Mouser Electronics has introduced PIC32 family of 32-bit microcontrollers (MCUs) from Microchip Technology Australia .
“Our engineering customers require both rapid introduction of the newest products and technologies, as well as a broad selection of products and suppliers in order to select the best solution for their design projects,” said Mike Scott, Mouser Electronics’ Vice President of Active Products.
“By stocking Microchip’s PIC32 MCUs, and through our innovative marketing programs, we are able to quickly introduce these new devices to our extensive engineering customer base.”
The PIC32 family adds more performance and memory, while maintaining pin, peripheral, and software compatibility with Microchip Technology Australia’s 16-bit PIC MCUs and dsPIC Digital Signal Controllers (DSCs).
To further ease migration and protect tool investments, the PIC32 family is fully supported by Microchip Technology Australia’s free MPLAB Integrated Development Environment (IDE). The MPLAB IDE offers compatibility by supporting Microchip Technology Australia’s portfolio of 8-, 16- and 32-bit devices.
The PIC32 family consists of ten general-purpose devices that operate at up to 80MHz, and offer ample code- and data-space capabilities, with up to 512kB flash and 32kB RAM. The PIC32 family also includes a set of integrated peripherals, significantly reducing total design complexity and cost.
The PIC32 family devices are based on the MIPS32architecture with its combination of high-performance, low power consumption, fast interrupt response, and extensive industry tool support.
The high-performance MIPS32 M4K core can achieve 1.5 DMIPS/MHz operation, due to its efficient instruction-set architecture, 5-stage pipeline, hardware multiply/accumulate unit, and multiple sets of 32 core registers.
To reduce systems costs, the PIC32 MCUs support the MIPS16e 16-bit ISA, enabling code-size reductions of up to 40%.
