Microchip Technology Inc. (Chandler, AZ), a provider of microcontroller (MCU) and analog semiconductors, announced the PIC10F eight-bit, Flash microcontroller family, with four members (PIC10F200, PIC10F202, PIC10F204 and PIC10F206), which feature the high performance of the PIC™ microcontroller architecture into the ultra-small form factor of a SOT-23 package for space-constrained and low-cost applications.
The PIC10F family offers 256 to 512 instructions (x12-bit program words) of Flash program memory and 16 bytes to 24 bytes of data RAM memory. The devices also feature a 4 MHz internal oscillator, 33 instructions, two stack levels, 25 mA source/sink current I/O, low-power (100 nA) sleep current, a wide operating voltage range from 2 V to 5 V, one eight-bit timer, a watchdog timer, In Circuit Serial Programming™ technology, power-on reset, power-saving sleep mode and (in the PIC10F204 and PIC10F206 only) an analog comparator module.
The PIC10F200, PIC10F202, PIC10F204 and PIC10F206 are offered in six-pin SOT-23 packages. Samples are available now, and volume production for all four microcontrollers is expected by August. In 10,000-unit quantities, the PIC10F200 is $0.49 each, the PIC10F202 and PIC10F204 are both $0.57 each, and the PIC10F206 is $0.65 each.
