Microchip has extended its 32-bit PIC32MZ EF microcontroller family to include automotive- grade parts for the first time. It has also introduced a higher-speed variant operating over the industrial temperature range.
The automotive-grade parts are AEC-Q100 Grade 1 qualified for operation over a temperature range from -40°C to 125°C. The higher-speed PIC32MZ EF MCU now operates at 250MHz and has
a 795 CoreMark rating. It operates over a temperature range of -40°C to 85°C.
