Microchip Expands 8-bit PIC Microcontroller Family with Intelligent Analog Integration
Microchip Technology  (Chandler, AZ) has announced an expansion of its 8-bit PIC16F178X enhanced Mid-Range core microcontroller (MCU) family with increased Flash memory densities, intelligent analog and digital peripherals, such as on-chip 12-bit Analog-to-Digital Converters (ADCs), 16-bit PWMs, 8-bit and 5-bit Digital-to-Analog Converters (DACs), operational amplifiers, and high-speed comparators with 50 ns response time, along with EUSART (including LIN), I2C and SPI interface peripherals. Features include:
- Programmable switch mode controller (advanced 16-bit pulse-width modulator).
- 64 MHz operation and high-performance capabilities.
- eXtreme Low Power (XLP) Technology for active and sleep currents of 32 µA/MHz and 50 nA.
- Low power consumption in combination with advanced analog and digital integration.
