Much of our design work has required us to use embedded control systems. We have extensive compiler and emulation hardware, this includes: ARM, Arizona Microchip (PIC), Texas Instruments (DSP), Analogue Devices DSP’s , Hitachi and Cypress PSOC to mention a few. “In system programmable” parts both digital arrays and PIC devices are used, both of which reduce production costs and accelerate development times. Our wide range of designs have included the smallest 8 pin micro, MCU, embedded controllers, serial EEPROMS (E2PROMS), right up to multi-processor management systems. Embedded systems are commonly used in all electronic design projects. We have UK and Asia manufacturing facilities.
We are part of the consultants’ programme for Arizona Microchip and fully support the PIC range of microcontrollers, which offer compatibility over a large performance range and are very inexpensive.
Please contact us to discuss your specific requirement.
In this application (shown below) a PIC 16c65 is used as an embedded controller to manage all the display, keyboard and power functions of this precision monitoring instrument whilst still drawing only a tiny amount of power (allowing many hours of use from a single PP3 size battery). All this functionality and 32 bit floating point arithmetic fits comfortably within the 4K code space of the PIC micro.
