PIC16(L)F15386 Product Family

Highly Integrated 8-bit MCUs with Analog and Low Power

The PIC16(L)F15386 8-bit product family is our next generation evolution of cost-effective microcontrollers. They feature essential peripherals like Intelligent Analog, Core Independent Peripherals (CIPs) and communication combined with eXtreme Low-Power (XLP) technology. The MCUs have up to 28 KB of Flash and 2 KB of RAM. The family features PWMs, multiple communications interfaces, a temperature sensor; along with memory features like Memory Access Partition (MAP) and Device Information Area (DIA). 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). PIC16(L)F15386 products will be offered in a broad range of pin counts from 8-48 pins, to support you in a wide range of general purpose and low power applications.

Enhanced System Features

Memory Access Partition (MAP) supports customers in data protection and bootloader applications. Device Information Area (DIA) is a dedicated memory space for factory programmed device ID and peripheral calibration values.

Development Made Easy

The PIC16(L)F15386 family will be supported by MPLAB® Code Configurator(MCC), a free software plug-in that provides a graphical interface to configure peripherals and functions specific to your application. MCC is incorporated into our award-winning development environments, the downloadable MPLAB X IDE and the cloud-based MPLAB Xpress IDE.

Building Blocks for Function Enablement

Analog to Digital Converter with Computation (ADC2)
The Analog to Digital Converter with Computation (ADC2) helps accelerate common math tasks normally done in software by offering modes like averaging, low-pass filter, oversampling and threshold comparison.
Zero Cross Detect (ZCD)
The Zero Cross Detect (ZCD) module can monitor AC line voltage, and indicate zero crossing activity. This information is made directly available to on-board Waveform Generation peripherals for use in TRIAC control applications, greatly reducing both CPU demand and BOM cost.
10-bit PWM
The 10-bit PWM provides edge-aligned output, which can be used with the Complementary Waveform Generator.
Complementary Waveform Generator (CWG)
Complementary Waveform Generator (CWG) provides a complementary waveform with rising and falling edge dead band control, enabling high efficiency synchronous switching, with no processor overhead. The CWG also incorporates auto shutdown, auto restart, and can interface directly with other peripherals / external inputs.
Numerically Controlled Oscillator (NCO)
Numerically Controlled Oscillator (NCO) is a precision linear frequency generator with fine step resolution. It provides high-resolution oscillator capabilities to control applications such as lighting ballast, radio and tone generator.
Hardware Limit Timer (HLT)
The Hardware Limit Timer (HLT) can detect faults in motors, power supplies, and other external devices. It can automatically notify the system to make provisions to shut down and/or safely restart.
Configurable Logic Cell (CLC)
The Configurable Logic Cell (CLC) offers hardware-based combinational and sequential logic functions to simplify and accelerate many common tasks. The CLC can also be used as “glue” logic between peripherals, eliminating the need for CPU intervention during steady-state activity in complex control loops.
CRC/SCAN module and the Windowed Watchdog Timer (WWDT)
The CRC/SCAN module and the Windowed Watchdog Timer (WWDT) work in tandem to provide engineers with the tools necessary to incorporate functional safety into their application. By ensuring the integrity of the program FLASH contents, PIC18F "K42" devices support the implementation of safety standards such as Class B and UL 1998.
Peripheral Pin Select (PPS)
Peripheral Pin Select (PPS) provides ultimate flexibility when routing digital signals to device pins. With PPS, any digital peripheral can be connected to any I/O pin on-the-fly for a customized layout. This allows users to maintain layout compatibility with older PIC® MCUs, even as new features are implemented.
Advanced Memory Features
Memory Access Partition (MAP) supports customers in data protection and bootloader applications. Device Information Area (DIA) is a dedicated memory space for factory programmed device ID and peripheral calibration values.
Power Conserving Functionality
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 reducing power consumption. PIC18F "K42" devices feature the industry leading eXtreme Lower Power (XLP) technology.
