Advanced Analog | Low Power | Segment LCD | USB Connectivity

The PIC24F ‘GC’ family of microcontrollers (MCUs) offers high analog integration which features a 16-bit sigma-delta Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC), a 12/10-bit pipeline ADC, a 10-bit,1 Msps Digital-to-Analog Converter (DAC), dual op amps, comparators, voltage references, and an analog interconnect switch. Due to its high analog integration, the PIC24 ‘GC’ family provides great design advantages that include faster data paths, reduced noise and the ability to change the analog parameters in software, all of which help to simplify board designs, provide significant cost reduction over a multi-chip implementation and result in smaller PCB sizes and faster time to market.

The PIC24 ‘GC’ family also features eXtreme Low Power (XLP) technology, with power consumption down to only 18 nA in sleep mode and 180 µA/MHz when running. These devices also boast integrated USB, LCD driving and touch sensing capabilities. All of these attributes make PIC24F GC devices ideal for portable medical and industrial applications.
