Mouser stocks Microchip’s low power PIC32MM microcontrollers
Distributor, Mouser Electronics, now stocks Microchip’s PIC32MM microcontrollers. They are the company’s lowest power and most cost-effective family of 32bit PIC32 microcontrollers and bridges the gap between the company’s PIC24F XLP and PIC32MX families. It is the first PIC32 to feature core independent peripherals, designed to offload the CPU for lower power and lower system design.
The microcontrollers are based on the microAptiv UC 32bit core with five-stage pipeline and a MIPS32-enhanced architecture, which are integrated with the compact microMIPS instruction set and a shadow register set to enable a 79 CoreMark score at 25MHz. The microMIPS ISA combines 16- and 32bit instructions for compact code size. The devices offer 64kbytes of flash memory and 8kbytes of RAM, two analogue comparators with input multiplexing, a 5bit DAC, and a software-selectable 10/12bit ADC.
Sleep modes are down to 500nA, while retaining RAM, together with core independent peripherals, such as configurable logic cells and multiple-output capture compare PWMs (MCCPs), for LED and sensorless brushless DC motor control applications.
