In microcontroller (MCU)-based system design, software is often the bottleneck for both time to market and system performance. By offloading many software tasks to hardware, Microchip’s next-generation PIC18-Q43 family is designed to help developers bring higher performing solutions to market faster.

The family’s combination of peripherals offers users versatility and simplicity when creating custom hardware-based functions with easy-to-use development tools. Configurable peripherals are smartly interconnected to allow near zero latency sharing of data, logic inputs or analog signals without additional code for improved system response. The family is suitable for a variety of real-time control and connected applications, including home appliances, security systems, motor and industrial control, lighting and Internet of Things (IoT).

Core Independent Peripherals (CIPs) are peripherals that have been designed with additional capabilities to handle a variety of tasks without the need for intervention from the central processing unit (CPU). With CIPs like timers, simplified pulse width modulation (PWM) output, configurable logic cells (CLCs), analog to digital converter with computation (ADCC), multiple serial communications and more, the family is designed to make it easy for developers to customise their specific design configuration.

The CLC provides programmable logic that operates outside the speed limitations of software execution, providing users with the ability to tailor such things as waveform generation, timing measurements and more. CLCs can be the ‘glue’ logic to connect on-chip peripherals for hardware customisation with ease. Its core-independent communication interfaces, including UART, SPI and I²C, offer flexible, easy-to-use building blocks for developers looking to create a customised device, while the addition of multiple DMA channels and interrupt management accelerate real-time control with simplified software loops.

With Microchip’s comprehensive development tool suite, users can quickly and easily generate application code and customise combinations of CIPs in a graphical user interface (GUI) environment. The family operates up to 5 V, which increases noise immunity and enables users to interface to a wide range of sensors.
