The high performance of the PIC12F devices can be attributed to a number of architectural features commonly found in RISC microprocessors. To begin with, the PIC12F devices use a Harvard architecture in which program and data are accessed on separate buses. This improves bandwidth over traditional von Neumann architectures where program and data are fetched on the
same bus. Separating program and data memory further allows instructions to be sized differently than the 8-bit wide data word. more
The PIC10F220 is a low-cost, high-performance, 8-bit, fully-static Flash-based CMOS microcontroller. It employs a RISC architecture with only 33 single-word/ single-cycle instructions.
