STM32 & Microchip (PIC) MCUs
The STM32 Mainstream series of 32-bit microcontrollers addresses a broad range of applications responding to a majority of converging requirements coming from various segments and applications. The well-balanced device architecture suits basic needs expected in consumer markets, where cost constraints and time to market are essential.
The hardware capabilities of PIC devices range from 6-pin SMD, 8-pin DIP chips up to 144-pin SMD chips, with discrete I/O pins, ADC and DAC modules, and communications ports such as UART, I2C, CAN, and even USB. Low-power and high-speed variations exist for many types.
