Two New PIC Families with Core-Independent Peripherals

Looking for an 8-bit microcontroller for an IoT application? Microchip Technology announced from ESC 2015 Silicon Valley two new 8-bit families that expand its growing portfolio of PIC microcontrollers with Core-Independent Peripherals (CIPs).

The PIC16F1579 and PIC16F18877 8-bit MCU families provide you with with a variety of intelligent options in low pin count packages and a wide operating voltage range.Microchip PIC16F157X

Both families offer the Peripheral Pin Select feature for flexible pin mapping and PCB routing to minimize EMI and crosstalk. Intended applications include consumer electronics, the Internet of Things (IoT), wearable technology and safety-critical systems.

The Curiosity Development Board costs $20. Pricing for the PICs starts at $0.51 each in 10,000-unit quantities.
