Microchip has launched a new range of what it describes as low cost, high pin count 32bit PIC32 microcontrollers (MCUs). The company says that, by bringing together key features from its PICM32MX1/2 and PIC32MX5 MCU families, it has created a device suited to applications with complex code requirements.
The MCUs in the PIC32MX1/2/5 MCU series offer up to 83DMIPS performance and up to 512kbyte of flash and 64kbyte of RAM. Also integrated are CAN2.0B controllers with DeviceNet addressing support. Programmable bit rates of up to 1Mbit/s are available, while system RAM can store up to 1024 messages in 32 buffers.
Other features include four SPI/I2S interfaces for audio processing and playback, a Parallel Master Port and capacitive touchsensing hardware for graphics and touch sensing interfaces and a 10bit, 1Msample/s, 48channel A/D converter.
A 40MHz/66DMIPS speed option is available now in 64pin TQFP and QFN packages and 100pin TQFP packages. The 50MHz/83DMIPS speed option will be available early in 2015.
