Lower-power models added to PIC32MX range

16 August 2017 DSP, Micros & Memory

Microchip announced a new family of eXtreme Low Power (XLP) technology 32-bit microcontrollers (MCUs). The PIC32MX1/2 XLP family offers current PIC32MX customers an easy migration path to achieve higher performance at much lower power, enabling both increased functions and longer battery life in portable applications. The new family increases performance in small pin-count devices with little code rework for existing customers.

Microchip’s XLP technology is designed for wearable technology, wireless sensor networks and other smart connected devices, and offers low-current operating modes for run and sleep, where extreme low-power applications spend 90% to 99% of their time. XLP technology enables deep sleep currents down to 673 nA. The new devices offer over 40% higher performance than the existing PCI32MX1/2 portfolio while reducing average run currents by 50%.

The PIC32MX1/2 XLP family offers a range of memory configurations with 128/256 KB Flash and 32/64 KB of RAM in packages ranging from 28 to 44 pins. They also include a diverse set of peripherals at a low cost, including I2S for digital audio, 116 DMIPS performance for executing audio and advanced control applications, a 10-bit, 1 MSps 13-channel ADC and serial communications peripherals. The PIC32MX2 series also supports USB device, host and OTG functionality.
