New PIC18 Family Offers a Versatile Array of Core Independent Peripherals to Simplify Complex Designs

The PIC18F “K42” family, which combines an extensive array of Core Independent Peripherals (CIPs), high-resolution analog, on-chip Direct Memory Access (DMA) and vectored interrupts for fast processing, is now available from Microchip Technology Inc. (NASDAQ: MCHP), a leading provider of microcontroller, mixed-signal, analog and Flash-IP solutions. The DMA controller enables data transfers between memory space and peripherals without Core Processing Unit (CPU) involvement, improving system performance and lowering power consumption. When interrupts are required, vectored interrupts provide faster response times with fixed latency reducing software overhead. Code development is also simplified with the user-friendly MPLAB® Code Configurator, making the PIC18F “K42” family well suited for an extensive range of applications and markets, including touch sensing, automotive, industrial control, Internet of Things (IoT), medical and white goods.
