Microchip’s new 8-bit PIC MCUs feature increased intelligent analog


Microchip's new PIC16F753 MCU offers integrated Complementary Output Generator (COG) peripheral that provides non-overlapping, complementary waveforms for inputs such as comparators and Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) peripherals, while enabling dead-band control, auto shutdown, auto reset, phase control and blanking control.

The PIC16F753 offers an Op Amp with 3 MHz of Gain Bandwidth Product (GBWP), and a slope compensation circuit to help in Switch Mode Power Supply applications. The new MCU features 3.5 KB of self read-write program memory, 128B of RAM, an on-chip 10-bit ADC, 9-bit DAC, Capture Compare PWM modules, high-performance comparators, and two 50 mA-capable I/Os, enabling engineers to increase overall system capabilities and reduce costs.

With increased intelligent analog capabilities, the PIC16F753 helps boost system performance and efficiency while reducing system costs, especially for newer LED-lighting and smart-energy applications. With its numerous on-chip general-purpose and specialized peripherals, including the integrated COG, high performance comparators and 50 mA outputs for direct FET drive, the PIC16F753 MCU meets the needs of various applications.

Additionally, the 8-channel, 10-bit ADC can be used to implement various sensors and mTouch sensing applications, including capacitive touch.
