The Microchip's new family of Digital Signal Controllers brings new features while lowering power consumption, enabling higher efficiency in AC-DC and DC-DC power supplies, HID & LED lighting, solar inverters, and other power conversion applications.
The five-member dsPIC33FJ09GS302 family is optimized for digital-power applications via integrated high-speed ADCs, a zero-wait-state signal processing core, and flexible high-resolution PWMs. These peripherals are integrated for streamlined interoperation, enabling sub-microsecond digital control loops.
Microchip expands its certified Full-Speed USB 2.0 Device PIC® microcontroller portfolio with three new Enhanced Midrange 8-bit families comprising 15 scalable MCUs ranging from 14 to 100 pins with up to 128 KB of Flash.
All feature internal clock sources with the 0.25% clock accuracy necessary for USB communication, which saves up to US$0.15 by eliminating the need for an external crystal.
Additionally, all three families are eXtreme Low Power compliant, with power consumption down to 35 µA/MHz Active and 20 nA in Sleep mode.
These latest devices also feature USB On-the-Go (OTG) capabilities, making them ideal for developing audio accessories and other applications in the consumer, industrial, medical and automotive markets.
Microchip announces a new family of 8-bit microcontrollers featuring next-generation analogue and digital peripherals, making them ideal for general-purpose applications, as well as battery charging, LED lighting, ballast-control, power-conversion and system-control applications.
The PIC12F(HV)752 MCUs feature an integrated Complementary Output Generator peripheral that provides non-overlapping, complementary waveforms for inputs such as comparators and Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) peripherals, while enabling dead-band control, auto shutdown, auto reset, phase control and blanking control.
Additionally, the new MCUs feature 1.75 KB of self read-write programme memory, 64B of RAM, an on-chip 10-bit ADC, Capture-Compare PWM modules, high-performance comparators down to 40 ns response, and two 50 mA-capable I/Os, enabling engineers to increase overall system capabilities and reduce costs.
