The new PIC/AVR additions include:

• megaAVR 0-series: ATmega3208/3209/4808/4809 MCUs make real-time control systems more effective with a combination of intelligent hardware peripherals and the low-power 8-bit AVR architecture. Each of the MCUs has pin-count, package, and memory options, as well as integrating a high-speed ADC and Core Independent Peripherals.

• PIC18 64-Pin Controllers: PIC18(L)F65/66K40 MCUs provide large Flash/EE/RAM memory, rich peripheral integration, XLP and 5V support. The 64-pin MCUs feature Core Independent Peripherals, such as CWG, WWDT, CRC/Memory Scan, Hardware CVD, Zero-Cross Detect and Peripheral Pin Select, for a higher level of flexibility and lower overall system cost.

• PIC16(L)F15325/45 8-bit MCU family has a range of analogue, core-independent and communication peripherals, combined with eXtreme Low-Power (XLP) for a wide range of general purpose and low power applications.

Farnell element14 is also offering discounts on several 8-bit development tools with on-board programmer/debuggers.

Customers can also win a copy of “This is (not) Rocket Science”, a guide to Microchip’s most recent 8-bit core-independent peripherals and code tools including the MPLAB X development system.
