8-pin flash MCU targets distributed intelligence applications

8 May 2002 DSP, Micros & Memory

Microchip is offering new 8-pin PICmicro flash microcontrollers that can provide a complete solution for distributed intelligence applications. Traditional embedded control designs rely upon a single processor that can impose higher costs and design limitations. Modern distributed intelligence systems use multiple processors to achieve greater design flexibility, reduced wiring, feature-rich end products, Internet connectivity and a lower total system cost. With one of the industry's highest performance at lowest prices, the PIC12F629 and PIC12F675 microcontrollers offer a complete solution for distributed intelligence systems.

The devices feature a 14 bit instruction set with 1,8 KB of flash program memory, 64 bytes RAM and 128 bytes EEPROM for extra storage. This is twice the amount of flash, RAM and data EEPROM memory usually offered according to Microchip. Both devices feature an analog comparator, an internal 4 MHz oscillator and an in-circuit debug capability. The PIC12F675 also offers four channels of 10 bit A/D. Additional features include EEPROM write capability over the entire voltage range of 2,0 to 5,5 V.

The devices suit embedded control applications in the consumer, industrial, telecommunication and automotive markets. They are pin and code-compatible with all of Microchip's existing 8-pin PICmicro microcontrollers and are supported by a wide range of modular development tools. They are available in 8-pin PDIP and SOIC packages.
