May: 32bit MCU bridges performance gap

As we were turning the calendar from May to June, Microchip said the PIC32MZ DA (see main image) would bridge the graphics performance gap between MCUs and microprocessors.

Kurt Parker, product marketing manager for Microchip’s PIC32 range, said at the launch: “This is true innovation in graphics and memory, which is important when developing applications where the visual interface is important. It’s the first product in the 32bit MCU sector to offer this graphics capability.”

July: IoT development platform aims to speed product time to market

At the beginning of July, Arrow and Cypress unveiled the first Quicksilver kit. Featuring Cypress’ WICED platform and its CYW43907 802.11n MCU, the WICED Studio SDK and Arduino-compatible headers for expansion capability, the platform was intended to help designers get connected IoT product to market more quickly. Also included in the kit were temperature, humidity and three axis motion sensors.
