Montreal, Canada – December 31, 2013 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, announces immediate availability of Microchip’s intelligent analog PIC microcontrollers, which lower BOM cost, reduce noise and increase throughput.
Analog design is difficult and consumes precious development time. Microchip’s intelligent PIC MCUs integrate analog functions such as high performance Analog-to-Digital Converters (ADCs), Digital-to-Analog Converters (DACs) and operational amplifiers (op amps), providing simple to use interfaces that ease analog design. This single chip solution enables reduced system noise and provides higher throughput, while dramatically reducing design time and cost.
This flexibility and efficiency benefit multiple applications, including environmental quality sensors, portable medical equipment (such as glucose meters, portable ECGs, pulse oximeters, blood pressure meters), industrial equipment (such as gas sensors, handheld multimeters, lab instrumentation, e-meters, sensor arrays), power conversion, efficient motor control, lighting, power measurement and monitoring, energy harvesting equipment, and solar inverters.
Microchip’s Intelligent Analog solutions reduce component count, enabling smaller, more cost effective boards and simplified, higher-performance designs. In addition, designers benefit from increased analog topology flexibility utilizing the MCU’s programmable analog interconnects.
