Microchip's 16-bit devices provide breakthrough performance for
general-purpose and motor-control applications

Microchip PIC24FJ/33FJ MCUs & dsPIC DSCs Microchip announces 16-bit PIC® microcontrollers (MCUs) and dsPIC® Digital Signal Controllers (DSCs) that bring advanced control to cost-sensitive general-purpose and motor-control designs. These devices enable low-cost, sensorless motor-control designs, with support for a wide range of motor-control algorithms, and include an on-chip Charge Time Measurement Unit (CTMU), and 10-bit Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC), to enable intelligent sensor applications, and mTouch™ capacitive touch sensing. The devices are supported by three new Plug-In Modules (PIMs) and a single-board motor-control starter kit that includes cap-touch sliders and an on-board BLDC motor, making it easy for designers to create high-performance applications in the appliance (e.g. washing machines), medical (e.g. infusion pumps) and industrial (e.g. AC-induction motors) markets, among others.
