Simplify your design process with the industry's most capable and easy-to-use 8-bit MCUs. Regardless of your design requirements, we have a product family that will meet your needs. 8-bit PIC® microcontrollers (MCUs) contain Core Independent Peripherals (CIPs) that enable you to create low-power solutions for sensor node, real-time control, connected and other applications. These CIPs offload the Central Processing Unit (CPU), which lowers overall power consumption while also providing deterministic responses. CIPs reduce code size, save development time and provide more memory space for your application.
PIC MCUs are finding their way into new applications such as smartphones, audio accessories, video gaming peripherals and advanced medical devices. We are dedicated to providing microcontroller solutions for a wide variety of performance and functional needs with easy-to-use development tools, complete technical documentation and comprehensive design support through our global sales and distribution network.
