The PIC24FJ GU4/GL4 microcontroller family from Microchip Technology offers up to 512 KB of dual partition Flash supporting real-time over-the-air (OTA) updates and EEPROM emulation. It is in stock at Digi-Key.

Along with several core independent peripherals (CIPs), it includes a full speed USB and a segmented LCD controller with animation support.

With high memory and sleep current down to a few hundreds of nanoamps while retaining the complete RAM content, this family is perfect for IoT, industrial, consumer, and medical applications.

Supported in the MPLAB Code Configurator (MCC) tool, the development time gets significantly reduced by allowing users to configure the devices and libraries with just a few clicks.

To address the evolving focus on safety and security, these MCUs offer hardware safety features and secure protection schemes, simplifying the design of smart, safe, secure, and connected applications.

These MCUs feature protection schemes such as Flash one-time programmable (OTP) by ICSP Write Inhibit which allows the entire Flash to be configured as OTP memory and CodeGuard Flash Security which facilitates to segment the memory and implement access restrictions.

These features together with Microchip’s CryptoAuthentication chips enable users to implement security in their applications.

Offering an extended operating temperature of up to 125°C with AEC Q100 Grade 1 qualification, this family is also well suited for automotive and industrial applications.

A range of hardware safety features on this family facilitates users’ application’s compliance with safety requirements. With a high level of analogue integration, this family simplifies sensor interfacing and analogue measurement, while reducing the overall system BoM cost.

The rich feature set of the new PIC24FJ GU4/GL4 MCU family is ideal for metering and other handheld animated, autonomous LCD applications.
