8-bit MCUs

The PIC and AVR MCU brands represent two dominant architectures in the embedded design universe.
PIC® microcontrollers are finding their way into new applications like smartphones, audio accessories, video gaming peripherals and advanced medical devices.
Microchip provides solutions for the entire performance range of 8-bit microcontrollers, with easy-to-use development tools, complete technical documentation and post design-in support through a global sales and distribution network.

Microchip’s 8-bit AVR® microcontrollers (MCUs) are an excellent choice for designers of a wide variety of embedded systems. These devices offer a unique combination of performance, power efficiency and design flexibility. Optimized to reduce development time, they are based on the industry's most code-efficient architecture for C and assembly programming.

Industry-leading development tools and design support further help you get your design to market faster. Plus, once your products have launched, the large AVR family allows you to reuse your knowledge to improve and enhance your offerings, making it easy and cost-effective to expand into new markets.
