PICmicro® microcontrollers (MCUs); an extensive portfolio of analog/interface products; high-endurance Serial EEPROMs; microID® RFID tags; KEELOQ® security devices; and the recently announced dsPIC® family of Digital Signal Controllers. Microchip's innovative Migratable MemoryTM technology provides socket and software compatibility among all of its equivalent ROM, OTP and FLASH memory MCUs. The Migratable Memory technology allows customers to match the selection of MCU memory technology to the product life cycle of their application, providing an easy migration path to a lower cost solution whenever appropriate. FLASH memory is an ideal solution for engineers designing products for embedded control applications where product specifications can change rapidly or when the flexibility of factory inventory and field upgrades are required. Once the product matures, you can easily switch to a drop-in compatible OTP or ROM MCU for a lower cost solution. The PICmicro® MCU family provides a unique combination of a high-performance RISC processor with cost-effective OTP technology. Cost-effective OTP provides many benefits to the user at prices, which can be comparable to competing ROM solutions.
