Microchip's 28-pin MCUs offer a combination of advanced digital and analog peripherals, along with XLP (eXtreme low power) to provide the extended battery life required by many applications. These features make the general-purpose PIC16F1512/13 MCUs ideal for a broad range of applications in the appliance, medical, consumer, and automotive markets, among many others. Along with industry-leading active current down to 30 µA/MHz and sleep current down to 20 nA, these MCUs integrate a 17x10-bit ADC, EUSART, I²C™/SPI, 2x Capture Compare PWMs, up to 7 KB Flash and 256 KB RAM.
Compared to other members of the PIC16F151X family, these two devices deliver increased analog capability, including a 10-bit Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC) with hardware Capacitive Voltage Divider (CVD) support for mTouch™ capacitive touch sensing implementation. The additional control logic enables automated touch sampling, which reduces software size and lowers CPU usage. It also provides an automatic control of guard-ring drive and a programmable sample-and-hold capacitance to better match larger touch or proximity sensors.
