The PIC24F32KA304 family expands on the features of the existing PIC24F16KA family by adding twice as much Flash memory and 30% more RAM, which enables better support for wireless communication protocol stacks, says Microchip.

Also the number of timers and PWMs has tripled, while there are also twice as many UART, I2C and SPI channels. The ADC’s resolution is four times greater than the PIC24F16KA family’s, and the pin-count has also increased to 44 pins. The Charge Time Measurement Unit featured in Microchip’s mTouch technology is said to help minimise active power by operating while the core is in sleep mode.

The new family is supported by the Explorer 16 Development Board and samples are now available. For further information, visit
