25-April-2011 - Microchip Technology has expanded their 16-bit PIC24 microcontroller portfolio with the Microchip PIC24F32KA, which include a 12-bit ADC, 512Bytes of EEPROM, and support for Microchip's intelligent mTouch™ capacitive sensing.
This is the first Microchip PIC24 microcontroller with a 12-bit ADC.
Microchip PIC24F32KA Features
Features of the new PIC24F32KA include:
- 32 MHz 16-bit PIC24 Core
- nanoWatt XLP Technology with sleep currents down to 20nA
- Single-cycle 16x16 multiply
- Single-cycle barrel shifter
- 32KBytes Flash (16KBytes Flash on PIC24F16KA)
- 2KBytes RAM
- 512Bytes Data EEPROM
- Five 16-bit timers
- Three PWM outputs
- 16 channels of 12-bit ADC
- Two UARTs
- Intelligent mTouch capacitive sensing Module
- TQFP44,UQFN48, SOIC28 Packages
- SOIC20, PDIP20, SSOP20 (PIC24F16KA only)
The Microchip PIC24FXXKA3XX microcontroller operating voltage is 1.8 to 3.6V, while the PIC24FVXXKA3XX microcontrollers have operating voltages from 2 to 5V.
Powerful 16-bit CPU Core
The PIC24F32 has a powerful 17x17bit hardware multiply block, capable of 16x16 signed or unsigned multiply operations. Every multiply is single-cycle. The core also contains a 16-bit barrel-shifter capable single-cycle multi-bit arithmetic and logic shiftts. All multi-bit shift instructions require the Register Direct Addressing mode for both the operand (source) and destination (result).
Microchip PIC24F32KA Development Tools
The new Microchip PIC24F32KA304 Plug-In Module plugs into the Microchip Explorer 16 Development Board and provides real-time debugging of the PIC24F32KA. PDIP20 and PDIP28 devices are supported by the XLP 16-bit Development Board.
