Microchip PIC32 microcontroller.

  • 512 KB of SRAM
  • 2 MB of NOR flash
  • MIPS microAptiv CPU
  • No crypto accelerator (ECM series has this)
  • ADC
  • PLL
  • Other miscellaneous stuff

This is the first chip we've seen with a microAptiv core and Microchip's most powerful MCU to date, presumably intended to give STM32 a run for its money.

It's brand new, to the point that Microchip's website still shows it as “future product” and it's not sold on anything but dev boards. We just wanted process info so the rather serious errata were a non-issue.

Looks like a 130 nm copper process, probably 6-metal. Fill pattern looks like TSMC.
