Microchip and TI MCUs focus for RS


LONDON — RS Components is showcasing new microcontrollers and development kits including those from Microchip and TI at this week's Embedded Systems Conference and Exhibition at the Farnborough International Show Centre (FIVE).

RS has recently launched over 1,100 new devices into its range from Microchip Technology and over 8,000 new products from Texas Instruments (TI). The increased offer means RS now features over 11,000 TI products.

New introductions from Microchip include the company's PIC microcontroller nanoWatt XLP family, with low sleep current consumption. XLP technology provides design engineers with a rich and compatible low-power migration path that includes on-chip peripherals for USB and mTouch.

Features of the PIC MCUs with nanoWatt XLP technology include sleep currents down to 20nA, real-time clock currents down to 500nA and watchdog timer currents down to 400nA, making the range ideal for any battery-powered or power-constrained application.

Microchip has integrated all three features into its 8-bit and 16-bit XLP series, providing more freedom for designers who need products to operate longer while using less battery power.

Supporting PIC MCUs with nanoWatt XLP technology are three new PIMS (Plug in Modules) that fit into Microchip's existing 8-bit / 16-bit Explorer Boards. RS has also increased its range of Microchip development kits and accessories available direct-from-stock to support design engineers in their development of PIC MCU based solutions.
