Offering high performance and powerful development tool support for embedded control applications is the MCP300X family of four, 10-bit a/d converters. Based on a successive approximation register architecture, the devices feature 200 ks/s throughput, low power of 500 µA active and 5.0 nA standby, wide supply voltage of 2.7V to 5.5V, extended industrial temperature range of -40°C to +85°C, ±1 LSB DNL and ±LSB INL maximum at 200 ks/s, guaranteed no missing codes, and a serial output with an industry-standard SPI bus interface.
The converters come in 1-, 2-, 4-, and 8-input channel versions (the MCP3001, MCP3002, MCP3004 and MCP3008) and in a variety of packages and pin counts. Applications include data acquisition, instrumentation and measurement, and industrial PCs. Pricing in lots of 1000 starts at $1.75 each for MCP3001.
