CAN MCUs 8 bitMicrochip Technology Inc. announced the PIC18F “K80” 8-bit CAN microcontrollers (MCUs) featuring 1.8-V to 5.5-V operation and eXtreme Low Power (XLP) technology, for sleep current consumption of less than 20 nA. The MCUs also feature an on-chip 12-bit analog-to-digital converter (ADC) and a peripheral that enables mTouch capacitive touch-sensing user interfaces. They are suitable for applications in the automotive (e.g. body control modules, automotive lighting, door/seat/steering/window control, HVAC control), industrial (e.g. security systems, elevators and escalators) and medical (e.g. glucose meters, patient-monitoring devices) markets. For medical applications that require low power and accuracy, the MCUs are asserted to deliver best-in-industry current ratings for longer battery life, as well as the on-chip 12-bit ADC and touch-sensing peripheral for advanced sensors.
