8-bit PIC® MCUs with Core Independent Peripherals

Free your creativity with Microchip's core independent peripherals

8-bit PIC® MCUs withMicrochip PIC Microcontrollers with Core Independent Peripherals take 8-bit MCU performance to a new level. With a number of on-board modules designed to increase capability in any control system, these MCUs represent the best value in embedded design.

Core Independent Peripherals are designed to handle their tasks with no code or supervision from the CPU to maintain operation. As a result, they simplify the implementation of complex control systems and give designers the flexibility to innovate.

Key Attributes:

Self-Sustaining – Once initialized in a system, Core Independent Peripherals can provide steady-state closed-loop embedded control with zero intervention from the MCU’s core. The CPU can then be idled or put into SLEEP mode to save system power.

CPU Free – Core Independent Peripherals are smartly interconnected to allow near-zero latency sharing of data, logic inputs, or analog signals without additional code or interruption of the CPU. This frees the CPU to perform other system tasks and reduces Flash memory consumption.

Significant Savings – By taking the load off the CPU, Core Independent Peripherals allow smaller, lower-power PIC MCUs to perform extremely complex tasks, such as high-power lighting control and communication. In addition, significant BOM cost savings can be realized by replacing off-board discrete components with these integrated peripherals.
