Microchip Adds Analog Peripherals to Baseline PIC(r) MCU Architecture

CHANDLER, Ariz., — Microchip Technology Inc., announced the first two Baseline 8-bit Flash PIC® microcontrollers with up to two comparators and an 8-bit analog-to-digital converter (ADC) in 8- and 14-pin packages. These new analog features, combined with a faster internal oscillator (8 MHz), provide designers with an easy way to integrate digital intelligence into more cost-sensitive applications.

Designers of cost-constrained systems are constantly looking for ways to increase functionality through digital intelligence, without having to increase the complexity or cost of their design. Through the integration of analog functionality onto its Baseline 8- and 14-pin microcontrollers, Microchip’s PIC12F510 (8-pin) and PIC16F506 (14-pin) provide a cost-effective option for many design engineers to replace discrete components with digital intelligence and reprogrammability.

“Microchip is continuing its leadership in the 8-bit microcontroller market, further driving the move to analog integration by offering it in our entry-level microcontrollers,” said Steve Drehobl, vice president of the Security, Microcontroller and Technology Development Division. “These Baseline PIC microcontrollers provide engineers with an easy and cost-effective solution for making the leap to the benefits of digital intelligence.”

Other significant features of the PIC12F510 and PIC16F506 include:

• Up to two comparators

• Up to 3 channels of 8-bit ADC

• 1.125 ms DRT

• Precision internal oscillator operating at up to 8 MHz with 33 instructions and two stack levels

• 1024 instructions (x12-bit program words) of Flash program memory

• 38 bytes to 67 bytes of data RAM memory

• 25 mA source/sink current IO

• Low power (100 nA) sleep current

• Wide operating voltage range from 2- to 5.5-volts

• One 8-bit timer, and one watchdog timer

• In Circuit Serial Programming™ (ICSP™) technology for programming after placement on a board

• Power-on reset, and power-saving sleep mode

The new Baseline PIC microcontrollers form the basic building blocks for a wide variety of systems across a broad range of markets. Their integrated analog functionality makes these microcontrollers well suited for applications such as battery-operated products, power supplies and identification tags. Additional example applications for the Baseline PIC microcontroller family include: Consumer Electronics (standby switches, power control, power sequencing infrared receivers, handheld products); Mechatronics (includes smart switches, mode selectors, remote I/Os, electric pumps, compressors); Home Automation (light switching and dimming, thermostats, security systems); and Small Home Appliances (blenders, toasters, coffee machines and electric toothbrushes).
