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.
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 PIC16(L)F1826 and PIC16(L)F1827 [PIC16(L)F1826/7] general-purpose 8-bit microcontrollers (MCUs) with Enhanced Mid-range core. The PIC16(L)F1826/7 devices are both available in 18-pin PDIP and SOIC packages; a 20-pin SSOP package; and 28-pin 6 mm x 6 mm QFN and 4 mm x 4 mm µQFN packages. The PIC16(L)F1826 are priced at $0.92 each in 10,000-unit quantities, and the PIC16(L)F1827 at $0.99 each in 10,000-unit quantities, for all package options.
Microchip Technology unveiled the PIC24FJ64GA104 and PIC24FJ64GB004 16-bit microcontroller (mcu) families. Both PIC24F families feature nanoWatt XLP extreme low power technology, small packages, and mTouch capacitive touch sensing. All family members are available now for sampling and volume production. Prices start at $2.12 each in 10,000 unit quantities for the PIC24FJ64GA104 general-purpose family members, and $2.32 each in 10,000 unit quantities for the PIC24FJ64GB004 USB family members.
