Design a fast, reliable real-time control system tailored to your application with the newest members of the PIC18-Q10 product family. You can use the Configurable Logic Cells (CLCs) available on the 28-pin PIC18F26Q10 and PIC18F27Q10 MCUs and 40-pin PIC18F45Q10, PIC18F46Q10 and PIC18F47Q10 MCUs to create custom hardware-based logic functions. All devices in this family contain integrated Intelligent Analog, configurable peripherals and 5V operation for increased noise immunity. Each device also includes a full complement of Core Independent Peripherals (CIPs), including Cyclic Redundancy Check/Memory Scan (CRC/Scan), Windowed Watchdog Timer (WWDT) and Hardware Limit Timer (HLT) for use in safety-critical applications, as well as Pulse-Width Modulators (PWMs) and multiple communications interfaces. The Intelligent Analog peripherals include Zero Cross Detect (ZCD), on-chip comparators and an Analog-to-Digital Converter with Computation (ADC2). These MCUs are well suited for a broad range of industrial control, consumer, automotive, capacitive touch sensing and Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
Take your next idea to market with a development board that you can keep in your pocket. With full program and debug capabilities, the PIC18F47Q10 Curiosity Nano Evaluation Kit offers complete support for your next design.
Core Independent Peripherals provide the ability to accomplish tasks in hardware while freeing up the Central Processing Unit (CPU) to do other tasks or go to sleep to save power. This decreases system complexity by eliminating additional code and external components, reduces power consumption, allowing for deterministic response time as well as decreased validation time.
The on-chip intelligent analog peripherals include Zero Cross Detect (ZCD), comparators, a 5-bit Digital-to-Analog Converter (DAC) and a 10-bit ADCC that automates Capacitive Voltage Divider (CVD) techniques for implementing advanced touch sensing, averaging, filtering, oversampling and automatic threshold comparison.
IDLE and DOZE low-power modes allow you to optimize your application for device performance and power consumption. The Peripheral Module Disable (PMD) allows unused peripherals to be turned off individually, further reducing power consumption.
Peripheral Pin Select (PPS) provides ultimate flexibility when routing digital signals to device pins. With PPS, any digital peripheral can be connected to any I/O pin on the fly for a customized layout. This allows you to maintain layout compatibility with older PIC® MCUs, even as new features are implemented.
The CRC/SCAN module and the Windowed Watchdog Timer (WWDT) work in tandem to provide the necessary tools to incorporate functional safety into your application. By ensuring the integrity of the program Flash contents, the devices support the implementation of safety standards such as Class B and UL 1998.
The on-chip Configurable Logic Cell (CLC) peripheral on PIC MCUs and Configurable Custom Logic (CCL) peripheral on AVR MCUs eliminates the need for external components and complicated design work. With these on-chip peripherals, you can apply customized logic without physically expanding your application’s size.
