Microchip Expands CAN Microcontroller Line With Cost-Effective 8-bit PIC® MCUs

by donpedro

Microchip announces the PIC18F “K80” 8-bit CAN microcontrollers (MCUs) featuring 1.8 to 5.5V operation and eXtreme Low Power (XLP) technology, for the industry’s lowest sleep current consumption of less than 20nA. The new MCUs also feature an on-chip 12-bit Analogue-to-Digital Converter (ADC) and a peripheral which enables mTouch™ capacitive touch-sensing user interfaces. The new MCUs are ideal for automotive applications, such as body control modules, lighting, door/seat/steering/window and HVAC controls; building automation applications such as elevators and escalators, lighting, sensors and air conditioning controls; as well as industrial applications including security systems, alarm controls and remote monitors.
The PIC18F K80 family has been developed for designers who need to add cost-effective CAN communication to their applications combined with extremely low power in sleep and active modes, and robust operation up to 5.5V.
For automotive and industrial applications, the PIC18F K80 CAN MCUs enable smaller, more cost-effective and robust control using the integrated CAN peripheral. For applications that require low power and accuracy, the MCUs deliver best-in-industry current ratings for longer battery life, as well as an on-chip 12-bit ADC and touch-sensing peripheral for advanced sensors.
