MCU family gets new low-pin-count members

20 February 2008 DSP, Micros & Memory

Microchip has announced three additions to the PIC24H high-performance 16-bit microcontroller family, featuring low pin-counts with up to 32 KBytes of Flash program memory in packages as small as 6 x 6 mm. These 28- and 40-pin, 40 MIPS devices are developed for cost-sensitive, space-constrained applications.

The PIC24HJ32 family also features Peripheral Pin Select, which allows designers to remap digital I/O to optimise board layout - enabling smaller boards, less noise and the use of a lower pin-count microcontroller.

The PIC24HJ32 family is supported by the full complement of tools that are common to all of Microchip's controllers, including the free MPLAB Integrated Development Environment with its Visual Device Initialiser component, which graphically assists designers in mapping pins and initialising code for the on-chip Peripheral Pin Select pin-mapping function. The MPLAB C30 C compiler provides high code densities, along with math and peripheral libraries. For emulation and debugging, Microchip offers the full-featured MPLAB REAL ICE tool and the low-cost MPLAB ICD 2 tool.

The PIC24HJ32GP202 is available in 28-pin SDIP, SOIC and QFN packages, and the PIC24HJ32GP204 and PIC24HJ16GP304 are both available in 44-pin TQFP and QFN packages.
