Microchip?s SAR ADCs Enable High-Speed and High-Resolution Analog-to-Digital Conversion in Harsh Environments

As the industry?s only 1 Msps fully AEC-Q100-qualified 16-bit SAR, the 12 new devices are designed to operate in high temperatures and electromagnetic environments.

CHANDLER, AZ. Microchip Technology Inc. just announced 12 new Successive Approximation Register Analog-to-Digital Converters along with a companion differential amplifier designed specifically for the new portfolio of SAR ADCs.

These devices support a wide digital I/O interface voltage range, which allows it to interface with most host devices. The MCP331x1(D)-xx family contains both single-ended and differential input voltage measurement options. The AEC-Q100-qualified family provides reliable performance across harsh environments.

Microchip’s MCP6D11 differential amplifier is designed specifically to address this challenge, providing a low-distortion and high-accuracy interface to properly drive the ADC.

“The ADC market and applications are pushing toward higher resolution, higher speed and higher accuracy,” said Microchip’s vice president of mixed-signal and linear business unit, Bryan J. Liddiard. “In addition, lower power consumption and smaller packaging are also tremendously important, and these products address all these demands.”
