Microchip launches PIC32 with core independent peripherals

Microchip Technology Inc. (NASDAQ: MCHP) has launched the company´s lowest power and most cost-effective family of 32-bit PIC32 microcontrollers (MCUs), the company said.

The Microchip PIC32MM family bridges the gap between the company´s popular PIC24F XLP and PIC32MX families. The new family is the first PIC32 to feature core independent peripherals, designed to offload the CPU for lower power and lower system design. The PIC32MM devices are supported by the Microchip MPLAB code configurator (MCC) to help simplify and accelerate designs.

Embedded applications targeting the Internet of Things (IoT), consumer, industrial control, and motor control require flexible MCUs that consume less power, are more cost effective and have smaller form factors. For applications demanding low power and longer battery life, the PIC32MM has sleep modes down to 500 nA.

Microchip Technology Inc. is a provider of microcontroller, mixed-signal, analog and Flash-IP solutions.
