Microchip has announced a new family of PIC32MX1/2 microcontrollers (MCUs) in 256/64 KB Flash/Ram configurations. , USB audio, graphics, touch sensing and general-purpose embedded control. The new MCUs are an expansion of the PIC32MX1/2 series of low-cost small footprint 32-bit microcontrollers. They now offer larger Flash and RAM options with a feature-rich peripheral set at a lower cost.
The PIC32MX1/2 boasts a wide variety of features including I2S for digital audio, large memory configuration and 83 DMIPS performance for executing Bluetooth Audio and advanced control applications, CTMU for capacitive touch sensing, 8-bit PMP for graphics or external memory, a 10-bit 1- Msps 13-channel ADC and serial communications peripherals with the PIC32MX2 series supporting USB-device/host/OTG functionality.
PIC32MX1/2 MCUs are targeted for low-cost applications in the consumer markets, such as Bluetooth speakers, consumer music-player docks, noise-cancelling headsets, infotainment systems, clock radios, and entertainment-system sound bars, as well as touch screens with buttons and sliders, and USB device/host/OTG applications.
In the medical and industrial markets, applications include industrial-grade noise-cancelling headsets and medical/industrial displays with touch-sensing capabilities.
