PIC16F15386family with CIPs uses MPLAB® Code Configurator for quick development

The PIC16F15386 family, themost powerful launching point into the 8-bit PIC®microcontroller (MCU) portfolio, is now available from Microchip Technology Inc., a leading provider of microcontroller, mixed-signal, analogand Flash-IP solutions. In addition to our current Core Independent Peripherals (CIPs), this family includes a high accuracy 32MHz internal oscillator and memory features like Memory Access Partition (MAP) with bootloader-friendly write-protection to prevent accidental over-write. Device Information Area (DIA) offers protected storage for unique device identification and calibration values. The PIC16F15386 family also offers acomprehensive, easy-to-use development experiencewith Microchip’s MPLAB® Xpress with MPLAB Code Configurator(MCC) – the quickest way to generate application code. The family is suitable for a broad range of general purpose and low-power applications.

The scalable family offers up to 28KB Flash and 2KB RAMin8-to 48-pin package options. It is the first 8-bit PIC MCU family to offer the 48-pin package, adding more Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC) channels and I/Os.The family offers high levels of CIP integrationto perform system functions (signal generation, motor control, safety monitoring, system communications, and human interface) outside the core while consuming as little power as possible. The new MCUs also containpower management features (IDLE and DOZE modes and Peripheral Module Disable) that allow engineers tooptimise the balance between power consumption and performance.

“We’ve always offered a diverse portfolio of products with large market appeal,” said Steve Drehobl, vice president of Microchip’s 8-bit MCU division.“With the combination of the most requested features and peripherals by our large base of PIC MCU users, the flexibility in memory size and package optionsand the availability ofMPLAB Xpress with MCC, we expect the PIC16F15386 family to be popular with experienced and first timePIC MCU designers.”
