microchip technology inc (MCHP) Key Developments

Microchip Introduces New Low-Cost PIC32MX1/2/5 32-bit Microcontroller Series with Feature-Rich Peripheral Mix and Large, Scalable Memory Configuration

Microchip Technology Inc. has announced a new series of its low-cost, high-pin count 32-bit PIC32 microcontrollers (MCUs). By blending the key features of Microchip's existing PICM32MX1/2 and PIC32MX5 MCU families, this latest PIC32MX1/2/5 MCU series delivers designers the benefits of a rich peripheral set for a wide range of cost-sensitive applications that require complex code and higher feature integration at a lower cost. Microchip 32-bit MCUs for Cost-Sensitive Designs 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 1,024 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 touch-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.

Microchip Technology Inc. Releases Fourth Generation JukeBlox Wi-Fi Platform

Microchip Technology Inc. announced the release of its fourth generation JukeBlox platform that enables audio brands to develop high quality, low-latency products such as standalone or multi-room wireless speakers, AV receivers, mini and micro systems, and sound bars. Microchip's new JukeBlox 4 Software Development Kit in combination with its CY920 Wi-Fi & Bluetooth Network Media Module includes next-generation dual-band Wi-Fi technology, MultiZone/multi-room features, AirPlay and DLNA connectivity as well as integrated music services to enhance the consumer's listening experience. Additional cost-saving features lower bill of materials and enable competitively priced consumer products. The certified CY920 Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Network Media Module is based on Microchip's new, low-cost DM920 Wi-Fi Network Media Processor, which integrates 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, high-speed USB 2.0 and Ethernet connectivity. Speakers utilizing the 5 GHz band avoid the RF congestion found in the 2.4GHz band, resulting in fewer audio drops and the ability to use a greater number of speakers in multi-room/whole-home audio systems. The DM920 Wi-Fi Network Media Processor also features integrated dual 300 MHz DSP cores that can reduce or eliminate the need for costly standalone DSP chips. An easy-to-use, PC-based graphical user interface simplifies the use of a pre-developed suite of standard speaker-tuning DSP algorithms, including a 15-band equalizer, multiband dynamic range compression, equalizer presets and various filter types. Engineers with no DSP code-writing experience can easily implement DSP into their designs, while experienced DSP engineers can harness the full power of an industry-standard DSP architecture. With JukeBlox 4, product developers can build solutions equipped to directly stream cloud-based music services such as Spotify Connect, Qobuz, Rhapsody, Deezer and many others while using mobile devices as remote controls. This allows mobile devices to move anywhere in the Wi-Fi network without interrupting music playback, and it greatly increases battery life. JukeBlox technology continues to offer seamless cross-platform support for iOS, Android, Windows 8 and Mac, along with a complete range of audio codecs and ease-of-use features to simplify network setup. Additionally, the SDK has whole-home audio functionality for simultaneous audio streaming to, and control of, multiple JukeBlox platform-enabled devices in the home. The combination of new hardware and software technology improves synchronization and reduces network bandwidth utilization to achieve a robust audio streaming experience. The JukeBlox 4 SDK, paired with the JukeBlox CY920 module, is available immediately for sampling and volume production.

Microchip Technology Seeks Acquisitions

Microchip Technology Inc. (NasdaqGS:MCHP) is seeking acquisitions. Steve Sanghi, President, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of Microchip Technology, said, "We believe we are going to grow more than industry growth to market share gains organically, but we don't still believe that it leads to a double-digit kind of growth that we would be happy with, therefore we must supplement it with an inorganic growth through acquisitions.”
