Peripheral Integration to Enable Functions
The PIC16F18346 products feature a high level of core independent peripherals that can be combined to perform a wide variety of functions without the core. The integration of peripherals brings a new level of interconnection that enables unsurpassed flexibility in creating functions for a wide range of applications, including consumer electronics, Internet of Things (IoT) and wearable technology applications. These products also include new power-conserving functionality, including Idle/Doze operating modes and Peripheral Module Disable (PMD), in addition to eXtreme Low Power (XLP) technology.
Easy Complementary Output Generation
Any of the 10-bit Pulse Width Modulations (PWMs) or Capture/Compare/PWMs (CCP) can be combined with the Complementary Waveform Generator (CWG) which enables automated complementary output control with control of dead-band and auto-shutdown modes. Once configured, the complementary outputs run completely independent of the core, allowing the core to perform other tasks.
The onboard 10-bit ADC, 5-bit DAC, internal voltage references and comparators can be connected internally to create closed-loop feedback without requiring pins or PCB space or can be used for other functions within the applications. The versatile 10-bit ADC can be used to implement buttons or sliders using Microchip's mTouch® Capacitive Sensing solution.
Increased Low-Power Functionality
New Idle and Doze low-power modes allow applications to optimize device performance and power consumption.
