Microchip PIC16F18x MCUs Optimized for Sensor Node Applications

    Mouser Electronics, Inc., is now stocking the PIC16F18015/25/44/45 and the PIC16F18126/46 families of microcontrollers from Microchip Technology. Specifically designed for developers requiring an 8-bit microcontroller to accompany their sensor designs, these two families deliver a variety of feature-rich capabilities that support sensor signal conditioning and real-time control functionality at an affordable price.

    For the more cost-sensitive sensor and control applications, the PIC16F18015/25/44/45 microcontrollers provide a balance of flash memory (ranging from 7 KBytes to 14 Kbytes), robust control and peripheral capabilities, and speeds up to 32 MHz. All devices in this family include up to 256 bytes of EEPROM, a 10-bit analog-to-digital converter with computation (ADCC), automated capacitive voltage divider (CVD) techniques for advanced capacitive touch sensing, an 8-bit digital-to-analog converter (DAC) module, three PWMs with two additional capture/compare PWMs, and a complementary waveform generator (CWG). Also included are four configurable logic cells for further control functionality and a healthy array of communication peripherals.

    By contrast, the PIC16F18126/46 microcontrollers, though similar in memory and operating speed to the PIC16F180xx family, provides a feature set geared more toward higher-end sensor applications requiring additional digital functionality, higher resolution and precision timing. Features in this family include 28 KBytes of program flash memory, a 12-bit differential ADCC, two 8-bit DACs, a 16-bit PWM peripheral and a CWG. This family of devices also provides four configurable logic cells for further control functionality and various communication peripherals.
