Microchip Technology, Inc. announces its family of 8-bit Flash PIC microcontrollers (MCUs). The 28- and 40-pin PIC16F722/3/4/6/7 (PIC16F72X) MCUs are capable of operation down to 1.8 V, and they feature a 16 MHz internal oscillator, up to 14 analog-to-digital converter (ADC) channels, PWM (CCP) modules and the mTouch sensing solution peripheral. These integrated devices are suitable for a range of general purpose applications in the appliance, industrial and consumer electronic markets. The PIC16F72X MCUs have an operating voltage range of 1.8 to 5.5 V, with the low power PIC16LF72X devices offering low standby and other power-consumption specifications from 1.8 to 3.6 V. Both variations feature a Timer1 gate that runs from the internal 16 MHz oscillator, providing ease in conditional event counting and measurements.
