The supplier's first family of 16-bit PIC microcontrollers (MCUs), the PIC24, addresses the growing performance needs of embedded designers. The PIC24 16-bit MCUs debuted with 22 general-purpose devices and offers up to 40 MIPS performance, 16 Kbytes of RAM and 256 Kb of Flash program memory, in up to 100-pin packages. The MCUs maintain compatibility with the supplier’s universal MPLAB Integrated Development Environment (IDE) development-tool platform and software compatibility with all dsPIC digital signal controllers for a simplified upward migration path.
