PIC16-series microcontrollers have been around for many years. Although these are excellent general purpose microcontrollers, they have certain limitations but they are still in market for new and existing Design with limited features.

CERTAIN LIMITATION

The program and data memory capacities are limited,
Small Stack
All interrupt sources sharing the same interrupt vector.

Microchip Inc. has developed the PIC18 series of microcontrollers for use in high-pin count, high-density, and complex applications.
PIC18F devices provide flash program memory in sizes from 8 to 128Kbytes and data memory from 256 to 4Kbytes, The PIC18F microcontrollers offer cost efficient solutions for general purpose applications written in C that use a real-time
operating system (RTOS) and require a complex communication protocol stack such as
TCP/IP,
CAN,
USB,
Zigbee.
