MCC and classical PICs

Hi all,
 
Are there plans about include classical PICs like 16F88 or 16F84A in MCC libraries?
 
If not, can you advice me similar new devices that substitute these old ones? Of course they must be available in MCC.

Regards.

    I don't think there is a plan to support old devices, but there are plenty new devices pin compatible with those old ones, more powerful, more features and cheaper than the old ones and of course supported by MCC.
    You can use Microchip Advanced Part Selector to search for a another PIC which can fulfill your requirements in terms of pins, peripherals, etc.
    You can find out if a PIC is supported by MCC from the release note:  PIC10 / PIC12 / PIC16 / PIC18 MCUs.

    Virtually any current PIC16 has more "muscle" than the venerable 'F8x.
    Even the "normal" product selector @  http://www.microchip.com/...art.aspx?branchID=1012 would help:
    • Select whatever features you need (e.g. using the PIC16F88 as your guide
    • Sort for price in ascending order
    • PIC16s with a 5-digit number should all be supported by MCC - cross-check!

    Even if it was support for these older parts, it wouldn't be a good idea to use them for new designs. They had problems, which were addressed by Microchip over the years. The new PIC16 are much better, and also cheaper. Look for PIC16F1xxxx (where xxxx is any 4 numbers) for the last generation.

    Hi,
    As of now, there is no plan as well to support the device mentioned by you.
    Also, there is no MCC supported device which can substitute 16F84A specifically.
     
    You can use MCC with PIC10F320( low pin count device) as an example to understand on MCC file structure and you can make necessary changes as required to work for 16F84A

    PIC16F1826 is more than a match for the 16f84a

    Can't remember. I've slept since then - Mark
