Featured 16-bit PIC® MCU and dsPIC® DSC USB devices from Microchip

Microchip’s 16-bit product profile offers a wide variety of USB devices, from low power to high performance, from low pin count to high pin count, from extremely low power to unique peripherals. We will discuss the some of the featured USB 16bit MCUs from Microchip in the following sections.

As more electronic applications require low power or battery power, energy conservation becomes paramount. Today’s applications must consume little power, and in extreme cases, last for up to 15-20 years, while running from a single battery. To enable applications like these, products with Microchip’s XLP Technology offer the industry’s lowest currents for Run and Sleep, where extreme low power applications spend 90-99% of their time. Microchip’s PIC24FJ64GB004 family offers XLP with USB functionality enabling customers to implement USB applications like battery operated application, home electronics and appliances which require low power consumption.

Challenge you limits with 70 MIPS of performance offered by dsPIC33EP DSC and PIC24EP MCU. These 3rd generation of dsPIC and MCU families are fully upward compatible with 2nd generation of dsPIC33F and PIC24F. dsPIC33EP and PIC24EP devices enable advanced features for user-interface, general-purpose and motor-control designs.

All devices in Microchip’s 16-bit USB portfolio are supported by the Microchip Application Libraries (MLA) and MPLAB® X IDE.
