16-bit Embedded Control Solutions The top challenges facing today’s embedded system designer are attaining product specification and performance goals, achieving on-time market launch and meeting cost targets. Microchip’s 16-bit microcontroller and digital signal controller families deliver the performance, peripherals, software and hardware development tools to meet these objectives The 16-bit family is comprised of several subfamilies ranging from 4 KB to 512 KB of Flash in 14 to 144 pins, with packages as small as 4 × 4 mm. The PIC24F family offers a cost-effective, low-power step up in performance, memory and peripherals for many applications that are pushing the envelope of 8-bit microcontroller capabilities. The PIC24F family features devices with eXtreme Low Power (XLP) technology, 16 MIPS performance, rich analog integration and drivers for segmented or graphical displays. For more demanding applications, the PIC24E family offers up to 70 MIPS performance and includes a robust peripheral set including PWMs, timers, CAN and op amps. The dsPIC® family of Digital Signal Controllers (DSCs) include a fully implemented Digital Signal Processor (DSP) engine, including a singlecycle 16 × 16 MAC and 40-bit accumulators, for enhanced math capabilities to execute and control high-speed precision digital control loops with the simplicity of a traditional microcontroller. Microchip’s dsPIC DSCs achieve up to 70 MIPS performance and include features for high-efficiency motor control, platinum-rated digital power supplies and other embedded control applications, including operation up to 150°C and support for both 3V and 5V applications. All 16-bit families have the same instruction set, basic peripherals and common pinouts and share the same development tool ecosystem for easy migration.
