PIC32MZ DA Series MCUs

PIC32MZ DA Series MCUs

Microchip’s PIC32MZ DA series of 32-bit microcontrollers are the industry’s first MCU with integrated 2D graphics processing unit (GPU), DDR2 memory and comprehensive design resources optimized for graphics or Human Machine Interface (HMI) applications. The integrated graphics controller and graphics processor enables developers to implement graphical user interface (GUI) features not previously accessible in MCU-based designs. These products provide on-the-fly image rendering and manipulation to accelerate 2D graphics generation. Customers using these products have access to the most advanced, highly integrated software framework in the industry including MPLAB® Harmony, MPLAB Harmony Configurator, and the MPLAB Harmony Graphics Composer. Developers that use the PIC32MZ DA in their designs should expect microprocessor-like graphics quality while still enjoying the ease of design of an MCU. PIC32MZ DA microcontrollers are available in LFBGA and LFQP packages.
