PIC24F ‘GC’ Family of Microcontrollers

Advanced Analog | Low Power | Segment LCD | USB Connectivity

The PIC24F ‘GC’ family of microcontrollers (MCUs) offers high analog integration which features a 16-bit sigma-delta Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC), a 12/10-bit pipeline ADC, a 10-bit,1 Msps digital-to-analog converter (DAC), dual op amps, comparators, voltage references, and an analog interconnect switch. Due to its high analog integration, the PIC24 ‘GC’ family provides great design advantages that include faster data paths, reduced noise and the ability to change the analog parameters in software, all of which help to simplify board designs, provide significant cost reduction over a multi-chip implementation and result in smaller PCB sizes and faster time to market.

The PIC24 ‘GC’ family also features Microchip's eXtreme Low Power (XLP) technology, with power consumptions down to only 18 nA in Sleep mode and 180 µA/MHz when running. These devices also boast integrated USB, LCD driving and touch sensing capabilities. All of these attributes make PIC24F GC devices ideal for portable medical and industrial applications.

Key Features of the PIC24F ‘GC’ Family

Key Feature Description
Advanced Analog 12-bit, up to 50-channel, high-speed, pipeline Analog-to-Digital Converter (ACD), 16-Bit Sigma-Delta Analog-to-Digital Converter (A/D) and two 10-Bit Digital-to-Analog Converters (DAC).
Full Speed USB On-The-Go (OTG) compliant, dual-role capable; can act as either host or peripheral.
Low Power Features eXtreme Low Power (XLP) technology with sleep currents as low as 7 5nA with flexible wake-up sources and run currents down to 210 μA / MHz, enabling power-efficient applications.
