Microchip announced it’s newest 32-bit PIC32 microcontrollers (MCUs) ideal for today’s embedded applications such as Internet of Things (IoT), consumer, industrial control, and motor control which require MCUs that consume less power, are more cost effective and have smaller form factors.
With volume pricing starting at $0.60, sleep modes down to 500 nA, and compact 4 x 4 mm packages, the PIC32MM family offers a compelling solution for applications with budget, power and size constraints. Supported by the popular MPLAB Code Configurator tool, these PIC32MM devices are easy to set up and accelerate design.
The new PIC32MM devices include core independent peripherals such as Configurable Logic Cells (CLC) and Multiple-output Capture Compare PWMs (MCCPs) which help enable sensorless BLDC motor control applications. These core independent peripherals help to offload the CPU for lower power and lower system design.
All PIC32MM devices are supported by MPLAB X IDE and XC32 compiler to help accelerate development. A new PIC32MM processor plug-in module is also available, which plugs into the Explorer 16 Development Board.
The Explorer 16 Development Board is a low-cost modular development system for Microchip’s 16-bit and 32-bit microcontrollers. It supports devices from the PIC24, dsPIC and PIC32 families. A variety of families are supported with processor Plug-In Modules (PIMs) for easy device swapping.
The PIC32MM MCUs are available in 20-pin QFN and SSOP; 28-pin uQFN, QFN, SOIC, SSOP, SPDIP; 36-pin QFN; and 40-pin uQFN packaging. Devices are available in 16 KB, 32 KB, and 64 KB Flash variants, with volume pricing starting at $0.60 USD.
