Microchip Technology (Chandler, AZ) expanded its 36V digital potentiometer (digipot) portfolio with two new volatile, I2C devices—the MCP45HV31 and MCP45HV51 (MCP45HV31-51). These are the industry’s first digipots to offer a 5 kohm resistance with a specified operating voltage of 36V. The MCP45HV31-51 digipots support both 7-bit and 8-bit resistor configurations, and a high terminal/wiper current, including the ability to sink/source up to 25 mA on all terminal pins for driving larger loads. Additional features include:
- 10V to 36V analog operation and 1.8V to 5.5V digital operation.
- Temperature range of -40°C to +125°C.
- RAB resistance options of 5, 10, 50 and 100 kohms.
