Microchip has introduced sixteen new 8-bit nanoWatt XLP Flash microcontrollers targeted for low power applications. These new microcontrollers boast a run current of 43 µA/MHz at 1.8V  and a sleep current listed at 20nA.

These new sixteen microcontrollers are available in pin counts from 8- to 64-pins.

Microchip nanoWatt XLP Product Roadmap
Microchip nanoWatt XLP Product Roadmap
Microchip's Enhanced Mid-range 8-bit architecture includes 14 new instructions that result in up to 40% better code execution over previous-generation 8-bit PIC16 microcontrollers. This provides up to a 50% increase in performance over the previous PIC16. These new microcontrollers are manufactured in Microchip's 0.35µ technology (0.22µ to 0.18µ metal)

Specifications
Specifications of the new microcontrollers include:

  • 32 MHz operation
  • 1.8 – 5.5V (including full analog peripheral operation)
  • 20 nA @ 1.8V Standby current (Typical) (PIC16F19xx: 60 nA @ 1.8V)
  • 31.25 kHz to 32 MHz, Software Selectable
  • Up to 14 KBytes Flash (PIC16F19xx: up to 28 KB Flash)
  • 256 Bytes Data EEPROM
  • Up to 1 KBytes SRAM
  • Up to 4 x 8-bit Timers
  • 1 x 16-bit Timer
  • Real-Time Clock
  • 2 x MI2C/SPI
  • 1 x EUSART
  • 25mA source/sink I/Os
  • Up to 12 x 10-bit A/D (PIC16F19xx: 17 x 10-bit A/D)
  • Up to 2 Comparators with Rail-to-Rail Inputs (PIC16F19xx: 3)
  • Up to 4-channel PWM with Independent Time (PIC16F19xx 5)
  • mTouch Capacitive Touch Sensing Up to 12 Channels (PIC16F19xx: Up to 16 Channels)
  • LCD Drive 184 Segments (PIC16F19xx only)
  • Data Signal Modulator (PIC12F182x & PIC16F182x only)

Interrupt latency for synchronous interrupts is 3 or 4 instruction cycles. For asynchronous interrupts, latency is 3 to 5 instruction cycles, depending on when the interrupt occurs.

Development Tools

Microchip's F1 Evaluation Platform is available for developing embedded systems with these new enhanced 8-bit PIC microcontrollers. The PIC16F1937 Plug-In Module for Microchip's PIC18 Explorer Board is also available.

Microchip's PICDEM Lab Development Kit can be used with the PIC1XF182X microcontrollers.  The kit includes development board containing five popular 8-bit PIC microcontrollers; a bag of discrete components; a debugger/programmer, and a CD containing a User's Guide, labs and application examples.

Microchip‘s complete suite of standard development tools can also be used with the new microcontrollers, including the free MPLAB IDE, along with a free HI-TECH C Lite for PIC16 microcontrollers.

Additional development tools are also available.

Packaging, Pricing & Availability
The PIC12F182x, PIC16F182x, and PIC16F19xx microcontrollerss are available in DFN, PDIP, QFN, SOIC, TQFP, TSSOP and UQFN packages of varying sizes, from 8- to 64-pins; at prices ranging from $0.69 to $1.74 each, in 10,000-unit quantities.
