The 32-bit PIC32MZ EF microcontroller (MCU) family has been expanded to include an extended temperature portfolio and a high-speed variant (250 MHz) industrial temp portfolio. This is the first automotive-grade PIC32 MCU from Microchip Technology Inc. (NASDAQ: MCHP), a leading provider of microcontroller, mixed-signal, analog and Flash-IP solutions.
The PIC32MZ EF family features high core performance up to 250 MHz, an integrated Floating-Point Unit (FPU), a wide selection of peripherals and excellent connectivity options including Controller Area Network (CAN). The Extended temp portfolio is ideal 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 ideal for applications like high-resolution audio that require slightly higher core performance to provide faster audio processing and streaming.
