New MCU ideal for IoT, consumer, industrial control and motor control applications

30-06-2016 | Microchip Technology | Semiconductors

Microchip have announced the company’s lowest power and most cost-effective family of 32-bit PIC32 microcontrollers. The 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 devices are supported by the MPLAB Code Configurator to help simplify and accelerate designs.

Today’s embedded applications targeting the 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 500nA. Applications with space constraints will benefit from the small 4mm x 4mm package options. The PIC32MM devices include core independent peripherals such as configurable logic cells and multiple-output capture compare PWMs which help enable sensorless BLDC motor control applications.

“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.”
