Microchip’s 8-bit LCD MCUs


This March, Microchip Technology has expanded its range of 8-bit segmented LCD microcontrollers (MCUs) with five new devices—the PIC16LF1902/3/4/6/7 (PIC16LF190X) MCUs.

Features and USP: The PIC16LF190X family supports general applications and enables the implementation of LCDs into low power and cost sensitive designs such as security tokens, smart cards, medical devices, home appliances, key fobs or any application involving a segmented LCD. It features extreme low power (XLP) technology for sleep currents down to 20 nA, and a typical active current of 35 microamperes per MHz. The MCUs can extend battery life while maintaining accurate timing with an RTC and while driving a segmented LCD. These MCUs can also provide an optimised feature set, including up to 14 KB of Flash programmable memory, up to 512 bytes of RAM, up to 14 10-bit analogue-to-digital converter channels, serial communication, temperature indicator and has the capability to drive up to 116 LCD segments. It is priced at US$ 0.75 each in 10,000 unit quantities.
