Microchip Technology has expanded its low pin-count 16-bit eXtreme low power PIC MCUs by adding an on-chip 12-bit ADC, EEPROM, intelligent mTouch capacitive sensing, and the capability to run from a 5V supply.
The PIC24F32KA304's sleep currents is the same as that of all XLP PIC MCUs down to 20 nA. Also available is a plug-in module for the Explorer 16 development board as well 20- and 28-pin PDIP packages supported by the XLP 16-bit development board.
The PIC24F(FV)32KA304 MCU is available in 44-pin TQFP and 8 mm x 8 mm QFN packages, as well as a 48-pin 6 mm x 6 mm UQFN package. The PIC24F(FV)32KA302 MCU is available in 28-pin SOIC, SSOP, SPDIP and 6 mm x 6 mm QFN packages. The lowest pin-count options include the PIC24F(FV)16KA301 MCUs, which are available in 20-pin PDIP, SOIC and SSOP packages.
