December 3, 2015 - Microchip announces MCP48FXBXX digital-to-analog converters with an integrated EEPROM that enables DAC settings to be restored at power-up and reduces microcontroller overhead.
The six-member MCP48FEBXX DAC family offers integrated EEPROM to save DAC settings at power-down, while the MCP48FVBXX family provides lower-cost alternatives for applications that don’t require integrated memory. These low-power, single and dual-channel DACs feature 8, 10 and 12-bit resolution, a SPI serial interface, and are available in 10-pin MSOP packages.
The high integration and unique feature sets of the MCP48FXBXX families offer customers flexibility, power and cost savings while simplifying their design efforts. The integrated EEPROM option enables DAC settings to be restored at power-up and reduces microcontroller overhead, while the various shutdown modes significantly reduce the device current consumption for power-critical applications. Additionally, these devices feature low Differential Nonlinearity (DNL) error to sustain monotonic output and low Integral Nonlinearity (INL) error for better linearity.
The MCP48FXBXX DAC families are available now for sampling and volume production in 10-pin MSOP packages, at prices ranging from $0.49 (for the MCP48FVB01) to $1.78 (for the MCP48FEB22) each, in 5,000-unit quantities.
