As you may know if you are a computer enthusiast, there are so many small pieces that go into a computer’s CPU, and sometimes you must look very closely if you want to get a good look at everything that is going on. And one of the types of hardware that always plays an important role in how computers are developed, and in other electronics, is the microcontroller. There are many types of microcontrollers that have been developed over the years, and lately we have been hearing a lot of good things about the PIC microcontroller. So, what does it offer?
If you want to develop a full understanding of how the PIC microcontroller works, we would suggest that you click here, as the site goes into a lot of detail about how it works and how the architecture is developed. But if you are mainly interested in the perks of the hardware, we can talk about that in some detail. One of the best aspects of the PIC microcontroller is how you can get a very good level of performance throughout a system thanks to the speed and efficiency of the microcontroller. In addition, you are getting much lower power consumption, which is always useful.
Another aspect that many developers and engineers are happy about is the speed of the PIC microcontroller. As compared to some of the previous types of microcontrollers that were popular, you are getting anywhere from 10 to 16 percent more speed. If you are running a “run of the mil” system, the 8-bit architecture should do the job. But, if you are looking for some serious juice, without sacrificing efficiency, you can take a look at the 32-bit version of the microcontroller. In either case, you are getting a piece of hardware that offers you a ton of perks.
