32-bit PIC MCUs add AEC-Q100 automotive temperature options

32-bit PIC MCUs add AEC-Q100 automotive temperature options

New Products |
By Graham Prophet

The PIC32MZ EF family features high core performance up to 250 MHz, an integrated Floating-Point Unit (FPU), a wide selection of peripherals and connectivity options including Controller Area Network (CAN). The Extended temp portfolio is suitable for several critical automotive and industrial applications that require reliable performance and robustness at higher temperatures.


In addition, the industrial temperature portfolio (-40° to 85°C) has been selectively expanded to offer a higher-speed variant (250 MHz/795 CoreMark). The high-speed variant is suitable for applications such as high-resolution audio that require slightly higher core performance to provide faster audio processing and streaming.


In a variety of package options including TQFP, QFN, VTLA, and LQFP, devices in the family are priced starting at $6.00.
