Small MCU Package Adds Lots of Flash

October 23, 2007 11:08 am | Microchip Technology Inc. | Product Releases | Comments

The small packages -- down to 6×6 mm -- Microchip Technology uses for its newest PIC24F 16-bit microcontroller family do not compromise memory or I/O capabilities. The chips, available in 28- and 44-pin QFN packages, include 16 Kbytes to 64 Kbytes of flash program memory and as many as 8 Kbytes of SRAM. The PIC24FJ64GA004 family lets developers use a pin-mapping function to connect I/O devices to specific MCU pins as needed.

Compiler Cuts Code in Half

October 23, 2007 11:01 am | Atmel Corporation | Product Releases | Comments

Hi-Tech Software has announced a new compilation technology that generates object code based on call- and pointer-reference graphs derived from all the modules in an embedded program. The new technology, called Omniscient Code Generation (OCG), overcomes problems in conventional compilers that can miss inconsistent calling conventions, variable declarations and redundant code because they compile each module independently and separately. OCG results in more easily ported code that is nearly 50 percent more dense than code from competing compilers.
