There is now an increased market demand for temperature measurement capabilities in both medical and fitness devices. Power consumption is one of the major factors in digital thermometer 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 thermometers.
Microchip has what digital thermometer designers need:
- 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.
- Lower cost development with our world-class integrated development ecosystem, MPLAB® X IDE, which encapsulates coding, debugging, software simulation, hardware emulation and device programming in a single interface.
- Lower BOM cost and less design complexity enabled by integration of coherent peripherals, like built-in LCD drive, touch-sensing capability and other associated features in most of our popular MCU families.
- Cost-effective, low-risk options to add wireless connectivity using our wireless controllers and modules.
