Does your design need to connect to the analog world? It’s easy to transition your design from using discrete analog components to implementing intelligent control with a microcontroller (MCU). The analog modules available on our PIC® and AVR® MCUs enable you to add features to your design while increasing reliability and reducing costs. These on-board analog modules can use on-chip resources and interface with Core Independent Peripherals (CIPs) for implementing advanced closed-loop control. This tight integration enables more efficient control of many applications, including power conversion and sensor-based systems. You can take advantage of our expertise in analog design to create simple and efficient solutions that are also easy to implement.
The integration of analog peripherals resolves all the noise and latency issues that typically come with using discrete devices. This means you can spend less time debugging and get to market faster.
When you choose one of our MCUs with integrated discrete signal conditioning and measurement functions, you will significantly reduce the amount of board space required to implement your system.
Cutting the number of external components and reducing the size of your PCB footprint will lower the per-unit cost of your design, so you can offer a more feature-rich and cost-effective product.
Our Quick Reference Guides provide a quick overview of the Intelligent Analog, waveform control, logic and math, safety and monitoring, communications, user interface and low-power and system flexibility peripherals available on our families of PIC and AVR MCUs.
