microchip technology inc (MCHP) Key Developments

Microchip Technology Inc. Adds Two New 3-Phase Brushless Dc Motor Gate Drivers with Integrated Power Module

Microchip Technology Inc. added two new 3-phase Brushless DC (BLDC) motor gate drivers with integrated power module, LIN transceiver and Sleep mode the MCP8025 and MCP8026 (MCP8025/6). These devices can power a broad range of Microchip's dsPIC Digital Signal Controllers (DSCs) and PIC microcontrollers (MCUs), complementing their control algorithms by driving MOSFETs, sensing current, preventing short circuits, outputting zero crosses, controlling dead time and blanking time, and monitoring for fault conditions such as over/under-voltage, over-temperature and other thermal warnings. This combination enables Microchip to provide a complete motor control and drive solution for a broad range of automotive and industrial applications. Additionally, the new drivers' 150 degrees Celsius ambient temperature, low sleep current of 5 uA (typ.) and LIN transceiver make them particularly well suited for automotive designs, such as those that operate under the hood (e.g., pumps and HVAC blowers) or need to reduce key-off power consumption. The on-chip LIN transceiver is compliant with the LIN Bus 2.1 and SAE J2602 standards, as well as the previous-generation LIN 1.X standards. The MCP8025 driver is supported by Microchip's MCP8025 TQFP BLDC Motor Driver Evaluation Board (part # ADM00600), which is available now for $149.99.

Microchip Technology Inc. Expands Low-Cost 8-Bit PIC(R) Microcontroller Portfolio

Microchip Technology Inc. announced a new addition to its PIC12/16LF155X 8-bit microcontroller (MCU) family with the PIC16LF1554 and PIC16LF1559 (PIC16LF1554/9) devices. The PIC16LF1554/9 includes two independent 10-bit 100K samples per second Analog-to-Digital Converters (ADC) with hardware Capacitive Voltage Divider (CVD) support for capacitive-touch sensing. This unique ADC configuration enables more efficient sensor acquisition and assists with advanced touch-sensing techniques for extremely noisy environments, low-power applications, matrix keypads and water-resistant designs. The 14- and 20-pin PIC16LF1554/9 MCUs combine up to 17 ADC channels with automated hardware CVD modules to implement capacitive sensing and other front-end sampling applications with minimal software overhead. These devices also include up to 14 KB Flash/512 Bytes RAM, a 32 MHz internal oscillator, two PWM modules, along with I(2) C(TM), SPI and EUSART for communications. Additionally, they are eXtreme Low Power (XLP) compliant with active and sleep currents of 35 uA/MHz and 30 nA, respectively, for applications where energy conservation is paramount. These features, combined with the low cost and small footprint of the PIC16LF1554/9, make it well suited for a wide range of applications in the consumer-electronic (examples, remote controls, audio players, cell phone accessories, small appliances, wearable devices such as headphones, watches and fitness wristbands), medical (e.g., blood-pressure monitors and wearable heart-rate monitors), automotive markets (e.g., automotive interior controls and control panels) and industrial markets (examples, RFID and sensors), among others.

Microchip Technology Inc. Amends and Restates its Bylaws

On August 25, 2014, the board of directors of Microchip Technology Inc. approved the amendment and restatement of the company's bylaws to reduce the authorized number of directors from six to five, reflect current provisions of delaware law related to telephonic meetings of stockholders, written board consents being effective at a future date and use of electronic transmission, update the information requirements for stockholder proposals and board nominations andmake certain other conforming changes.
