Here are some examples of how our low-power microcontrollers can take your applications to bigger and better places.

Portable Medical Devices

The pace of innovation in wearable and portable electronic devices is nothing short of revolutionary. Our products and experience have helped hundreds of the world’s top medical device companies take their ideas from future vision to market reality.

  • Low-power MCUs enable long battery life and small form factor for ease of use
  • Human interfaces with capacitive touch sensing or touch screens
  • Integrated LCD drivers for segmented or graphical displays
  • Operate from a single cell battery with MCP1640 and other switching regulators
  • Ideal for fitness monitors, glucose meters, blood pressure meters (sphygmomanometer), ECG/EKG machines, oxygen concentrators, digital thermometers, CPAPs, pulse oximeters

Thermostats

Take advantage of the flexibility of the PIC® microcontroller platform for a range of thermostats designs, from a low-cost, segmented display to a fully featured graphical display with touch sensing.

Smart Energy

Finding credible partners and solutions for your smart energy and smart grid applications can be difficult. Whether it's the latest communication protocol, advanced user interface technologies, or finding the most advanced low power products, we are here to partner with you to make your applications successful.

Wireless

We offer a variety of cost-effective, easy-to-implement wireless solutions. We offer transmitter, receiver, and transceiver solutions for IEEE 802.15.4/Zigbee®, ISM band sub-GHz, Bluetooth, and IEEE 802.11. These solutions can be combined with our microcontrollers, analog, and memory products to provide a complete wireless solution for your IoT or cloud-connected application.

Smoke Detectors

We offer a family of low-power ionization and photoelectric smoke detector ICs for smoke detector and security applications. Our ionization and photoelectric smoke detector ICs provide all the components necessary for ionization or photoelectric type smoke detectors.

USB

Universal Serial Bus is a bus standard for serial communication. Originally intended as a replacement for serial and parallel connections on a PC to connect mice, keyboards and printers, it has grown to be the standard interface between a PC and its many and varied peripherals.

  • Low-power MCUs with integrated USB device, host and OTG
  • Use free USB software libraries and demo code or pair any low-power MCU with the MCP2200 USB-to-UART serial converter
  • Extend the battery life for products that use USB for data upload/download
  • Ideal for audio accessories, data loggers, portable handheld devices and tracking equipment
