Thirty-two-bit MCUs present 330 DMIPS and 3.28 CoreMarks/MHz performance
Microchip Technology announced the new 24-member PIC32MZ Embedded Connectivity (EC) family of 32-bit MCUs. It provides performance of 330 DMIPS and 3.28 CoreMarks/MHz, along with dual-panel, live-update Flash (up to 2 MB), large RAM (512 KB) and the connectivity peripherals—including a 10/100 Ethernet MAC, Hi-Speed USB MAC/PHY and dual CAN ports—needed to support today’s demanding applications. The PIC32MZ also has class-leading code density that is asserted to be 30 percent better than competitors, along with a 28 Msps ADC that is said to one of the best throughput rates for 32-bit MCUs. The family also features full-featured hardware crypto engine with a random number generator for high-throughput data encryption/decryption and authentication (e.g., AES, 3DES, SHA, MD5 and HMAC).
