Microchip Announces PIC32MX 32-bit Microcontroller Portfolio

Microchip Technology Inc. (NASDAQ: MCHP), a leading provider of microcontroller, mixed-signal, analog and Flash-IP solutions, today announced a new family of PIC32MX3/4 microcontrollers (MCUs) in 64/16 KB, 256/64 KB and 512/128 KB Flash/Ram configurations. These new MCUs are coupled with comprehensive software and tools from Microchip for designs in connectivity, graphics, digital audio and general-purpose embedded control.

The MCUs are an expansion to the popular PIC32MX3/4 series of high-performance 32-bit microcontrollers. They offer higher RAM memory options and higher integration of peripherals at a lower cost. The PIC32MX3/4 feature 28 x 10-bit ADCs and 5 UARTS, 105 DMIPS performance, serial peripherals, graphic-display, capacitive-touch, connectivity and digital audio support.

“More designs in the consumer, appliance, medical and industrial markets are requiring high-quality, low-cost audio, capacitive touch, and graphic display capabilities as well as USB support,” said Sumit Mitra, vice president of Microchip’s MCU32 Division. “This new PIC32MX3/4 family and our complete solutions enable application designers to add all these features, with faster and lower-cost development, while reducing risk.”

Development Support

The PIC32MX3/4 family is supported with a comprehensive set of tools and software. These include general software development tools, such as the MPLAB® X Integrated Development Environment and the MPLAB XC32 C/C++ compiler. Application-specific tools include the Microchip Graphics Display Designer X along with the Microchip Graphics Library, which provide a visual design tool that enables quick and easy creation of graphical user interface (GUI) screens for applications. These MCUs are also supported with a comprehensive set of protocol stacks from Microchip, including TCP/IP, USB Device and Host, Bluetooth®, and Wi-Fi®. For applications in Digital Audio, Microchip provides software for tasks such as sample rate conversion (SRC), audio codecs including MP3 and AAC, as well as software for connecting smart phones and other personal electronic devices.

The PIC32MX3/4 family is supported by Microchip’s PIC32 USB Starter Kit III (Part # DM 320003-3, $59.99) and PIC32MX450 100-pin USB PIM (Part # MA32002-2, $25.00) for the modular Explorer 16 development system.
