Status: In Production
The MCP19214 is a dual-channel, mid-voltage (4.5-42V) analog-based PWM controller with an integrated 8-bit PICTM Microcontroller. This unique product family combines the performance of a high-speed analog control solution, including high-efficiency and fast transient response, with the configurability and communication interface of a digital solution. Combining this analog control circuit with integrated digital management features creates a new family of devices that maximizes the strengths of each technology to create a more cost-effective, configurable, high-performance power conversion solution. These products allow the development of flexible power supplies that can be configured perfectly to the target application with minimal external components. In addition, these devices can be programmed to dynamically respond to measurements or events within the system, dynamically tailoring the operation to the environment, or intelligently responding to faults for robust operation.
The MCP19214 has independent voltage and current control, and can be configured for constant voltage or constant current operation on each of the two control loops. Alternatively, the two control loops can operate in opposite directions on the same power train, creating a bi-directional power supply. All of the key operating parameters, including the output level, are dynamically reconfigurable during operation, using the internal microcontroller core. The device features a pair of independent low side drive outputs, for controlling boost, SEPIC, Cuk or flyback topologies.
This device is similar to the MCP19215, but the MCP19215 has four extra I/O pins with integrated debug support.
Fast programming, increased functionality, at the same price as its predecessor, the PICkit™ 3.
The MPLAB PICkit 4 now has Programmer-to-Go functionality for 8-bit, 16-bit and 32-bit PIC MCUs and dsPICs and also SAM MCU devices . The firmware update comes with MPLAB X IDE v5.30. AVR is expected soon!
The MPLAB® PICkit™ 4 In-Circuit
The MPLAB® ICD 4 In-Circuit Debugger/Programmer is Microchip’s fastest, cost-effective debugging and programming tool for PIC® and SAM Microcontrollers (MCUs) and Microprocessors (MPUs), dsPIC® Digital Signal Controllers (DSCs), and CEC flash microcontrollers. This speed is provided by a SAME70 MCU with 300 MHz, 32-bit MCU with 2MB of RAM and a...
The MPLAB® PM3 Universal Device Programmer is easy to use and operates with a PC or as a stand-alone unit, and programs Microchip's entire line of PIC® devices as well as the latest dsPIC® DSC devices. When used standalone, data can be loaded and saved with the SD/MMC card (not included).
The MCP19215 Dual Channel Controller Evaluation Board demonstrates how the MCP19215 device operates in Boost and SEPIC topologies over a wide input voltage and load range. Nearly all operational and control system parameters are programmable by utilizing the integrated PIC controller.
