Low-Cost Motor Control and General Purpose MCUs

Supported 8-bit & 16-bit Architectures: PIC® Microcontrollers

Microchip’s 16 MIPS, 16 KB of Flash dsPIC33F and PIC24F family brings the performance of a 16-bit dsPIC33F or PIC24F to cost sensitive applications. The dsPIC33F and PIC24F 16 MIPS family can be tailored for motor control or general purpose applications. dsPIC33F devices include DSP hardware to accelerate math operations. For motor control applications, Microchip offers an ultra low-cost motor control starter kit for sensorless BLDC motor control.


  • High performance 16-bit, 16 MIPS dsPIC33F or PIC24F Core (dsPIC33F includes DSP hardware)
  • 16 KB of Flash
  • 18 to 36-pin packages available, including SPDIP and ultra small 36-pin 5×5 mm VTLA
