Microchip – Low-cost dsPIC digital signal controllers and PIC24F microcontrollers (dsPIC33FJ32MC104)Oct 18 2012 - Semiconductors [More Semiconductors Articles]
Microchip announces a new addition to its 16-bit PIC microcontroller (MCU) and dsPIC digital signal controller (DSC) portfolios with the cost-effective dsPIC33FJ32MC104 family which offers up to 32KB Flash, 16MIPS of performance, and small pin outs for cost-sensitive motor control, consumer, medical and industrial applications.
The dsPIC33FJ32MC104 family delivers a low-cost 16-bit solution with powerful peripherals in packages ranging from 18 to 44 pins. Using a dsPIC DSC to digitally control a motor enables several industry-leading features, including greater energy efficiency, sensorless operation and more precise control. The dsPIC33FJ32MC104, with its low-cost and integrated DSP capabilities in addition to on-chip and advanced motor-control peripherals, enables sensorless BLDC motor control in cost-sensitive applications, such as power tools and high-end toys. The dsPIC33FJ32M104 is an ‘excellent’ solution for those working on low-cost motor-control applications by providing a higher performance with the 16-bit dsPIC core at low cost, says the company.
The dsPIC33FJ32MC104 family is supported by Microchip’s free MPLAB X Integrated Development Environment (IDE). A Plug-In Module (MA330032) is designed to demonstrate the capabilities of the dsPIC33FJ32MC104 motor-control device using the dsPICDEM MCLV-2 Development Board (DM330021-2) and dsPICDEM MCHV-2 Development Board (DM330023-2). It is also compatible with the dsPICDEM MCLV Development Board (DM330021) and dsPICDEM MCHV Development Board (DM330023).
The dsPIC33FJ32MC101, dsPIC33FJ32GP101, PIC24FJ32MC101devices are offered in 20-pin SOIC and PDIP packages. The dsPIC33FJ32MC102, dsPIC33FJ32GP102, PIC24FJ32MC102 devices are offered in 28-pin SOIC, SSOP, QFN packages, as well as a 36-pin VTLA package. The dsPIC33FJ32MC104, dsPIC33FJ32GP104, PIC24FJ32MC104 are offered in 44-pin TQFP, VTLA, and QFN packages.
