Technology Inc. is expanding its 8-bit segmented LCD
microcontroller (MCU) family with five new devices-the PIC16LF1902/3/4/6/7 (PIC16LF190X) MCUs. The PIC16LF190X
family supports many general-purpose applications and enables the
implementation of LCD into low-power and cost-sensitive designs, such as
security tokens, smart cards, medical devices, home appliances, key fobs or any application involving a segmented LCD.
Featuring eXtreme Low Power (XLP) technology for sleep currents down to 20 nA, and
a typical active current of 35 microamperes per MHz, the MCUs extend battery
life, while maintaining accurate timing with a RTC and driving a segmented LCD.
The PIC16LF190X includes up to 14 KByte of Flash
program memory, up to 512 Bytes of RAM, up to 14 10-bit Analog-to-Digital
Converter (A dc) channels, serial communication, temperature indicator and the
capability to drive up to 116 LCD segments.
With the addition of XLP technology
for extended battery life, and capabilities such as utilizing the integrated
temperature indicator to provide crystal-accuracy compensation, low-power RTC
support and low voltage-detect support utilizing the internal A dc and voltage
reference, the MCUs enable low-cost LCD solutions for portable devices.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
Healthcare might seem to be an unlikely target application for the Internet of Things technology, but recent developments show small ways that big-data is going to make an impact on patient care moving into the future.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
