Family Microchip PIC32MM joined the GPM MCU designed for the IoT, audio, gaming and entertainment devices
Company Microchip Technology has joined the family of 32-bit microcontrollers PIC32MM characterized by very low power consumption, models of the line GPM. According to the manufacturer, the new microcontrollers are well suited for audio, gaming and entertainment devices, as well as for use in sensors of IoT.
The advantages of microcontrollers categories: eXtreme Low Power (XLP), in addition to low power consumption the manufacturer considers the small sizes. From their predecessors microcontrollers XLP PIC32MM GPM inherited peripheral units, independent from the kernel.
Configuration microcontrollers XLP PIC32MM GPM includes up to 256 KB flash with ECC 32 KB of RAM. The line includes devices in case sizes of 4 x 4 mm 28-pin, 5 x 5 mm with 36 conclusions and 6 x 6 mm 48 conclusions.
Wholesale prices for new microcontrollers start at $0,97 per unit. The fee for developers PIC32MM Curiosity USB Development Board (DM320107) costs $28, the plug-in PIC32MM0256GPM064 Processor Plug-in Module (MA320023) — $25, fee Explorer 16/32 Development Board (DM240001-2) — $80.
