Microchip’s PIC32MZ 32-bit MCUs: Class-Leading Performance
Microchip Technology (Chandler, AZ) announced the new 24-member PIC32MZ Embedded Connectivity (EC) family of 32-bit MCUs. The PIC32MZ has class-leading code density that is 30% better than competitors, along with a 28 Msps ADC that offers one of the best throughput rates for 32-bit MCUs. Rounding out this family’s high level of integration is a full-featured hardware crypto engine with a random number generator for high-throughput data encryption/decryption and authentication (e.g., AES, 3DES, SHA, MD5 and HMAC), as well as the first SQI interface on a Microchip MCU and the PIC32’s highest number of serial channels. Features include:
- Performance of 330 DMIPS and 3.28 CoreMarks/MHz.
- Dual-panel, live-update Flash (up to 2 MB), large RAM (512 KB) and the connectivity peripherals.
- 10/100 Ethernet MAC, Hi-Speed USB MAC/PHY (a first for PIC MCUs) and dual CAN ports—needed to support today’s demanding applications.
