Microchip Technology introduced the PIC18F47J13 8-bit microcontroller (MCU). The PIC18F47J13 MCU features 128 KB Flash program memory, XLP technology for eXtreme Low Power consumption, and mTouch capability for implementing capacitive touch sensing user interfaces. Microchip PIC18F47J13 also includes an on-chip 12-bit Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC) advanced sensor, instrumentation and measurement applications. Package options for the PIC18F47J13 microcontroller include 28-pin QFN, SOIC, SPDIP and SSOP packages, as well as 44-pin QFN and TQFP packages. Pricing starts at $2.11 each, in 10,000-unit quantities. The PIC18F47J13 microcontroller is ideal for security systems, irrigation systems, remote controls, video-game controllers, wireless sensor networks and portable medical devices.
Microchip Technology introduced the PIC18F K90 8-bit microcontroller (MCU) family. The PIC18F87K90 MCUs are ideal for home-automation (thermostats, security systems, in-home displays), appliance (coffee makers, ranges, refrigerators), industrial (electronic door locks, metering, HVAC controls), medical (pulse oximeters, glucometers, digital thermometers, portable health-monitoring devices), and automotive (alarm systems, keyless entry, dashboard and center-stack displays) applications. The PIC18F K90 MCUs are available in 64- and 80-pin TQFP and 64-pin QFN packages, with prices starting at $2.42 each in 10,000 unit quantities. Samples and volume-production quantities are available now.
Microchip Technology launched the PIC18F K22 8-bit microcontrollers (MCUs). The PIC18F K22 MCUs feature operation from 1.8 to 5.5V, several communication channels, 8 to 128 KB Flash memory, peripherals for mTouch capacitive touch-sensing applications, a 12-bit Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC), multiple PWMs, and additional timers. All of the new MCUs feature nanoWatt XLP technology for eXtreme Low Power operation, with industry-leading sleep currents down to 20 nA.
