PIC32MZ DA info?

I didn't make it to this years Microchip Masters but I noticed there was a scheduled presentation on the PIC32MZ DA graphics version.  Does anyone have anymore information on this family? 
 
I am very interested in the pinouts as we have a design we are working with and wanted to see if we could make it compatible with this newer version.

You need to contact your local Microchip FAE who should be able to get you the preliminary DA datasheet. If I remember correctly, the release date would be sometime next year. In the class (#19004), we were told this family offers 169-pin, 176-pin and 288-pin packages. So I doubt they will be compatible with EC or EF as far as pinout goes.
 
According to the class presentation, the DA supports internal and external DDR2 SRAM, 3 layers of color blending, and the LCD frame buffering is all done in the hardware. Great potential, worth looking into it.

I am guessing the external DDR2 support requires the extra pins.
 
Good info.  Thanks for posting.

A datasheet went out on the RSS feed last week if you are still interested in looking at it.

324-pin BGA?
 
Do you have a link or a reference?

I haven't seen the data sheet, but reading the published notes from a class covering the new DA chip, it will keep the same core clocks but add some new hardware features:
 
1) 2D GPU (not sure what this means exactly)
2) Dedicated SD card peripheral
3) L1 instruction cache doubled to 32 kB, L1 data cache increased to 32kB (from 4kB?)
4) a 'full' MMU.  Not sure what differences this implies from the current one
 
So, there are some good things in there for graphics and high speed data storage certainly.  Since I generally don't deal with graphics, I'm not too excited by the GPU, or the external memory controller, but the SD card peripheral and expanded caches are very nice looking.  Hopefully they migrate down in to the EF series.

Looks like the biggest package is 288 pins.

Thank you.
 
2D graphics simply means not 3D.

Weird, link works for me. Must still be cached on my end or something. Here it is rehosted.

At last, a VBat pin! Now the RTCC is finally usefull.
And a full SD card interface. As it uses the SQI module I/O, it hopefully can be incorporated into others in the MZ line.
I see that the 2D GPU only accelerates horiz/vert lines and rectangles. No triangles,circles/elipses or round-rects. Only 4 ROP's as well. At least it does text (although until the FRM section is available, we don't know how limited it is). Looks like I will be sticking to the RAiO for a while.

Good catch.  I completely missed that there does not appear to be an FPU in this chip.
