8-bit MCUs

PIC® and AVR® 8-bit microcontrollers allow developers of all skill levels to easily bring their ideas to life. The combination of easily customizable peripherals and the industry’s most code-efficient architectures enable you to bring multiple functions to a single chip with minimal programming.

  • Easiest entry point for MCU development
  • Architected for real-time control applications
  • Fully-compatible device family members allow increases in functionality without extensive redesigns

16-bit MCUs

PIC24 microcontrollers are ideal for applications which have outgrown the performance or memory capabilities of an 8-bit MCU and benefit from staying within a common ecosystem. Our dsPIC® digital signal controllers add DSP performance for time-critical control loops.

  • Simplicity of an MCU with the performance of a DSP
  • Precision motor control with sensorless field-oriented control
  • Efficient digital power conversion with power factor correction
  • Robust functional safety for safety-critical applications

32-bit MCUs

Our 32-bit microcontrollers provide the performance and functional capabilities to meet design needs across a wide variety of applications.

  • Low-power, high-performance MCUs to run multi-threaded applications
  • Hardware-based touch and graphics capabilities for HMI applications
  • Security capabilities include secure boot, secure firmware upgrade, hardware isolation, key protection and more
  • Highly-integrated connectivity: CAN-FD / CAN, Hi-Speed USB, Ethernet
  • Broad portfolio provides scalability to easily meet changing market requirements

Microprocessors are a natural next step for those who have outgrown the performance capabilities of an MCU, need extra memory or who would like to run Linux® on their application.

  • Accessible MPU development, regardless of experience with SoM, SiP and IC options
  • Scalable security solutions from basic secured communications and storage to the implementation of a secure enclave
  • Hardware-based touch and graphics capabilities for HMI applications
  • Support for bare metal, RTOS and Linux with peripheral driver support
