A PICmicro Flash MCU from Microchip Technology Inc., the PIC16F72, is code- and pinout-compatible with the company's ROM-based PIC16CR72 and one-time programmable PIC16C72A microcontrollers, providing a migration path for customers that need to speed up their development cycles.

The device targets small memory applications requiring analog functionality with serial communication and digital I/O, such as automotive body and cabin controls, electric tools, battery chargers and consumer appliances.

The MCU features 3.6KB of Flash program memory, 128 bytes of RAM, processing performance of up to 5MIPS and a 2V to 5.5V operating voltage range. It also includes a five-channel, 8-bit ADC, a capture/compare PWM module, two 8-bit timers and a 16-bit timer, brownout detection/reset, a watchdog timer, and in-circuit serial programming technology.

Serial I/O features include SPI and I2C communication protocols. Prices in 1,000-piece quantities are $1.97 for 28-lead PDIP, SOIC and QFPs, and $2.05 for a 28-pin SSOPs.
