Microchip releases PIC32MX1/2 32-bit microcontroller

August 20, 2015 - Microchip releases PIC32MX1/2 32-bit microcontroller with up to 50 MHz/83 DMIPS performance for executing advanced control applications and mTouch capacitive touch sensing.

Additional features include an enhanced 8-bit Parallel Master Port (PMP) for graphics or external memory, a 10-bit, 1 Msps, 13-channel Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC), support for SPI and I2S serial communications interfaces and USB device/host/On-the-Go (OTG) functionality.

MPLAB Harmony software development framework further simplifies designs, by integrating the license, resale and support of Microchip and third-party middleware, drivers, libraries and Real-Time Operating Systems (RTOS). Specifically, Microchip's readily available software packages – including USB stacks and Graphics and Touch libraries – can greatly reduce the development time of applications such as consumer, industrial and general-purpose embedded control.

Designers seeking to launch consumer products with capacitive touch screens, touch buttons or sliders, as well as USB device/host/OTG connectivity, can benefit from the functionality of the PIC32MX1/2 series of MCUs. The feature-rich peripherals of these MCUs are also ideal for medical and industrial applications, which also include displays with touch-sensing capabilities, along with general-purpose embedded control and connectivity capabilities.

PIC32MX1/MX2 series is supported by free MPLAB X Integrated Development Environment (IDE)and MPLAB XC32 Compiler for PIC32. The MPLAB ICD 3 In-Circuit Debugger (part # DV164035) and MPLAB REAL ICE In-Circuit Emulation System (part # DV244005) are also available. Additionally, the following development board plug-in module supports this series: PIC32MX270F256D Plug-in-Module for Explorer 16 Development Board (part # MA320014).
