Medical Applications Enabled by New 8-bit PIC Microcontrollers
Mon, 11/02/2009 - 12:04pm
Microchip Technology Inc.’s new four-member family of high-performance 8-bit PIC® microcontrollers (MCUs) is developed for medical applications. The PIC18F87J93 8-bit direct LCD-drive MCUs feature up to 16 channels of 12-bit Analog-to-Digital Conversion (ADC), the mTouch™ Charge Time Measurement Unit (CTMU) peripheral for touch sensing, and a hardware Real-Time Clock and Calendar (RTCC). With this enhanced analog functionality and rich peripheral set, the PIC18F87J93 family enables the precise measurements and sensors, as well as the high levels of integration, that medical applications require.
