Automotive 16-bit dsPIC33F/E Digital Signal Microcontrollers

Microchip offers a rich set of high-performance peripherals that integrate seamlessly with customer applications and enable solution with reduced costs and time. The 16-bit family offers key communication and control peripherals like SPI, UART, CAN, I2C, PWM and Timers, as well as specialized peripherals for USB, graphics, motor control and digital power. With intelligent analog peripherals, you can integrate analog functions such as high-performance ADCs, DACs and op amps into your applications providing simple-to-use interfaces that ease analog design. In addition, core independent peripherals such as CLC, PTG and crypto enable higher levels of integration and flexibility.

The motor control (MC) families of 16-bit MCUs and DSCs contain peripherals that ease development in motor control applications. These peripherals include motor control PWM module, precision ADCs and the quadrature encoder interface module.  These families are rated for operation up to 150°C ambient temperatures, making them ideally suited for underhood motor control applications such as cooling fans, water and oil pumps and turbo wastegate actuators.

The dsPIC33 “GS” DSC family is optimized for high performance on advanced algorithms for improved efficiency over widely varying load conditions. These devices feature dedicated peripherals such as fast ADCs and PWMs for digital power conversion applications like 48-to-12V bus balancing as well as exterior LED lighting applications.
