New Product Introduction

Microchip dsPIC33CH dual-core DSCs for high-performance digital power

The dsPIC33CH family is optimized for high-performance digital power, motor control and other applications requiring sophisticated algorithms

Microchip dsPIC33CH Dual-Core DSCs

The dsPIC33CH is designed to facilitate independent code development for each core by separate design teams and later enables seamless integration when they are brought together in one chip.

The dsPIC33CH family is optimized for high-performance digital power, motor control and other applications requiring sophisticated algorithms. This includes applications such as wireless power, server power supplies, drones and automotive sensors.

 

Key features

  • Simplified firmware development with dual independent cores
  • Dual cores and peripherals facilitate functional safety
  • First dsPIC33 with CAN-FD for robust communication
  • Live Update of firmware for high-availability systems

 

Additional features

  • The dsPIC33CH family delivers unprecedented integration in a small 5 x 5 mm package and includes features such as CAN-FD communications.
  • To reduce system costs and board size, advanced peripherals are available to each core including high-speed ADCs, DACs with waveform generation, analog comparators, analog programmable gain amplifiers and high-resolution Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) hardware.
  • Having two cores, with dedicated peripherals, allows the cores to be programmed to monitor each other for functional safety reasons, facilitating robust system design.

 

Applications

  • AC/DC & DC/DC Power Supplies
  • Converters, Chargers, Inverters
  • Wireless Power
  • Automation and Control
