Chandler, Ariz. — Microchip's low-pin-count digital signal controllers (DSC) now offer up to 32 Kbytes of Flash. The company is rolling out three new dsPIC33FJ32GP general-purpose DSCs and three new dsPIC33FJ32MC motor control/power conversion DSCs.
The dsPIC33FJ32GP DSCs feature 16 or 32 Kbytes of Flash memory and 40 MIPS of performance. The devices also feature a 1.1 Msps ADC and serial interfaces such as I2C, SPI and UART.
In addition to these features, the dsPIC33FJ32MC DSCs offer a PWM with two independent clock sources. This PWM is designed for motor control, inverter algorithms, active power factor correction, power-conversion, and lighting applications. The dsPIC33FJ32MC parts also include a quadrature encoder interface for sensor-based motor applications.
The new devices are available today with prices starting at $2.47 in 10,000-unit quantities. The devices are available in 28- or 44-pin 6x6 mm packages. For additional information, see www.microchip.com/16bit.
