I always like to receive these cut-down product releases from the folks at Microchip, because they cut out all of the waffle (you can click here to see the full-up version with all of the waffle) and get straight down to the nitty-gritty details as follows…
Packaging, pricing, and availability
- Low-power, low-cost DAC features a 1.8-5.5V wide operating voltage range, and is offered in a 6-pin SC70 package.
- Ideal for applications in the automotive, audio and industrial markets, such as portable, handheld battery-operated products, and applications such as set-point or offset trimming and sensitive mechanical-trim pot replacement.
- Extended temperature range of -40 to +125 degrees Celsius allows for use in high-temperature automotive and industrial applications. Additionally, the small SC70 packaging allows for more portable and space-constrained consumer applications.
- Provides 65 taps, through an I2C interface, including taps to both full-scale and zero-scale, providing additional functionality.
The MCP47A1 DAC is available today for sampling and volume production, at $0.42 each in 5,000-unit quantities. It is offered in a 6-pin SC70 package.
