8-bit Development Tools
8-bit PIC® and AVR® Microcontrollers
PIC® and AVR® microcontrollers allow developers of all skill levels to easily bring their ideas to life. Our broad portfolio of uniquely configurable MCUs is supported by our award-winning integrated development environments with production-ready code generation tools and best-in-class rapid prototyping hardware. This complete offering of silicon, development environments and industry knowledge enables developers to easily add functionality and robustness to their designs while shortening the overall design cycle. Microchip’s commitment to long-term availability of PIC and AVR MCUs ensures that customers can continue using their existing parts or easily migrate to other fully-compatible device family members to increase functionality without an extensive redesign.
Browse by Application Area
Create low-power, highly-responsive sensor nodes using our intelligent on-chip analog peripherals. These autonomous peripherals improve system response while dramatically reducing overall code footprint, allowing a performance boost with less development effort.
Closed-loop control topologies are at the heart of many embedded applications. Our Core Independent Peripherals enable a level of system response that rivals solutions based on dedicated hardware – in addition to freeing the CPU to perform all other system tasks without any degradation in performance.
Easily create connected devices on any network standard – from single-wire chip-to-chip connections to full CAN, USB and wireless interfaces. Our MCUs support a wide variety of protocols and physical interfaces, giving you the flexibility to innovate.
