16-bit eXtreme Low-Power (XLP) PIC® Microcontrollers

Microchip’s 16-bit PIC® microcontrollers (MCUs) with eXtreme Low Power (XLP) technology, advanced Core Independent Peripherals and cryptographic engine for data security are ideal for battery-powered smart, secure and connected devices. Offering a variety of power saving features, these devices enable you to extend the battery life in your applications.

Benefits of 16-bit XLP MCUs

Low-Power Sleep Modes with Flexible Wake-Up Sources

  • RAM retention sleep mode
  • Sleep current down to 30 nA
  • Deep sleep current down to 10 nA
  • Flexible self-wake-up sources: special low-power Brown-out Reset (BOR), Power-on Reset (POR), Watchdog Timer (WDT), Real-Time Clock/Calendar (RTCC), External Interrupts (INT), Asynchronous Master Clear Reset (MCLR)
  • Wake-up trigger from several peripherals

Flexible and Advanced Integrated Peripherals

  • Core Independent Peripherals (CIPs) to offload the CPU such as Configurable Logic Cell (CLC), Real-Time Clock/Calendar (RTCC), Multiple Capture/Compare Pulse-Width Modulation (MCCP) and Peripheral Trigger Generator (PTG)
  • Integrated USB and LCD driver
  • Rich analog integration including 16-bit Sigma-Delta Analog-to-Digital Converters (ADCs), 12-bit Digital-to-Analog Converter (DAC) and op amps
  • Crypto engine for data security

Long Battery Life with Robust and Reliable Features

  • Enable battery lifetime of 20+ years
  • Low-power supervisors for safer operation (BOR, WDT)
  • Core Independent Peripherals perform complex tasks at lowest possible energy requirement
  • VBAT battery backup powered separately

Large Portfolio and Efficient Performance Across Voltage Range

  • 8–121 pins
  • 4 KB–1 MB Flash
  • Wide selection of packages
  • More than 80% of instructions are single cycle execution
  • Peripherals run autonomously in low-power modes
