Microchip Technology announced the release of the MCP37Dx1-80 family, the company’s second ADC offering. Further, it is also the company’s first offering to combine 80 MSPS in 12-, 14- and 16-bit resolutions; and integrated digital features for a higher temperature range. This includes Automotive Electronics Council (AEC) Q100.
“Our latest ADCs meet growing customer demand for robust devices that can be used in high-temperature applications and offer integrated digital processing functions that simplify design and reduce overall development costs,” said vice president, Mixed-Signal and Linear division at Microchip Bryan Liddiard, in a press release. “The MCP37Dx1-80 family joins Microchip’s 200 MSPS ADCs to expand our high-speed offering into a much broader range of system design concepts.”
Per the release, key ADC device features include:
- The ADCs operate at a temperature range of -40°C to +125°C temperature range. This makes them ideal for demanding applications such as Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), autonomous driving, Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites and test and measurement equipment.
- Qualified to AEC-Q100 grade 1 standards. This allows the ADCs to play a vital role in ADAS, autonomous driving, low earth orbit satellites, and test and measurement equipment.
- Decimation filters improve signal-to-noise ratio (SNR)
- DDC for support of communication designs
- Noise-shaping requantizer
- compact 8mm x 8mm 121-pin ball grid array (BGA) with a 0.65mm pitch and a built-in reference decoupling capacitor.
Evaluation boards that include a GUI and firmware are available for Microchip’s MCP37Dx1-80 ADCs.
