This New Product Brief (NPB) is part of a video series highlighting the features, applications, and technical specs of newly-released products.

Microchip Technology PIC18-Q41 Microcontrollers

Microchip Technology PIC18-Q41 microcontrollers are ideal for low-power real-time control and sensing in medical, IoT, automotive, industrial, and motor control applications. 

The PIC18-Q41 integrates advanced analog capabilities, including an operational amplifier, two 8-bit DACs, and a 12-bit ADC with computation. These can be used to automate capacitive voltage divider techniques for touch sensing, averaging, filtering, oversampling, and threshold comparison.  

They also include configurable Core Independent Peripherals that can address complex tasks in hardware with very little code and without CPU intervention, for efficient and responsive operation. The PIC18-Q41 also offers four DMA controllers that provide fast and efficient data transfer, further reducing power consumption and improving performance. 

The MCUs can operate from 1.8 to 5.5 volts and are offered in industrial and extended temperature versions.
