The PIC24F “KL” family is Microchip’s lowest cost 16‑bit PIC® microcontroller (MCU) family. It combines the advantages of low cost, eXtreme low power and low pin count for the most cost sensitive applications. These devices feature the 16-bit performance of Microchip’s PIC24 core architecture and a cost effective peripheral set and memory mix.
These devices are designed to execute code with as little current consumption as possible. They are ideal for applications on a strict power budget, including battery powered applications. Microchip’s nanoWatt XLP technology allows the PIC24F “KL” family to achieve typical sleep currents of 30 nA at 25ºC, and typical run mode current consumption of 150 μA/MHz at 1.8V.
