Peripheral Integration to Enable Functions
The PIC16F18877 and PIC16F18346 product families 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 the peripherals, allow for interconnections that bring a new level of interaction between peripherals enabling 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 XLP low-power technology.
Increased Low Power Functionality
New idle and doze low power modes allow applications to optimize device performance and power consumption. The Peripheral Module Disable (PMD) allows unused peripherals to be turned off individually, further lowering power consumption.
Easy Complementary Output Generation
Any of the 10-bit 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.
Integrated Safety and Monitoring
This product family features the Windowed Watchdog timer and Cyclic Redundancy Check with Memory Scan. Together, these hardware-base Core Independent Peripherals provide engineers with the necessary features to easily incorporate safety and system management into their application.
