Microchip's PIC24FJ 16-bit microcontroller features nanoWatt XLP for eXtreme low power consumption. The device includes advanced low-power features including a low-voltage sleep mode that maintains the device state and RAM with a typical current of 340 nA. Also included is a VBAT pin that automatically transitions the RTCC to a battery supply when VDD is removed.
The family also includes a 480 segment LCD driver with 60 segment x 8 common drive capability. The combination of features makes the part ideally suited to a number of battery powered and general purpose applications.
