Microchip Technology presents a series of low pin-count, 32-bit PIC32 microcontrollers that provides 83 DMIPS of performance at only 50 MHz with the right mix of peripherals for cost-sensitive general purpose sensing, USB, and audio designs. With up to 128 KB of Flash and 32 KB of RAM, serial interfaces, USB, 1 Msps ADC, analog comparator, and an 8-bit parallel master port (useful for LCD interface), the PIC32MX1 / MX2 is the perfect MCU for a broad range of applications.
Rated for operation up to 105°C, the PIC32MX1 / MX2 MCUs include an integrated hardware peripheral for adding mTouch™ capacitive touch buttons or advanced sensors. The integrated ADC provides up to 1 Msps sample rate with 10-bit resolution and up to 13-channels. Serial communication is enabled via multiple I2C, SPI, and UART interfaces. Digital audio is supported via USB audio class support and two I2S CODEC interfaces. Further easing the design effort is Microchip’s peripheral pin select feature, which allows developers to “remap” most of the chip’s digital-function pins, making peripheral utilization, board layout, and design modifications significantly easier. The PIC32MX1 / MX2 series of MCUs range from 28-pins to 44-pins, with sizes down to 5 mm x 5 mm, and a 0.5 mm pitch.
