EMULATION TECHNOLOGY ANNOUNCES DEVELOPMENT HARDWARE SUPPORT FOR THE WORLD’S
Complete development support provided for Microchip Technology’s PIC10F
family of 6-pin, SOT-23, 8-bit Flash microcontrollers
SANTA CLARA, Calif., October 5, 2004—Emulation Technology (ET), announced
today complete development support for Microchip Technology’s PIC10F
microcontroller family (PIC10F200, PIC10F202, PIC10F204, PIC10F206)—the
world’s smallest microcontrollers. Responding to designers’ and test
engineers’ specific needs for development solutions for this new device
package, ET has created sockets, receptacles and adapters to accommodate the
ultra-small form factor of the new 8-bit, 6-pin Flash devices housed in
Microchip’s new PIC10F microcontrollers are very small—measuring about one-eighth of an inch by one-sixteenth of an inch. Analysts project that the PIC10F’s small form factor and low cost will contribute to its popularity
with designers working on projects such as consumer products and industrial
The PIC10F’s ultra-small form factor presents challenges to electronic designers and others implementing, prototyping and testing designs using the microcontrollers. ET’s support includes the following test accessories:
- Zero Insertion Force (ZIF) Socket allows users to remove the SOT-23
packaged device, and re-insert into the development board without soldering.
The ZIF socket design ensures proper IC positioning, preventing device
- SOT Socket Receptacle allows the ZIF socket to be easily removed and
replaced. The gold-plated pins provide a quick and reliable connection to a
programmer, PCB and ZIF socket.
- Programming/Prototyping Adapter with wire wrap male pins or screw machine
male pins provide for easy and reliable conversion of programmers and
prototyping PCBs so your design can be verified and tested quickly.
- SOT Emulation Adapter extends development capabilities and converts the
SOT target footprint to an 8-pin Female DIP for easy hookup to a DIP
APPLICATIONS - FAILURE ANALYSIS / DEVICE VERIFICATION
Often engineers need to do failure analysis or device verification during
the design and/ or production phase of a system. Now they can remove a
PIC10F component from a production board socket, install the component in ET’s SOT prototyping adapter soldered to the PCB and test the component
outside the circuit.
“Emulation Technology provides a full line of interconnect adapters for
development tools, which help design engineers to quickly prototype a design
with our PIC10F family of microcontrollers,” said Derek Carlson, Director of
Development Systems and Software at Microchip Technology. “Microchip is
always seeking ways to augment our development-tool suite and assist our
customers in reducing time to market. We're pleased that ET has a unique
line of support products for the PIC10F family of microcontrollers.”
