(VEN) - To address applications that demand higher-speed and higher-resolution analog-to-digital conversion, Microchip Technology Inc. announced 12 new Successive Approximation Register (SAR) Analog-to-Digital Converters (ADCs) along with a companion differential amplifier designed specifically for the new portfolio of SAR ADCs.

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

Designed to operate in high temperatures and high electromagnetic environments, the MCP331x1(D)-xx family includes the industry’s only one million samples per second (Msps) fully AEC-Q100-qualified 16-bit SAR, providing the reliability required for automotive and industrial applications. The MCP6D11 differential amplifier provides a low-distortion, high-accuracy interface to achieve the full performance of the ADC within systems.

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