CHANDLER, Ariz., April 25, 2005 [NASDAQ:  MCHP] — Microchip Technology Inc., a leading provider of microcontroller and analog semiconductors, today announced the first ten members of its high-pincount, high-density memory PIC18F87J10 Flash microcontroller family, which double the performance in low-voltage applications by delivering up to 10 MIPS at 3V.

All Microchip PIC18 microcontrollers execute one instruction every machine cycle. A  machine cycle is 4 clock cycles.  This gives 10 MIPS performance @40 MHz and translates into 10 MHz access  to either internal or external Flash memory. With the internal 4 x PLL circuit, an external 10 MHz crystal can be used  to obtain an internal 40 MHz clock.

The Microchip PIC18F87J10 8-bit microcontroller family provides linear access (no paging) to as much as 128 Kbytes of onboard Flash memory, while offering complete code and tool compatibility with all PIC18F microcontrollers.

"This new PIC18F family redefines the price-performance ratio for high-pincount and high-density memory 8-bit microcontrollers serving complex embedded applications," said Mitch Obolsky, vice president of Microchip’s Advanced Microcontroller Architecture Division.

Target applications for the PIC18F87J10 family include: industrial (TCP/IP interface, home-alarm/security-system keypad, server power-supply and temperature controller, power-meter hub, central AC communication controller); consumer (wireless Internet-enabled appliance, hands-free cell phone adapter, cappuccino machine, two-way pager); automotive (car alarm); medical (bio flow meter).

Other key features of the Microchip PIC18F87J10 family include:

  • 32 to 128 Kbytes of Flash program memory
  • 10MHz (max) access speed to internal Flash memory
  • Up to 4 Kbytes of data RAM
  • Two Enhanced Universal Synchronous/Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter modules for RS232, RS485 and LIN serial interfaces
  • Two Master Synchronous Serial Port modules, each supporting Master I2C or SPI interfaces
  • Five Timers/Counters (3 x 16-bit, 2 x 8-bit)
  • 15-channel, 10-bit Analog-to-Digital Converter with auto-acquisition timing
  • Two Analog Comparators
  • Three Enhanced Capture/Compare/PWM modules with support for MOSFET (H-bridge) motor drives
  • Two standard Capture/Compare/PWM modules
  • Extended Watchdog Timer with prescalar options
  • Brownout Reset
  • 8-bit/16-bit mode External Memory Access (up to 2 Mbytes)
  • Enhanced Instruction Set for improved C Compiler efficiency
