Microchip announces a new family of 8-bit microcontrollers featuring next-generation analogue and digital peripherals, making them ideal for general-purpose applications, as well as battery charging, LED lighting, ballast-control, power-conversion and system-control applications.
The PIC12F(HV)752 MCUs feature an integrated Complementary Output Generator peripheral that provides non-overlapping, complementary waveforms for inputs such as comparators and Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) peripherals, while enabling dead-band control, auto shutdown, auto reset, phase control and blanking control.
Additionally, the new MCUs feature 1.75 KB of self read-write programme memory, 64B of RAM, an on-chip 10-bit ADC, Capture-Compare PWM modules, high-performance comparators down to 40 ns response, and two 50 mA-capable I/Os, enabling engineers to increase overall system capabilities and reduce costs.
Based on Microchip's mature 8-bit core providing POR, BOR, Interrupts and WDT to enable highly efficient circuits.
Self Read-Write Flash Program Memory
Serves as a low cost alternative to Data EE. This is very useful when an application requires remote updates, or needs to store system data or look up tables.
The 4 channel, 10-bit ADC can be used to implement various sensors and mTouch™ applications. Fast 20 ns comparators can be used to implement efficient switching circuits.
Complementary Waveform Generator
Provides non-overlapping complementary waveform for various inputs like comparators, PWM; while affording enhanced features like dead band control, auto shutdown, auto reset, phase control and blanking control.
Digital to Analog Converter
The true 5-bit DAC offers the flexibility of output voltage range selection. The VDD or the external VREF pin can act as the reference to the circuit.
Capture Compare and PWM
This module can be utilized to implement variety of motor control and lighting applications.
High Voltage VDD Support
Allows for connection to an application that has high voltage rails, without the need of an external regulator. It promotes component cost and board area savings.
