Non-Volatile Flash Data Memory 8 MHz Internal Oscillator Integrated Memory and Analog Functionality
Microchip Technology, Inc. announces two baseline 8-bit Flash PIC microcontrollers with non-volatile Flash Data Memory (FDM) in 8- and 14-pin packages. With the availability of 64 bytes of data memory, combined with an 8 MHz internal oscillator, a device reset timer (DRT), up to three channels of 8-bit analog-to-digital conversion (ADC), and up to two comparators, there is a diverse feature set to select from when integrating digital intelligence in low-cost applications. The PIC12F519 (8-pin) and PIC16F526 (14-pin) microcontrollers provide an option for storing configuration and calibration data, counters or small look-up tables without external non-volatile memory. Their integrated memory and analog functionality makes them suitable for applications such as battery-operated products, power supplies and identification tags.
