Additions to the PIC24H 16-bit microcontroller family
Microchip Technology adds low pin count microcontrollers
Microchip Technology Inc . unveiled three additions to the PIC24H high-performance 16-bit microcontroller family, featuring low pin counts with up to 32K of Flash program memory in packages as small as 6 x 6 mm.t microcontrollers and DSP-enabled DSCs. Being able to easily migrate among the more than 100 dsPIC DSCs and PIC24 microcontrollers in the company’s 16-bit portfolio accelerates time to market and provides a path to quickly respond to requirement changes during design and to provide scalability. The PIC24HJ32 family also features Peripheral Pin Select, which allows designers to remap digital I/O to optimize board layout, permitting smaller boards, less noise, and the use of a lower pin count microcontroller.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
