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
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
