eXtreme Low Power PIC24 with Crypto and RN4020 Bluetooth LE Module
At GE Intelligent Platforms, we understand that one of the greatest challenges involved in developing cutting edge defense systems is keeping advanced electronics cool.
8-bit MCU runs inductive cooktop demo. Microchip's Greg Robinson, 8-bit MCU director, shows Extension Media's Chris A. Ciufo the new PIC16F170X/171X in a "smart" kitchen. This device not only takes the heat...it controls it!
8-bit MCUs just keep getting better and more integrated. Extension Media's Chris A. Ciufo interviews Microchip's 8-bit MCU guru Greg Robinson. Among the new "intelligent analog" PIC16F170X/171X family's best features: two internal Op Amps and Zero Cross Detect--both analog features reduce board space and BOM cost. 10-bit ADC and 8-bit DACs plus a programmable pin crossbar make these 8-bangers some of the most innovative in the market.
