Mouser Electronics and Microchip Technology Present Webinar on PIC and AVR Microcontrollers for Sensing Applications

Mouser Electronics, Inc., the authorised global distributor with the newest semiconductors and electronic components, has teamed up with Microchip Technology to provide the engineering community with a new free webinar titled “Optimising Sensing Applications with PIC and AVR Microcontrollers”. The webinar will be streamed live at 16:00 CEST on Tuesday 11 July 2023.

The webinar will cover enhancements on modern PIC and AVR MCUs, including advanced analogue peripherals and how these can be easily configured in the easy-to-use Microchip toolchain.

The online learning session will demonstrate how the new PIC18F56Q71, PIC16F18126/46 and AVR16/32DD28/32 AVR® DD MCUs from Microchip can be used either standalone or as an analogue sensing companion device. The new MCUs, when paired with a processing centric controller, enable complex designs that cross multiple voltage domains. This combination of small form-factor MCUs provides features well suited to applications requiring low power consumption, robust operation, and dynamic sensing capabilities, such as home automation, industrial process control, automotive and Internet of Things (IoT).

The new PIC18F56Q71 PIC MCUs also offer many suitable features for advanced sensing applications, including the ability to dynamically reduce analogue peripheral power consumption without CPU intervention, analogue-to-digital conversion with dynamic context switching of integrated math hardware, and much more.

The PIC and AVR MCUs can be used in conjunction with their own dedicated Curiosity Nano evaluation boards to offer designers a simple way to debug and integrate the devices into their custom designs. This includes the EV72Y42A for the AVR64DD32, the EV72J15A for the PIC16F17146 and the EV01G21A for the PIC18FQ71 family, available to order from Mouser.

By attending this webinar, participants will learn:

  • How newer PIC and AVR devices enable low-power, robust and responsive sensor data acquisition
  • How integrated analogue on new PIC and AVR devices can interconnect with other on-chip resources for automated task handling
  • How to use tools like MPLAB Code Configurator to quickly and easily develop and deploy applications
  • How to interconnect with other devices to optimise system performance

The webinar will be presented by Marc McComb, Principal Technical Marketing Engineer and Manager at Microchip Technology. For the past 13 years, Marc has helped engineering customers and decision makers integrate embedded technology into consumer electronics.
