Microchip launches 8-bit MCUs with integrated configurable logic in 6- to 20-pin packages

by donpedro

Microchip announces new 8-bit PIC® microcontrollers (MCUs) in 6- to 20-pin packages that feature configurable logic and a high level of peripheral integration. The PIC10F(LF)32x and PIC1×F(LF)150x MCUs each feature new peripherals, including Configurable Logic Cells (CLCs), Complementary Waveform Generators (CWGs) and Numerically Controlled Oscillators (NCOs), which introduce new functionality to low pin-count MCUs. These general-purpose MCUs expand the reach of the PIC10F, PIC12F and PIC16F families and support new applications for microcontrollers. They enable designers to enhance the functionality, reduce design size, and decrease the cost and power consumption for products such as small kitchen appliances; interior automotive lighting; consumer power tools; utility meters and other applications. The CLC peripherals on the PIC10F(LF)32× and PIC1×F(LF)150× MCUs enable software control of combinational and sequential logic, which increases the on-chip interconnection of peripherals and I/Os, thereby reducing external components, saving code space and adding functionality.
