'[PIC] 10 MIPS at 3V'

Good news for those that need more horsepower at lower voltages:

I just learned today from a Microchip web seminar that there will be some
PIC18 PICmicros coming out in the future that can operate at 10 MIPS at 3
volts. This is a pretty significant development since with current PIC18F
PICmicros, you typically have to run at 4.2 volts or higher (with respect to
Vss) to get 10 MIPS.

That's exactly what we really need. Down to 2.7 volts and run on at least 10 MIPS.
Funny

Cool news. Almost all my designs in the past two years have been 3V or
3.3V designs (except PIC for various reasons, which have been mostly
5V).
Did Microchip say if they'll ever have 3V flash programming (i.e. bulk
erase at less than 4. whatever volts)? I personally find this a major
stumbling block to low voltage PIC designs. Right now I use a high
voltage ICSP interface but I'd love to go to LVP (with full functions)
on a 3v only design.
I have to say, I've been doing a lot of MSP430 designs lately and I
love that family of MPUs.

Hi Matt,

That's a great question -- they did not say anything regarding that in the
web seminar. I will look into this when the data sheet(s) are released in
the future. I would imagine that they have heard a lot of feedback from
customers from the issue you raised above in your quote. We'll see what
happens. If it's real important to you I would contact Microchip and ask
them to see what their plans are. I've always found them to be very helpful
and receptive to suggestions.

Best regards,

Ken Pergola

Ken, thank you for your posts about Microchip products.
Much appreciated
