New Microchip PIC16F178X Offer Cost-Effective Analog and Digital Functions
The new PIC16F178X MCUs feature on-chip 12-bit ADC, 8-bit DAC, op amps, high-speed comparators, and the 16-bit PWM offers the industry's best level of advanced PWM control and accuracy via the new Programmable Switch-Mode Controllers (PSMCs).
The "LF" versions of the new chips feature what Microchip terms "eXtreme Low Power Technology", with active and sleep currents of just 32 µA/MHz and 50 nA, respectively. This makes the new parts ideal for LED lighting, battery management, digital power supply, motor control and other applications.
The new devices are are available in 28-pin SOIC, SPDIP, 6 x 6 mm QFN, and 4 x 4 mm UQFN; as well as 40-pin PDIP, TQFP, 8 x 8 mm QFN, and 5 x 5 mm UQFN packages. Pricing starts at $1.18 each, in 10,000-unit quantities.
As always, Microchip offers free samples!
