Microchip Technology introduced the PIC12F182X and PIC16F19XX 8-bit PIC microcontrollers (MCUs). The PIC1XF182X MCUs include dual I2C/SPI interfaces, multiple PWM channels with independent time bases, a Data Signal Modulator, and other peripherals. The PIC16F19XX MCUs provide up to 28 KB of Flash program memory. The on-chip LCD drive supports up to 184 segments and provides a low-power drive mode for increased efficiency. The MCUs also include up to 5 Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) channels with independent time bases for controlling various motor types and peripherals.
Microchip Technology introduced the PIC12F617 microcontroller. The PIC12F617 MCU features 3.5 kB of self-programmable Flash program memory, a 10-bit Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC), comparator, Pulse-Width Modulator (PWM), and VREF for closed-loop-control applications — all in a miniature 3 mm x 3 mm DFN package. The PIC12F617 microcontroller is available in 8-pin PDIP, SOIC, MSOP and 3 mm x 3 mm DFN packages, starting at $0.56 each, in 10,000-unit quantities.
