Microchip announces the new 24-member PIC32MZ Embedded Connectivity (EC) family of 32-bit MCUs.  It provides class-leading performance of 330 DMIPS and 3.28 CoreMarks™/MHz, in addition to dual-panel, live-update Flash (up to 2 MB), large RAM (512 KB) and the connectivity peripherals - including a 10/100 Ethernet MAC, Hi-Speed USB MAC/PHY (a first for PIC® MCUs) and dual CAN ports - needed to support today’s demanding applications.  The PIC32MZ also has class-leading code density that is 30% better than competitors, along with a 28 Msps ADC that offers one of the best throughput rates for 32-bit MCUs.  Completing this family’s high level of integration is a full-featured hardware crypto engine with a random number generator for high-throughput data encryption/decryption and authentication such as AES, 3DES, SHA, MD5 and HMAC, as well as the first SQI interface on a Microchip MCU and the PIC32’s highest number of serial channels.

Embedded designers are faced with ever-increasing demands for additional features that require more MCU performance and memory.  At the same time, they are looking to lower cost and complexity by using fewer MCUs.  The PIC32MZ family provides 3x the performance and 4x the memory over the previous-generation PIC32MX families, in addition to a high level of advanced peripheral integration.  For applications requiring embedded connectivity, the family includes Hi-Speed USB, Ethernet and CAN, as well as a broad set of wired and wireless protocol stacks.  Many embedded applications are adding better graphics displays, and the PIC32MZ can support up to a WQVGA display without any external graphics chips.  Streaming/digital audio applications can take advantage of this family’s 159 DSP instructions, large memory, peripherals such as I2S, and available software.

Field updates are another growing challenge for design engineers and managers.  The PIC32MZ’s 2 MB of internal Flash enables live updates via dual independent panels that provide a fail-safe way to conduct field updates while operating at full speed.            …./…

“Our new PIC32MZ family was designed for high-end and next-generation embedded applications that require high levels of performance, memory and advanced-peripheral integration,” said Rod Drake, director of Microchip’s MCU32 Division.  “The PIC32MZ enables designers to add features such as improved graphics displays, faster real-time performance and increased security with a single MCU, lowering both cost and complexity.”

The PIC32MZ is Microchip’s first MCU to employ Imagination’s MIPS microAptiv™ core, which adds 159 new DSP instructions that enable the execution of DSP algorithms at up to 75% fewer cycles than the PIC32MX families.  This core also provides the microMIPS® instruction-set architecture, which improves code density while operating at near full rate, instruction and data cache, and its 200 MHz/330 DMIPS offers 3x the performance of the PIC32MX.

“Microchip is a flag-bearer for the MIPS architecture in microcontrollers, having created its performance-leading PIC32 line around MIPS.  Additionally, Microchip was a valued partner in defining the feature set for the new MIPS microAptiv CPU, which is designed to fulfill next-generation application demands for increased performance and functionality,” said Tony King-Smith, EVP Marketing, Imagination Technologies.  “With its new microAptiv-based PIC32MZ family, Microchip is again taking MCU performance and feature innovation to new levels.  Imagination is delighted with this latest achievement of our strategic relationship with Microchip to address ever-evolving market needs.”

Microchip is making three new PIC32MZ development tools available today.  The complete, turn-key PIC32MZ EC Starter Kit is priced at $119, and comes in two versions to support family members with the integrated crypto engine (DM320006C) and those without (DM320006).  The Multimedia Expansion Board II (DM320005-2) is available at the introductory rate of $29
