PIC16F15386 family from Microchip Integrates CIPs uses MPLAB Code Configurator for Quick Development

Microchip Technology announces availability of the most powerful launching point into the 8-bit PIC microcontroller (MCU) portfolio. The PIC16F15386 family In addition to its current Core Independent Peripherals (CIPs), this family includes a high accuracy 32 MHz internal oscillator and memory features like Memory Access Partition (MAP) with bootloader-friendly write-protection to prevent accidental over-write.

Key Nuggets Include

  • Device Information Area (DIA) offers protected storage for unique device identification and calibration values.
  • The PIC16F15386 family also offers a comprehensive, easy-to-use development experience with Microchip’s MPLAB Xpress with MPLAB Code Configurator (MCC) – the quickest way to generate application code.
  • The family is suitable for a broad range of general purpose and low-power applications.
  • The scalable family offers up to 28KB Flash and 2KB RAM in 8- to 48-pin package options.
  • It is the first 8-bit PIC MCU family to offer the 48-pin package, adding more Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC) channels and I/Os.
  • The family offers high levels of CIP integration to perform system functions (signal generation, motor control, safety monitoring, system communications, and human interface) outside the core while consuming as little power as possible.
  • The new MCUs also contain power management features (IDLE and DOZE modes and Peripheral Module Disable) that allow engineers to optimise the balance between power consumption and performance.

“We’ve always offered a diverse portfolio of products with large market appeal,” said Steve Drehobl, vice president of Microchip’s 8-bit MCU division. “With the combination of the most requested features and peripherals by our large base of PIC MCU users, the flexibility in memory size and package options and the availability of MPLAB Xpress with MCC, we expect the PIC16F15386 family to be popular with experienced and first time PIC MCU designers.”


The PIC16F15386 family includes 13 unique products that are offered in various package options including PDIP, SOIC, DFN, UDFN, UQFN and SSOP. All products are available now for sampling and volume production.

To purchase products one can go to the new, easier to navigate and mobile-optimized microchipDIRECT or contact one of Microchip’s authorised distribution partners.
