16F527 and PIC16F570 8-bit PIC microcontrollers. The devices combine the ease-of-use of a PIC MCU with low-cost analog peripherals. The new 8-bit PIC MCUs feature an on-chip dual Op Amp module, 8-bit ADC and two comparators. The Microchip PIC16F527 and PIC16F570 microcontrollers are ideal for systems that require signal conditioning and amplification to interpret analog inputs.

The Microchip PIC16F527 and PIC16F570 feature a small and highly efficient 8-bit architecture. The two MCU devices also feature self-read/write program Flash memory, which allows for high-use data EEPROM functionality.

The all-new hardware interrupt capability gives engineers the freedom to implement more complex functions without adding software overhead, while an integrated Brown-Out Reset (BOR) can detect faults in system power and safely reset the MCU to avoid memory corruption.

The PIC16F527 MCU is offered in 20-pin PDIP, SOIC, SSOP and QFN packages. It is available now for sampling and volume production. Prices start at $0.47 each in 10,000-unit quantities. The PIC16F570 is offered in 28-pin PDIP, SOIC, SSOP and QFN packages. It will available in June for sampling and volume production. Prices start at $0.57 each in 10,000-unit quantities.
