The BFMP is a simple In-Circuit Serial Programming (ICSP) programmer intended to be used with any of Microchip's new baseline Flash PIC 8-bit microcontrollers.
By developing close partnerships with its customers, the company has not only secured numerous wins for its growing line of replacement microcontrollers, but it has now launched its own family of industrial microcontrollers - specifically designed to solve problems typically overlooked by other semiconductor manufacturers.
Logic Control: Traditional standard logic and timing components, such as delays, smart gates, signal conditioning, simple state machines, encoders/decoders, I/O expanders and small peripheral logic functions can now be cost effectively integrated into a 6-pin microcontroller.
Key features for the PIC16F616/610 and PIC12F615/609 microcontrollers, and their HV variants, include:
Atmel's AT91 family of ARM7 and ARM9 core-based microcontrollers offers a flexible configuration of on- and off-chip memories together with an extensive set of peripherals for control, communication and data storage purposes.
Our longstanding relationship with Microchip Technology has been beneficial to both parties, and we are proud to be the recipient of their five billionth PIC microcontroller," said Yonghua Lu, president of the Linyang Group.
Microchip's broad portfolio of low pin count 8-bit PIC microcontrollers targets a wide range of general-purpose, horizontal applications, and the PIC16F88X family is no exception.
Microchip's 8-bit PIC microcontrollers feature a powerful architecture, flexible memory technologies, comprehensive easy-to-use development tools, extensive application notes, complete technical documentation and post design-in support through a worldwide sales and distribution network.
The PIC18F4523/4423/2523/2423 microcontrollers are available now for general sampling at http://sample.
The company has established a world-class reputation for solving obsolescence problems by developing microcontrollers and peripheral ICs that are 100 percent compatible with an original manufacturer's part in response to an End of Life notice.
Our broad portfolio of compatible 8-bit microcontrollers allows customers to pinpoint the exact mix of performance and peripherals that will meet their cost and design requirements," said Mitch Obolsky, vice president of Microchip's Advanced Microcontroller Architecture Division.
Due to Microchip's integration of its PIC18 high-end 8-bit microcontroller with a complete Ethernet controller, including MAC, PHY and transmit/receive RAM buffer, designers can now have network connectivity in 64- to 100-pin packages that is one of the most cost effective and easiest to use Ethernet solutions.
