Microchip Technology has introduced new PIC10F, PIC12F, and PIC16F microcontrollers that boast configurable logic cells (CLCs), enabling Engineers to have peripherals talk to each other in new and interesting ways. These new microcontrollers are available in 6- to 20-pin packages.

The PIC10F(LF)32X and PIC1XF(LF)150X microcontrollers include new peripherals such as Configurable Logic Cells (CLCs), Complementary Waveform Generators (CWGs) and Numerically Controlled Oscillators (NCOs).

The CLC peripherals on the PIC10F(LF)32X and PIC1XF(LF)150X microcontrollers provide software control of configurable logic between peripherals and I/Os.

The CWG peripheral controls peripherals to generate complementary waveforms with dead-band control and auto shutdown.

The NCO peripheral provides linear frequency control at high resolution, targeting applications such as lighting ballast, tone generation and other resonant control circuits.

PIC Microcontrollers with CLC Features:
Features of these new PIC10 microcontrollers include:

  • PIC10F, PIC12F, and PIC16F cores at 16MHz
  • 1.75KBytes to 14KBytes Flash
  • 64Bytes to 512Bytes RAM
  • Watchdog
  • Power-On Reset
  • Two 8-bit timers
  • One 16-bit timer
  • Four 10-bit PWM
  • Up to 12-channels 10-bit ADC
  • one 5-bit DAC on some devices
  • Up to two comparators
  • SPI
  • I2C
  • Configurable Logic Cell
  • Complementary Waveform Generator
  • Numerically Controlled Oscillators

Low Power performance for these parts are spec'ed at an Active Current of 30uA/MHz and sleep current of 20nA.

A free CLC Configuration Tool is available from Microchip.

Microchip PIC Microcontroller Packaging
The PIC10F(LF)320 and PIC10F(LF)322 microcontrollers are available in a 6-pin SOT-23 package, as well as 8-pin PDIP and 2 mm x 3 mm DFN packages. 

The PIC12F(LF)1501 microcontrollers will be available in 8-pin PDIP, SOIC, MSOP and 2 mm x 3 mm DFN packages.

The PIC16F(LF)1503 microcontrollers will be in 14-pin PDIP, SOIC and TSSOP packages, as well as a 3 mm x 3 mm QFN package.

The PIC16F(LF)1507 microcontroller is available in 20-pin SSOP, PDIP, SOIC, and 4 mm x 4 mm QFN packages, as will the PIC16F(LF)1508/9 MCUs, when available.

Pricing and Availability
Pricing starts at $0.37 each, in 10,000-unit quantities. Samples and volume-production quantities of the PIC10F(LF)320, PIC10F(LF)322 and PIC16F(LF)1507 microcontrollers are available today.  The PIC1XF(LF)1501/3/8/9 microcontrollers are expected to be available for sampling and purchase within the next six months.
