Microchip announces the company’s lowest power and most cost-effective family of 32-bit PIC32 microcontrollers (MCUs).
The Microchip PIC32MM family bridges the gap between the company’s popular PIC24F XLP and PIC32MX families. The new family is the first PIC32 to feature core independent peripherals, designed to offload the CPU for lower power and lower system design cost. The PIC32MM devices are supported by the Microchip MPLAB Code Configurator (MCC) to help simplify and accelerate designs.
Today’s embedded applications targeting the Internet of Things (IoT), consumer, industrial control, and motor control require flexible MCUs that consume less power, are more cost effective and have smaller form factors.
For applications demanding low power and longer battery life, the PIC32MM has sleep modes down to 500 nA. Applications with space constraints will benefit from the small 4x4 mm package options. The PIC32MM devices include core independent peripherals such as Configurable Logic Cells (CLC) and Multiple-output Capture Compare PWMs (MCCPs) which help enable sensorless BLDC motor-control applications.
The PIC32MM family is available in mass production today in 20-pin QFN and SSOP; 28-pin µQFN, QFN, SOIC, SSOP, SPDIP; 36-pin QFN; and 40-pin uQFN packaging. Devices are available in 16 KB, 32 KB, and 64 KB Flash variants.
