8-bit MCUs with High-Resolution Analog and Low Power
The PIC16F18446 8-bit product family features high resolution, Intelligent Analog and Core Independent Peripherals (CIPs) for sensor end node applications. The family features 12-bit ADC with Computation (ADC2), PWMs, multiple communication interfaces, a temperature sensor and memory features like Memory Access Partition (MAP) and Device Information Area (DIA). The MCUs have up to 28 KB of Flash and 2 KB of RAM. The MCUs also have power saving and system flexibility features such as CPU IDLE/DOZE modes, Peripheral Module Disable (PMD) and Peripheral Pin Select (PPS). The PIC16F18446 products will be offered in 14-28 pins to support customers in a broad range of applications, including IoT sensor end nodes, motor control, industrial processing control, medical, home appliances, touch sensing and automotive systems.
This family of products offer intelligent analog peripherals including Zero Cross Detect (ZCD), on-chip comparator and a 12-bit ADC2, automating Capacitive Voltage Divider (CVD) techniques for advanced touch sensing, averaging, filtering, oversampling and threshold comparison.
Enhanced System Features
Memory Access Partition (MAP) is a customizable Flash block with bootloader write protection. Device Information Area (DIA) is a dedicated memory space for factory programmed device ID and peripheral calibration values.
