February 09, 2012 — Analog Devices

Devices has introduced a series of single-channel digital potentiometers that provide a variety of resolution, interface and resistance options, allowing system designers to select the most suitable device for a wide range of consumer and instrumentation applications. The AD511x series of digital potentiometers offers excellent resistance tolerance, high current density and faster nonvolatile memory than competing devices. The new devices are also low power and easy-to-use.


AD511x Digital Potentiometer Series Key Features:



• Single channel, 128-/64-/32-tap digital potentiometers 


• 5k ohm, 10k ohm, 80k ohm nominal resistance options 


• I2C, Up/Down and Push-Button interfaces 


• Maximum ±8% nominal resistance tolerance 


• 5 ppm/°C Temperature Coefficient (potentiometer mode) 


• Low power: Idd = 750nA typical 


• –40°C to +125°C operating temperature range
