CHANDLER, Ariz. – Microchip Technology Inc. in Chandler, Ariz., is introducing the PIC18-Q41 and AVR DB microcontrollers for large-scale artificial intelligence (AI) at-the-edge and sensor-based Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
The PIC18-Q41 and AVR DB microcontrollers integrate data conversion to provide analog functionality and digital control capability, and combine advanced analog peripherals and multi-voltage operation with inter-peripheral connections for increased system integration and reduced signal acquisition times.
The PIC18-Q41 microcontroller has a configurable operational amplifier, A/D converter, and D/A converter. It comes in compact 14- and 20-pin packages, and makes a good companion to Microchip's 32-bit microcontrollers and other controllers that require analog integration.
The AVR DB microcontroller simplifies the challenges of mixed-signal IoT systems, often include several power domains, and can reduce costs by integrating true bi-directional level shifters.
This feature lowers cost in applications like automotive, appliances, HVAC, and liquid measurement. The addition of three independent and configurable Op Amps, a 12-bit differential A/D converter, 10-bit D/A converter, three zero cross detectors, and core-independent peripherals makes the AVR DB microcontroller suitable for applications that involve analog signal conditioning and processing functions.
The PIC18-Q41 and AVR DB microcontrollers have support from Microchip's MPLAB X integrated development environment, its MPLAB code configurator, and the MPLAB Mindi analog simulator. MCC is a free software plug-in that provides a graphical interface to configure peripherals and functions specific to an application.
