PIC32MK High-Performance 32-bit Microcontrollers for Precision Motor Control

Featuring Unmatched Analog Peripherals, DSP and Floating Point in a Small Package Size

The Microchip PIC32MK 32-bit Microcontroller (MCU) family is the perfect fit for industrial, automotive and motor control applications. This is done with the MCU family’s industry-leading hardware, computational performance, integration capability, communication interfaces and VQFN/TQFP package sizes.

The PIC32MK series by Microchip adds intelligence to all applications, while reducing overall energy consumption and increasing the lifespan of its end-application motors. The PIC32MK features high computational performance CPU running at 120MHz (198 DMIPS), hardware Floating Point Unit (FPU) and DSP. These MCUs also have industry-leading analog integration, a variety of communication interfaces like USB, CAN FD, SPI, I2C and UART, available in a wide range of package sizes.
