New additions to Microchip Technology Inc.'s 70 MIPS dsPIC33E and PIC24E product families build on Microchip’s motor control and general-purpose device series that include integrated Op Amps and a Charge Time Measurement Unit (CTMU) for temperature sensing or mTouch capacitive touch sensing. The devices feature 70 MIPS of performance for motor control, sensing, actuators, and other embedded applications.
The new Digital Signal Controllers (DSCs) and microcontrollers include pin and feature compatible devices ranging from 32-256 KB of Flash memory, enabling designers to easily migrate within the family. These devices are also code compatible with Microchip’s existing dsPIC33F products, providing a migration path from 40 to 70 MIPS.

New on-chip peripherals, such as integrated Op Amps, reduce board space and the need for external components. These Op Amps can be used in a variety of sensing applications where signal amplification is required.
Microchip’s suite of development tools is compatible with the dsPIC33E and PIC24E devices. For motor control, the low voltage dsPICDEM MCLV-2 Development Board (part # DM330021-2, $199) and high voltage dsPICDEM MCHV-2 Development System (part # DM330023-2, $699) are available today to provide designers with motor control development systems that enable customers to take full advantage of the internal Op Amps.
The dsPIC33E and dsPIC24E devices are available today for sampling and volume production, starting $1.80 each, in 10,000-unit quantities. The dsPIC33E and PIC24E families are offered in a wide variety of packages, including 28-pin QFN, SSOP, SPDIP, and SOIC; 36-pin VTLA; 44-pin TQFP, VTLA and QFN; and 64-pin TQFP and QFN packages.
