PIC Microcontrollers with XLP Technology Run from a Single Battery The MCP1623/4 and MCP1640 Synchronous Boost Regulators enable single cell battery applications, ideal for small, portable and lightweight applications. ■ Power any PIC MCU down to 0.35V ■ Provides 2–5.5V fi xed/stable output voltage Development Tools XLP 8-bit Development Board (DM240313) ■ Supports PIC16 and PIC18 devices ■ LCD display and buttons ■ Flexible power options ■ Expansion connector ■ Current measurement points 8-bit PIC® Microcontroller Solutions 7 eXtreme Low Power (XLP) Technology ■ Sleep currents down to 9 nA ■ Active Mode currents down to 30 μA/MHz ■ Execution Effi ciency with more than 80% PIC MCU single cycle instructions ■ Execute code smarter, sleep longer, maximize battery life ■ Wake-up sources including RTC, WDT, BOR, Interrupts, Reset or POR Low Power Peripheral Integration Many of today’s low power products need advanced peripherals. Microchip offers low power devices with peripherals like USB, LCD and mTouch capacitive sensing. This eliminates the need for additional parts in the application, which saves cost, current and complexity. Low Power Reliability In addition to peripherals, products with XLP have system supervisory circuits specially designed for battery powered products. ■ Watchdog Timer down to 200 nA, provides protection against system failure ■ Real-Time Clock/Calendar down to 400 nA, provides precise timekeeping ■ Brown-out Reset down to 45 nA, protects as batteries are depleted or changed Battery Life Estimator The XLP Battery Life Estimator is a free software utility to aid you in developing eXtreme Low Power applications with Microchip’s PIC MCUs featuring XLP technology. ■ Profi le your application Run and Sleep time (duty cycle) ■ Select operating temperature and operating voltage ■ Pre-loaded with most common battery specifi cations www.microchip.com/BLE Featured XLP Product Families Device Family Pins Flash (KB) Sleep (nA) Active (μA/MHz) Special Features PIC16F727 20–44 3.5–14 20 55 – PIC16F1509 20 7–14 25 30 CLC, CWG, NCO PIC16F1829 8–20 3.5–14 20 50 – PIC16F1947 28–64 7–28 60 55 LCD PIC18F46K20 28–40 8–64 50 138 – PIC18F87K22 20–80 8–128 20 190 – PIC18F47J53 28–44 16–128 9 197 USB PIC18F66K80 28–64 32–64 13 100 CAN PIC18F87K90 64–80 32–128 20 180 LCD All numbers are typical values, sleep numbers refer to the lowest power Sleep mode available on each family. www.microchip.com/xlp
