Microchip Expands Dual- and Single-core dsPIC Digital Signal Controller (DSC) Family

New dsPIC33C devices meet market demand for more memory and functional safety features in automotive and wireless charging applications.

CHANDLER, AZ. Microchip Technology Inc. released its dual- and single-core dsPIC33C Digital Signal Controllers (DSCs) series to adhere to the modified application requirements for memory, temperature and functional safety.

The dsPIC33CH512MP508 dual-core DSC:

  • sustains larger program memory requirements
  • the MP5 expands dsPIC33CH’s Flash memory from 128 KB to 512 KB and triples the program RAM from 24 KB to 72 KB
  • supports automotive and wireless charging applications such as AUTOSAR software, MCAL drivers and CAN FD peripherals

The dsPIC33CK64MP105 single-core DSC:

  • adds a cost-optimized version for applications that require smaller memory and footprint
  • The MP1 provides up to 64 KB Flash memory and 28- to 48- pin packages
  • includes features for automotive sensors, motor control, high-density DC-DC applications or stand-alone Qi transmitters

“With 76 dsPIC33C single- and dual-core devices in the family, the common tools, common peripherals and footprint compatibility make it easier for customers to scale as their memory, I/O, performance or budget needs change,” said Microchip’s MCU16 business unit’s vice president, Joe Thomsen. “In addition, the dual-core options enable easier software integration for separate software development teams to focus on control algorithms versus communications and housekeeping code.”
