Published Date: 07-Feb-2023


Core Independent Peripherals (CIPs) are specially designed hardware blocks inside a microcontroller (MCU) that add new capabilities, reduce code and improve system performance. This application note will showcase an example of this by discussing the design elements, decisions and logic that went into building a Peltier Cooled Metal Plate with only one microcontroller: a 20-pin PIC16F17146.
