NEW DELHI, INDIA: Microchip Technology, a leading provider of microcontroller and analog semiconductors, has announced the first six members of the PIC16F193X family of MCUs featuring Microchip's enhanced mid-range 8-bit core -- the PIC16F1934, PIC16LF1934, PIC16F1936, PIC16LF1936, PIC16F1937 and PIC16LF1937.
The new family extends Microchip's PIC microcontroller portfolio of over 550 compatible members, targeting a wide variety of applications in the appliance, consumer, industrial, medical and automotive markets.
The family's increased memory and core capabilities deliver enhanced support for both C and Assembly programmers, and "LF" family members feature Microchip's nanoWatt XLP Technology -- for extreme low power consumption -- enabling designs to achieve world-leading battery lifetime.
Continuing in the PIC MCU tradition of integrating extensive peripherals, the new family offers Direct LCD drive and support for mTouch capacitive touch-sensing solutions.
"We are pleased to announce the first family of microcontrollers based upon our enhanced mid-range 8-bit core," said Steve Drehobl, vice president of Microchip's Security, Microcontroller and Technology Development Division. "Building upon the worldwide customer acceptance of Microchip's existing Mid-range 8-bit products, the new devices enable new levels of functionality at lower system cost."
