Microchip Technology Inc., Chandler, AZ, has introduced a new series of 16-bit PIC microcontrollers and dsPIC DSCs to bring advanced control to cost-sensitive general-purpose and motor control designs. The devices support a range of motor control algorithms and include an onchip Charge Time Management Unit, 10-bit ADC, and mTouch capacitive sensing. The new series includes the dsPIC33FJ16 GP, dsPIC33FJ16 MC, and PIC24FJ16 MC devices. General-purpose GP devices include a real-time clock/calendar and up to 21 general-purpose output pins. The MC devices include a 6-channel PWM peripheral with synchronized outputs for 3-phase operation.
