Features & Applications
The PIC16C57C-20/SO is EPROM-based member of the versatile PIC16C5X family of low cost, high performance, 8-bit fully static,EPROM/ROM-based CMOS microcontrollers. It can sustain standard temperature ranges from -40°C to +85°C and has 28 pin in SOIC package. This device is lead free.

The PIC16C5X delivers performance in an order of  higher magnitude. The 12-bit wide instructions are highly symmetrical resulting in 2:1 code compression over other 8-bit microcontrollers in its class. The easy to use and easy to remember instruction set reduces development time significantly.

Products from this Family are equipped with special features that reduce system cost and power requirements.This powerful (100 nanosecond instruction execution) yet easy-to-program (only 33 single word instructions) CMOS OTP-based 8-bit microcontroller packs Microchip’s powerful PIC® architecture into a 28-pin package. Easily adapted for automotive, industrial, appliances and consumer entry-level product applications.
