Microchip unveils MCUs with mid-range 8-bit core
The new family extends Microchip's PIC MCU portfolio of over 550 compatible members, targeting a wide variety of applications in the appliance, consumer, industrial, medical and automotive markets. The family's increased memory and core capabilities deliver enhanced support for both C and Assembly programmers. The new range features Microchip's nanoWatt XLP Technology - for low power consumption - enabling designs to achieve better battery lifetime. Continuing in the PIC MCU tradition of integrating extensive peripherals, the new family offers Direct LCD drive and support for mTouch capacitive touch-sensing solutions.
"We are pleased to announce the first family of microcontrollers based upon our enhanced Mid-range 8-bit core," said Steve Drehobl, Vice President of Microchip's Security, Microcontroller and Technology Development Division. "Building upon the worldwide customer acceptance of Microchip's existing Mid-range 8-bit products, the new devices enable new levels of functionality at lower system cost," added Drehobl.
