Microchip announces family of 8-bit PIC MCUs and new motion module

Speaker: Lucio Di Jasio and Jeannette Wilson, Microchip

Microchip’s PIC16(L)F1769 family offers up to two independent closed-loop channels.  This is achieved with the addition of the Programmable Ramp Generator, which automates slope and ramp compensation, and increases stability and efficiencies in hybrid power conversion applications.  Microchip’s new MM7150 Motion Module consists of Microchip’s SSC7150 motion coprocessor combined with 9-axis sensors, including accelerometer, magnetometer and gyroscope in a small, easy to use form factor.
