Microchip Technology Introduces World’s Lowest Sleep Current, Smallest Packaged 16-bit MCUs With USB and Touch Sensing
23-Nov-2009
Microchip Technology Inc today announced two new families of 16-bit PIC24F microcontrollers (MCUs)-one with USB functionality and one for general-purpose applications-both of which feature nanoWatt XLP extreme low power technology, small packages and mTouch™ capacitive touch sensing. Microchip’s nanoWatt XLP technology provides the world’s lowest sleep currents, with current consumption down to 20 nA in Deep Sleep mode, resulting in the lowest power consumption of any MCU with USB OTG-10 times lower than USB MCUs from other ultra-low-power manufacturers.

New PIC32 32-bit MCU Families With Ethernet, CAN, USB and 128 KB RAM Extend Portfolio via High-Performance Connectivity
23-Nov-2009
Microchip Technology Inc unveils three new 32-bit PIC32 families. Memory up to 128 Kbytes of RAM and extensive connectivity options, including 10/100 Mbps Ethernet, two CAN2.0b controllers, USB Host, Device and OTG, and 6 UART, 5 I2C™ and 4 SPI ports. These new MCU families are complemented by Microchip’s free software stacks, available in source-code form, making it easier for embedded designers to add connectivity to their applications.

Example applications for the new PIC32MX5/6/7 families include: Communications (point-of-sale terminals, Web servers, CAN-to-Ethernet-to-USB bridges); Industrial/Medical (automation, controllers, medical devices, security monitoring); Consumer/Appliance (audio, MP3 decoders, displays, small appliances, fitness equipment); Automotive (aftermarket, car alarms, GPS).

PIC32 Ethernet Starter Kit (part # DM320004
PIC32 USB Starter Kit II (part # DM320003-2
PIM for development with the new PIC32MX5/6/7 families (part # MA320003)

New LPC1100 Flash microcontroller family starting at 65 cents
18-NOV-2009

NXP’s LPC1100 (ARM® Cortex™-M0) is the lowest-priced 32-bit MCU solution in the market, bringing higher value and ease of use than existing 8/16-bit microcontroller through unprecedented performance, simplicity, low power, and more importantly, dramatic reductions in code size for all 8/16-bit applications.

The LPC1100 family is supported by development tools from IAR, Keil, Hitex, Code Red, and many others. NXP will also offer an easy to use, comprehensive development tool platform for under US$30.
