Microchip Launches New Range of PIC32 Microcontrollers With Core Independent Peripherals
The New PIC32MM Family Offers Lower Power and Small Package Sizes Making Them Ideal for Internet of Things Applications
Microchip® have released 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. The PIC32MM devices are supported by the Microchip MPLAB® Code Configurator (MCC) to help simplify and
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 4 x 4 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.
“With volume pricing starting at $0.60, sleep modes down to 500 nA, and compact 4 x 4 mm packages, the PIC32MM family offers a compelling solution for applications with budget, power and size constraints,” said Joe Thomsen, vice president of Microchip’s MCU16 business unit. “Supported by the popular MPLAB Code Configurator tool, these PIC32MM devices are easy to set up, accelerating design schedules for rapidly changing markets.”
