Mon, 05/04/2009 - 11:28am
Microchip Technology Inc. announces its next-generation low-power PIC® microcontroller (MCU) families with nanoWatt XLP eXtreme Low Power Technology for sleep currents as low as 20 nA. These three 8- and 16-bit MCU families join three other recent 8-bit families that are all part of Microchip’s nanoWatt XLP portfolio, providing designers with a rich and compatible low-power migration path that includes on-chip peripherals for USB and mTouch sensing solutions. This uniquecombination of low power consumption and functionality makes these PIC MCUs suited for any battery-powered or power-constrained application.
