Bringing integrated op amps to low-cost 8-bit PIC microcontrollers

Microchip announces two new 8-bit PIC microcontrollers, the PIC16F527 and PIC16F570, which combine the ease-of-use of a PIC MCU with low-cost analogue peripherals to create a well-integrated, cost-effective family suitable for a wide range of applications. With an on-chip dual op amp module, 8-bit ADC and two comparators, these MCUs are ideal for systems that require […]

Unique technology enables radio-based distance measurement

Atmel Corporation recently announced its recently launched AT86RF233 2,4 GHz IEEE 802.15.4 radio transceiver supports distance measurement between two radios, also known as ranging. This novel technology uses the measurement of phase differences between radio signals, and enables items to be tracked within a wireless network for industrial and consumer applications. Phase measurement is a less complex […]

Step-down DC-DC converter

Texas Instruments has introduced a synchronous, 28 V, 500 mA step-down DC/DC converter that can operate at less than 5 uA during “sleep” mode. The new TPS62175 maintains high efficiency during light load operation, while supporting ultra-low power microcontrollers that operate in 12 V, 15 V and 24 V applications, such as industrial sensor, smart […]
