Digital Medical Weight Scale


Weight scales have been used for quite a while in homes, businesses and medical facilities. Power consumption is one of the major factors in digital medical weight scale design. The need for extended battery life, along with high precision, fast response time and lower cost is critical. Microchip's PIC® microcontrollers with eXtreme Low Power (XLP) Technology and our wide range of analog components offer extensive flexibility and performance to designers of digital medical weight scales.

Microchip has what digital medical weight scale designers need:

Microchip provides a complete family of eXtreme Low Power (XLP) Technology PIC microcontrollers with sleep currents as low as 9 nA and the flexibility of integrated 8-bit, 10-bit and 12-bit ADCs.

Experience lower development cost with our MPLAB Code Configurator. This is a free graphical programming environment that generates seamless, easy to understand C code that is inserted into your project. Using an intuitive interface it enables and configures a rich set of peripherals and functions. It is integrated into MPLAB X IDE to provide a powerful and easy to use development platform.

Lower BOM cost and less design complexity is enabled by the integration of coherent peripherals, like built-in LCD drive, touch-sensing capability and other associated features in most of our popular MCU families.

Add wireless capability with Microchip's cost-effective and low-risk wireless controllers and modules.
