Closed-loop control happen to be one of the most basic tasks carried out by embedded systems whether it is in air handling units or pool pumps. The new developments in framework of AVR® and PIC® 8-bit MCU (microcontrollers) come with an ability to manage many more tasks as well as saving power. The Microchip Technology Inc. recently introduced ATtiny1607 and PIC18 Q10 families to give a free hand to designers who wish to maximize the efficiency and performance of such systems.

The AVR® and PIC® MCUs feature numerous logical CIPs (Core Independent Peripherals) that ease up the development and allow instant response time to system events. These AVR® and PIC® MCUs are perfect for closed-loop control system. One of the prime benefits of using PIC 18 Q10 as well as ATtiny1607 MCUs is CIPs that freely manage all tasks and brings down the amount of processing needed from CPU. The AVR® and PIC® MCUs will also enable system designers save much more time and ease the design efforts with hardware-based CIPs that also bring down the need for software needed to write as well as validate.
