The PIC32MZ device is a complex System-on-Chip (SoC) that is based on the MIPS® microAptiv™ MPU Microprocessor core from Imagination Technologies, Inc. This page provides an overview of the system architecture and features of PIC32 microcontrollers that feature the microAptiv™ MPU Microprocessor core. The microAptiv™ Microprocessor cores are a superset of the MIPS® M14KE™ and M14KEc™ Microprocessor cores. These cores are state of the art, 32-bit, low-power, RISC processor cores with the enhanced MIPS32® Release 3 Instruction Set Architecture (ISA).
