Microchip Technology Inc. announced a new addition to the 16-bit PIC® microcontroller (MCU) and dsPIC® Digital Signal Controller (DSC) portfolios with the cost-effective dsPIC33FJ32MC104 family which offers up to 32 KB Flash, 16 MIPS of performance, and small pin outs for cost-sensitive motor control, consumer, medical and industrial applications.
The dsPIC33FJ32MC104 family delivers a low-cost 16-bit solution with powerful peripherals in packages ranging from 18 to 44 pins. Using a dsPIC DSC to digitally control a motor enables several industry-leading features, including greater energy efficiency, sensorless operation and more precise control. The dsPIC33FJ32MC104, with its low-cost and integrated DSP capabilities along with on-chip and advanced motor control peripherals, enables sensorless BLDC motor control in cost-sensitive applications, such as power tools and high-end toys. The dsPIC33FJ32M104 is an excellent solution for customers working on low-cost motor control applications by providing a higher performance with the 16-bit dsPIC core at low cost.
The dsPIC33FJ32MC104 family is supported by Microchip's free MPLAB® X Integrated Development Environment (IDE). The dsPIC33FJ32MC104 also comes with a Plug-In Module (PIM), MA330032 that is designed to demonstrate the capabilities of the dsPIC33FJ32MC104 motor control device using the dsPICDEM™ MCLV-2 Development Board (DM330021-2) and dsPICDEM™ MCHV-2 Development Board (DM330023-2). It is also compatible with the dsPICDEM™ MCLV Development Board (DM330021) and dsPICDEM™ MCHV Development Board (DM330023). Pricing & Availability The dsPIC33FJ32MC101, dsPIC33FJ32GP101 and PIC24FJ32MC101 devices are offered in 20-pin SOIC and PDIP packages. The dsPIC33FJ32MC102, dsPIC33FJ32GP102 and PIC24FJ32MC102 devices are offered in 28-pin SOIC, SSOP, QFN packages, as well as a 36-pin VTLA package. The dsPIC33FJ32MC104, dsPIC33FJ32GP104 and PIC24FJ32MC104 are offered in 44-pin TQFP, VTLA, and QFN packages. All the devices are available today for sampling and volume production, starting at $1.71 each in 10,000-unit quantities.
