hi to all,

I have seen all the controller names which has some prefix and suffix as GP/GU/MC/MU like that. I dont know what it is, could you help me why they denoting like that.

dsPIC33EPXXX(GP/MC/MU)806/810/814 and PIC24EPXXX(GP/GU)810/814

Thanks,
Anboli.

If you check in the related datasheet, the last page has got product identification system. There the information is available about the family of controllers it belongs to:

GP - general purpose
MC - Motor Control
GM7 - General Purpose plus Motor Control
MU8 - Motor Control family with USB
GU8 - General Purpose family with USB
GS - Switch Mode Power Supply (SMPS)
