Rumor on the street is that Microchip have some new Cortex chips up their sleeve, a Cortex M4 series named PIC32CX and Cortex M7 series named PIC32CZ. Presumably they derive from Atmel SAM products. Anyone got any more info?

 

@gchapman I expect you to be all over this :)

This topic has a solution.

I'll pass :-) though am dazzled by the PIC32MZ DA.

These new MCU (program and data space, functions, multiple computer languages) will emphasize the need for teams.

We seem to tolerate posts about SAMD21 and Micro-bit... should I complain about those?

Rebranding ?

Given PIC32 has always label MIPS cores, that's going to cause some confusion in the market place, but maybe that is the intention ?

Microchip has always tried to elevate 'PIC' above the core, and it seems here you run all the way along the string PIC32, to find the next letter is a M for MIPS and C for Cortex ?

Code is not going to be nearly as portable as the brand name 'suggests', but caveat emptor always applies I guess.

Sure. And those threads will be moved to the SAM forums as they have been in the past unless it's ASF related as there is no forum in the SAM community for that

There, fixed that for ya. Latest rumors have Microchip renaming the 8-bit AVRs to PIC19.

Those rumours have completely eluded Google.  Which is highly unlikely.  Feels like the rumour started in #8.

I looked as well and found nothing.

 

Whatever Joey, IT's only a matter of time.....

maybe PIC32 will move to "AVR32" or whatever but for sure PIC32 will move to ARM core, if they have not moved already..

here is what MPLAbX 4.0 says

 

ARM® GNU Toolchain and MPLAB X IDE
The ARM® GNU toolchain may be used with MPLAB X IDE to provide GUI development of application code for the PIC32C MCU families of devices.

Not quite, there is PIC32M and PIC32C and both exist independently.  That extra letter is important.

PIC32M is not 'moving to' PIC32C.
