Day 1: 7th June 2021 - 14:00 to 15:00 CET: PIC® & AVR® Core Independent Peripherals (CIPs)

Core Independent Peripherals (CIPs) are designed to implement a variety of functions and applications that don’t need constant interaction with the Central Processing Unit (CPU). 

Within this course, you will learn about the advantages CIPs bring to real-world applications:

  • Improve Power Savings
  • CPU-free Intelligent and Parallel Control
  • Deterministic, Direct signal routing

We will demonstrate how to configure the CIPs in an example application using Microchip tools.  Example CIPs will be: CLC (Configurable Logic Cell), Timers, ADC, Op Amps, DAC, ZCD, Serial Communication, GPIO... 

Day 2: 8th June 2021 - 14:00 to 15:00 CET: Functional Safety (FuSa) Ready PIC & AVR Microcontrollers

Robustness, reliability and safety of end-products are becoming ever more important. The standards for Functional Safety depend on the market that is targeted.

In this course you will be given an introduction to the Functional Safety Standards that are supported by the PIC & AVR microcontrollers:

  • FuSa for Automotive Applications – ISO 26262 (ASIL)
  • FuSa for Industrial Applications – IEC 61508 (SIL)
  • FuSa for household Applications – IEC 60730

At the end, you will understand the support Microchip offers to help achieve the certification level required for your application.

Day 3: 9th June 2021 - 14:00 to 15:00 CET: PIC & AVR Microcontrollers with On-Chip Touch Peripherals

This course will present the touch technology available on the PIC & AVR devices. 

We will focus on demonstrating the whole ecosystem that supports developers configure and integrate the following touch interfaces into their applications:

  • Buttons, Sliders, Wheels
  • Proximity support
  • Water Tolerant Touch

  • Using high-precision architectures enables superior DC performance, regardless of operating conditions
  • Low noise and additional EMI filtering on the inputs provide additional protection in electrically noisy environments
  • Small packages, such as leadless DFNs, are ideal for space-constrained designs
  • A wide operating temperature range of –40°C to +125°C provides a robust solution even at extreme temperatures

Microchip Instrumentation Amplifier with mCAL Technology

The MCP6N11 and MCP6V2x Wheatstone Bridge Reference Design demonstrates the performance of Microchip's MCP6N11 instrumentation amplifier (INA) and a traditional three op amp INA using Microchip's MCP6V26 and MCP6V27 auto-zeroed op amps. The input signal comes from an RTD temperature sensor in a Wheatstone bridge. Real world interference is added to the bridge's output, to provide realistic performance comparisons. Data is gathered and displayed on a PC, for ease of use. The USB PIC® microcontroller and included Graphical User Interface (GUI) provides the means to configure the board and collect sample data.
