Microchip Technology claims to offer the lowest power 16-bit microcontroller which has a standby current of just 100nA. The PIC24FJ256GB1 family of microcontrollers include an integrated USB 2.0 peripheral and up to 256kbyte flash and 16kbyte RAM on-chip. Capacitive touch user interface designs are supported by an integrated charge time measurement unit and the supplier’s royalty-free mTouch Sensing Solution software development kit. The pricing for the device starts at $3.47 each in 10,000 unit quantities. This is very exciting news for anyone who is working on a battery powered embedded application.
