Four new 8-bit CAN (Controller Area Network) Flash PIC microcontrollers combine a small form factor with ECAN module and nanoWatt Technology power management to complete the seamless migration path of the company’s PIC18F CAN microcontroller portfolio. Included is the ”world’s smallest,” according to the manufacturer, CAN microcontroller in a 28-pin, 6×6 mm QFN package for minimal occupied board space and lower total system cost. On-board ECAN module enables multiple applications to be configured on a single node and easy implementation of a software protocol bridge from a CAN network.
