16-bit PIC24 MCUs and dsPIC® DSCs

mcu16 portfolio circs

16-bit Microcontroller (MCU) Portfolio

Are design costs, performance, low power and smaller packages important considerations for your next design?

PIC24 MCUs offer a variety of peripherals, memory sizes and packaging choices. All 16-bit products have the same instruction set, share peripherals, have common pin-outs and use the same tools for development, allowing you to easily scale if design requirements change. When paired with Microchip’s optimized MPLAB® XC Compilers, PIC24 microcontrollers provide the high throughput and C code density needed to achieve system performance goals and product-launch schedules.
