These three new devices boast sleep currents down to 20nA.

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
  • Watchdog
  • RTCC
  • Five 16-bit timers
  • Three PWM outputs
  • 16 channels of 12-bit ADC
  • Two UARTs
  • SPI
  • I2C
  • 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.

Microchip PIC24F32KA Pricing
"Pricing starts at $1.78 each, in 10,000-unit quantities."
