Mouser fulfils 8-bit MCU demands for sensor designs

Microchip’s PIC16F18015 / 25 / 44 / 45 and the PIC16F18126 / 46 families of microcontrollers from Microchip Technology are designed for developers requiring an 8-bit microcontroller for a sensor design. Distributor Mouser Electronics now offers these two families to support sensor signal conditioning and real-time control functionality for cost-sensitive projects.

Sensor and control applications can be met with the PIC16F18015 / 25 / 44 / 45 microcontrollers provide a balance of flash memory (ranging from seven to 14kbytes), robust control and peripheral capabilities, and speeds up to 32MHz. 

All devices in this family include up to 256bytes of EEPROM, a 10-bit ADC with computation (ADCC), automated capacitive voltage divider (CVD) techniques for advanced capacitive touch sensing, an 8-bit DAC module, three pulse width modulators (PWMs) with two additional capture / compare PWMs, and a complementary waveform generator (CWG). There are also four configurable logic cells for further control functionality and an array of communication peripherals.

The PIC16F18126 / 46 microcontrollers are similar in memory and operating speed but are equipped with features geared more toward higher-end sensor applications which require additional digital functionality, higher resolution and precision timing. MCUs in this family include 28kbytes of program flash memory, a 12-bit differential ADCC, two 8-bit DACs, a 16-bit PWM peripheral and a CWG. This family of devices also provides four configurable logic cells for further control functionality and a choice of communication peripherals.

Mouser Electronics claims to offer the world’s widest selection of the newest semiconductors and electronic components. To help speed customers’ designs, Mouser’s website hosts an extensive library of technical resources, including a Technical Resource Centre, product data sheets, supplier-specific reference designs, application notes, technical design information and engineering tools.

Mouser Electronics’ website is available in multiple languages and currencies and features more than 6,8 million products from over 1.200 manufacturer brands. Mouser offers 27 support locations worldwide to provide customer service in local language, currency and time zone.
