dsPIC33CH Dual-Core DSPs

Microchip’s first family of dual-core digital signal processors (DSPs) optimized for digital power and motor control

Image of Microchip Technology's dsPIC33CH Dual-Core DSPsMicrochip Technology's innovative dsPIC33CH dual-core DSPs have two dsPIC® cores in a single chip that provides easy software integration for system developers designing high-end embedded control applications with multiple software teams. The dsPIC33CH has one core that is a master while the other is a slave. The slave core is for executing dedicated, time-critical control code. The master core runs the user interface, system monitoring and communications functions, and customizations for the end application. The dsPIC33CH is designed to facilitate independent code development for each core by separate design teams and later enables seamless integration when they are brought together in one chip. The dsPIC33CH family is optimized for high-performance digital power, motor control, and other applications requiring sophisticated algorithms. This includes applications such as wireless power, server power supplies, drones, and automotive sensors. The dsPIC33CH is supported by Microchip’s MPLAB® development ecosystem including MPLAB X integrated development environment (IDE). Supported by the popular MPLAB code configurator (MCC) tool, setting up pin assignments, peripheral modes, and application stacks has never been easier, drastically reducing customers’ design cycles and time-to-market.
