Microchip Technology (Chandler, AZ) has announced a new family of microcontrollers (MCUs) —the PIC24FJ128GC010. This family is an analog system on a chip that integrates a full analog signal chain, including Microchip’s first ever on-chip precision 16-bit ADC and 10 Msps 12-bit ADC, plus a DAC and dual operational amplifiers, along with eXtreme Low Power technology for extended battery life in portable medical and industrial applications. Features include:
- A combination of analog integration and low power consumption, which reduces system cost and noise, and improves the signal throughput in applications such as portable medical monitoring devices, as well as industrial applications.
- An integrated LCD display driver that provides the ability to drive up to 472 segments with information-rich user displays.
- An integrated USB that supports the uploading of clinical data for medical equipment, and can act as a service/data port for industrial equipment.
- Capacitive touch sensing, which is supported with an on-chip mTouch peripheral.
