You can efficiently implement an analog control loop with a PIC® microcontroller (MCU) that features the most recent set of Core Independent Peripheral (CIP) blocks that are optimized for power conversion applications. These MCUs implement a hybrid approach to power control by combining the flexibility of analog and digital peripherals that can be configured at runtime to enable the MCU to control a variety of topologies. To provide you with the maximum flexibility in selecting power and voltages, these CIP hybrid power controllers do not include integrated FET drivers.
Since CIPs are designed to operate independently from the core, they free up the Central Processing Unit (CPU) to perform communication and coordination tasks. A single controller can manage up to four independent power conversion stages. This solution is excellent for managing smart solid state lighting, advanced dimming for automotive and building automation, battery charging, multistage power sequencing and smart power applications for the Internet of Things.
