These new components can be found in the Altium Hobart Vault and include the following families:
PIC10 and PIC12
These are Microchip’s classic 8-bit MCU devices covering baseline/mid-range architecture levels. They are 6- to 64-pin, low-cost, small form factor MCUs utilizing a 12-bit instruction word for baseline (PIC10/PIC12) and 14-bit for mid-range (PIC12). They join the already released collection of other 8-bit, 16-bit and 32-bit PIC microcontrollers and digital signal controllers.
Thermal management, mixed-signal and linear devices
These families add to Microchip’s analog components already released (see Power Management). Thermal management includes temperature sensors (voltage, logic and serial output) and brushless DC fan controllers. Mixed-signal covers ADCs, F/V converters and DACs. Linear devices completes the group with amplifiers and comparators.
Interface and wireless
Microchip’s interface device family covers CAN, Ethernet, infrared, LIN transceivers and I/O expanders. Wireless includes RF devices and KEELOQ encoders and decoders.
AltiumLive Subscribers can use these components by connecting to the Hobart Vault directly from Altium Designer 10 using their AltiumLive credentials, or by browsing to the AltiumLive Design Content area and selecting the Altium Hobart Vault.
