Highlighting how a single USB Client device can function on three completely different Host architectures, the standards organization governing StackableUSB announces the release of the PIC24 and PIC32 Host microcontrollers, the third distinctive architecture to support Host-side StackableUSB. Micro/sys, a single board computer manufacturer and member of the standards organization, combines StackableUSB with the PIC24 and PIC32, Microchip’s microcontrollers providing embedded Host capability. Underscoring the versatility of the StackableUSB standard, Chairperson Susan Wooley points out how the same microSD card reader or NAND Flash controller can add a 16G removable media device or 8G solid state hard drive to a microcontroller module, MIPS, ARM, or Pentium-based single board computer.
“Microchip is excited to participate in the rapidly expanding market for StackableUSB products,” said Terry West, Microchip’s 32-bit microcontroller marketing manager. “The Microchip 32-bit PIC32 microcontroller brings high-performance, full-featured embedded processing capabilities with an 80 MHz MIPS32
