Microchip today unveiled a new addition to the 16-bit PIC MCU and dsPIC Digital Signal Controller portfolios with the cost-effective dsPIC33FJ32MC104 family which offers up to 32 KB Flash, 16 MIPS of performance, and small pin outs for cost-sensitive motor control, consumer, medical and industrial applications.
The dsPIC33FJ32MC104 family delivers a low-cost 16-bit solution with powerful peripherals in packages ranging from 18 to 44 pins. Using a dsPIC DSC to digitally control a motor enables several industry-leading features, including greater energy efficiency, sensorless operation and more precise control. The dsPIC33FJ32MC104, with its low-cost and integrated DSP capabilities along with on-chip and advanced motor control peripherals, enables sensorless BLDC motor control in cost-sensitive applications, such as power tools and high-end toys. The dsPIC33FJ32M104 is an excellent solution for customers working on low-cost motor control applications by providing a higher performance with the 16-bit dsPIC core at low cost.

“The dsPIC33FJ32MC104 family was developed for cost-sensitive motor control, consumer, medical and industrial applications that require up to 16 MIPS performance with an optional DSP engine,” said Mitch Obolsky, vice president of Microchip’s MCU16 Division. “The family provides a perfect combination of performance, memory, flexible peripherals and small packages for such cost sensitive applications.”
