Microchip Technology Inc. Introduces New Series of 32-Bit PIC32 Microcontrollers

Microchip Technology Inc. has introduced a new series of its high pin count 32-bit PIC32 microcontrollers, or MCUs. With up to 83 DMIPS performance and large, scalable memory options from 64/8 KB to 512/64 KB Flash/RAM, these new PIC32MX1/2/5 MCUs are ideal for executing the Bluetooth audio software required for low-cost Bluetooth audio applications, such as speakers, consumer music-player docks, noise-cancelling headsets and clock radios. Flexible, easy-to-use CAN2.0B controllers are also integrated into these MCUs, with DeviceNet addressing support and programmable bit rates up to 1 Mbps, along with system RAM for storing up to 1024 messages in 32 buffers. This feature allows designers to easily employ CAN communication schemes for industrial and automotive applications. The new series boasts a wide variety of additional features, including four SPI/I2S interfaces for audio processing and playback, a Parallel Master Port (PMP) and capacitive touch sensing hardware for graphics and ouch-sensing interfaces; a 10-bit, 1 Msps, 48-channel Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC); as well as a full-speed USB 2.0 Device/Host/OTG peripheral. To maximize data throughput, each MCU includes four general-purpose direct memory access controllers (DMAs) and two dedicated DMAs on each CAN and USB module. In addition to their rich mix of integrated hardware peripheral features, these MCUs are supported by Microchip's powerful MPLAB Harmony software development framework, which simplifies the software development process by integrating the license, resale and support of Microchip and third-party middleware, drivers, libraries and real time operating systems (RTOSs). Specifically, Microchip's readily available software packages, such as Bluetooth audio development suites, Bluetooth Serial Port Profile library, audio equalizer filter libraries, various Decoders (including AAC, MP3, WMA and SBC), sample-rate conversion libraries, CAN2.0B PLIBs, USB stacks, and graphics libraries can rapidly reduce the development time of applications, including Bluetooth connectivity, digital audio, consumer, industrial, medical and general-purpose embedded control.

Microchip Technology Inc. Announces Two Families of New High-Speed A/D Converters in the MCP37DX1-200 and MCP372X1-200 Families

Microchip Technology Inc. announced two families of new high-speed A/D converters in the MCP37DX1-200 and MCP372X1-200 families. These families feature 12-, 14- and 16-bit pipelined A/D converters with a maximum sampling rate of 200 Mega samples per second (Msps). The 14- and 16-bit devices feature high accuracy of over 74 dB Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) and over 90 dB Spurious Free Dynamic Range (SFDR), while the 12-bit devices have 71.3 dB SNR and 90 dB SFDR. This enables high-precision measurements of fast input signals. These families operate at very low-power consumption of 490 mW at 200 Msps including LVDS digital I/O. Lower power-saving modes are available at 80 mW for standby and 33 mW for shutdown. The MCP37DX1-200 and MCP372X1-200 include various digital processing features that simplify system design, cost and power usage for designers. These families also include decimation filters for improved SNR, individual phase, offset and gain adjustment and a fractional delay recovery for time-delay corrections in multi-channel modes. Data is available through the serial DDR LVDS or parallel CMOS interface and configured via SPI. An integrated digital down-converter is included in the MCP37DX1-200 family making it ideal for communications applications. The 12-bit families include an integrated noise-shaping requantizer, which enables users to lower the noise within a given band of interest for improved accuracy and performance. These families are targeted for applications in the communications markets such as base stations, test equipment, and IF receivers, among others. The MCP37DX1-200 and MCP372X1-200 families are available now for sampling and volume production in 124-lead VTLA packages, at prices ranging from $29.58 to $96.07 each, in 5,000-unit quantities.

Microchip Technology Inc. Unveils new MCP3919 and MCP3912 AFEs

Microchip Technology Inc. announced the completion of its 1-8 channel, single and poly-phase MCP391X energy-measurement Analog Front End, or AFE, family with the introduction of the new MCP3919 and MCP3912. The new MCP3919 and MCP3912 members integrate three and four channels of 24-bit, delta-sigma Analog-to-Digital Conversion (ADC), respectively, with accuracy of 93.5 dB SINAD, -107 dB THD and 112 dB SFDR for precise signal acquisition and higher-performing end products. These are the optimal numbers of channels for single-phase energy meters with neutral monitoring (3-channel); or single-phase, three-wire energy meters (4-channel). The high level of integration on the new AFEs also includes a low-drift voltage reference, programmable gain amplifiers, phase-delay compensation and cyclic redundancy check (CRC). As the energy-metering infrastructure is being upgraded worldwide, designers are demanding increased AFE accuracy and integration to develop the latest generation of smart meters. These features are also required by the designers of advanced power-monitoring systems for applications such as server power supplies and power distribution units, electronic circuit breakers, smart power strips and other data-acquisition products in the industrial, commercial and consumer markets. Microchip's newest AFEs improve application performance with their accuracy, high integration and optimal number of channels for single-phase energy measurement. Additionally, the high AFE accuracy facilitates energy-meter calibration, which reduces production costs.
