Microchip Technology Inc., announced the company’s low power and cost-effective family of 32-bit PIC32 microcontrollers (MCUs). The new family is the first PIC32 to feature core independent peripherals, designed to offload the CPU for lower power and lower system design cost. The PIC32MM devices are supported by the Microchip MPLAB Code Configurator (MCC) to help simplify and accelerate designs.

Today’s embedded applications targeting the Internet of Things (IoT), consumer, industrial control, and motor control require flexible MCUs that consume less power, are more cost effective and have smaller form factors. For applications demanding low power and longer battery life, the PIC32MM has sleep modes down to 500 nA. Applications with space constraints will benefit from the small 4×4 mm package options. The PIC32MM devices include core independent peripherals such as Configurable Logic Cells (CLC) and Multiple-output Capture Compare PWMs (MCCPs) which help enable sensor less BLDC motor control applications.

To help accelerate evaluation and development, a new PIC32MM processor plug-in module is available (MA320020), which plugs into the Explorer 16 Development Board (DM240001). The entire family of PIC32MM devices is supported by the Microchip MPLAB ecosystem including MPLAB X IDE and XC32 compiler. The MPLAB Code Configurator, a plug-in to the MPLAB X, helps with easy peripheral set-up, device configuration and pin mapping.

Availability
The PIC32MM family is available in mass production today in 20-pin QFN and SSOP; 28-pin uQFN, QFN, SOIC, SSOP, SPDIP; 36-pin QFN; and 40-pin uQFN packaging. Devices are available in 16 KB, 32 KB, and 64 KB Flash variants.
