Microchip Provides Industry’s Broadest Line of Low-Power, High-Performance 8-bit Microcontrollers with 5V Operation
PIC18F “K22” Family Includes 16 Microcontrollers in 20- to 80-Pin Packages, With 1.8 - 5.5V Operation, Low Sleep and Dynamic Currents, Wide Variety of Peripherals
Microchip Technology recently announced the industry’s broadest line of low-power, high-performance 8-bit microcontrollers (MCUs). The PIC18F “K22” MCUs provide features such as operation from 1.8 to 5.5V, numerous communication channels, 8 to 128 KB Flash memory, and peripherals for mTouch™ capacitive touch-sensing applications. Other features include a 12-bit Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC), multiple PWMs and additional timers. All of the new MCUs feature nanoWatt XLP technology for eXtreme Low Power operation, with industry-leading sleep currents down to 20 nA. Additionally, the MCUs provide a greater than 50% improvement in active current, over previous generations. The feature set of the PIC18F “K22” MCUs allows this family to be used in a wide variety of applications. The 5V capability of the family is ideal for applications that typically require robust operation or noise immunity. Battery-powered applications benefit from nanoWatt XLP technology, which reduces current draw and therefore extends battery life. Example applications include those in the industrial (e.g. metering, electronic door locks, cargo tracking, lighting, alarm systems); appliance (e.g. smart energy, dishwashers, refrigerators, HVAC controls); medical (e.g. diagnostic devices, portable medical meters); and automotive (e.g. lighting, dashboard instrument clusters, keyless entry, interior controls, garage-door openers) markets, among others. Plug-In Modules (PIMs) for the PIC18LF45K22 (part #MA160014, $25) and PIC18F87K22 (part #MA180028, $25) MCUs were also announced. The PIMs can be used with the PIC18 Explorer Board (part #DM183032, $99.99). Designers can also use Microchip‘s complete suite of standard development tools, including the user-friendly and free MPLAB® IDE and corresponding suite of emulators, compilers for PIC18 MCUs. programmers and development boards, along with the MPLAB C18 or HI-TECH C® , The PIC18FXXK22 MCUs are available in PDIP QFN, SOIC, SSOP and TQFP packages of various sizes, in pin counts ranging from 20 to 80. Prices start at $0.60 each in high volume. Samples and volume-production quantities are available, today at www.microchip.com/sample

low offset drift. Let’s take a closer look at these various low offset voltage architectures.4V. From the system level point of view. and hence the EPROM trimmed devices can be somewhat limited in terms of what packages can be offered. mCal Technology provides yet another means of enabling high precision operational amplifiers by implementing an on-board calibration circuit.com/opamp RETURN TO FRONT PAGE www. the self-correcting circuitry is all contained on-chip.microchip. This enables the user to re-calibrate the amplifier as often as they like.com Microcontrollers • Digital Signal Controllers • Analog • Serial EEPROMs 6 . This is done during the final test of the device at the Microchip factory and is a very cost effective way to provide an amplifier with low initial offset voltage. By re-calibrating the amplifier somewhat frequently. the accuracy of the amplifier can become somewhat insensitive to the environment. Much like an EPROM trimmed device. this calibration results in very low initial offset voltages. they can minimize this drift error by re-calibrating the device every time the temperature changes by 5 degrees. if a customer is very concerned about drift over temperature. changes in operating voltage. the device looks and functions just like a standard operational amplifier (only with exceptional performance). These amplifiers use EPROM to correct the input offset voltage of the amplifier. Finally. which provides on-board calibration circuitry. the self-correcting autozeroing technique and the unique mCal Technology. For example. The first architecture mentioned is the EPROM trimmed amplifiers. All amplifiers offer extremely low quiescent current for the given bandwidth and support rail-to-rail outputs. Since this architecture is continuously self-correcting the input offset voltage. it is inherently insensitive to the environment. So changes over temperature. including various architectures that address the need for high precision devices. All of Microchip’s op amps are designed on a low power CMOS process and support operating voltages as low as 1. with almost all products also supporting rail-to-rail operation on the inputs. unlike EPROM trimmed amplifiers. Also. like a general purpose amplifier. so no customer input is required. visit: http://www. the on-board calibration circuitry will be active upon power up or based on an external calibration pin. changes in common mode or operating voltage. auto-zeroing and mCal Technology. This architecture enables ultra low offset error (about 100 times better then an EPROM trimmed amplifier). eliminates 1/f noise and provides superior PSRR and CMRR performance. These architectures include the use of EPROM trimming. For applications that require high precision amplifiers.MICROCHIP TECHNOLOGY’S microSOLUTIONS Monthly E-newsletter .June 2010 Precision Operational Amplifiers: The Right Solution for Your Design Microchip’s op amp portfolio offers over 100 unique products spanning bandwidths from 10 kHz up to 60 MHz. For more information. Microchip offers a variety of low offset voltage amplifiers featuring EPROM trimming. this architecture will be sensitive to environmental conditions such as temperature.microchip. Microchip Technology offers a wide variety of operational amplifiers. aging. the EPROM trimming does take up a certain amount of silicon area. etc will have very little effect on the accuracy of the auto-zero amplifier. As you can imagine. However. The auto-zero architecture is a continuously self-correcting architecture that utilizes a null amplifier to correct the offset voltage of the main amplifier. The other advantage of this architecture is that it does not require any customer inputs (the amplifier is trimmed at the factory and doesn’t require the customer to do anything).
