Microchip’s PIC18-Q84 8-bit PIC® MCUs with an extensive array of CIPs and CAN FD

The PIC18-Q84 family of microcontrollers (MCUs) from Microchip Technology expands the 8-bit PIC MCUs by combining an extensive array of CIPs with controller area network flexible data rate (CAN FD). These MCUs contain time-saving CIPs in up to 48-pins with up to 128 KB of Flash memory. The family offers increased flexibility with customizable timers and automated analog signal analysis for real-time response. Additionally, they include industry-standard features like the JTAG boundary scan, 32-bit cyclic redundancy check (CRC) with memory scan on boot for added system safety. Users can benefit greatly from the saved time since it is significantly easier to configure a hardware-based peripheral instead of writing and validating an entire software routine to accomplish a task.
