256-Position Dual Channel I2C Compatible Digital Potentiometer
The AD5243 provides a compact 3 mm x 4.9 mm packaged solution for dual 256-position adjustment applications. This device performs the same electronic adjustment function as a 3-terminal mechanical potentiometer or variable resistor.
Available in four different end-to-end resistance values (2.5 kΩ, 10 kΩ, 50 kΩ, 100 kΩ), these low temperature coefficient devices are ideal for high accuracy and stability variable resistance adjustments. The wiper settings are controllable through the I2C compatible digital interface.
The resistance between the wiper and either end point of the fixed resistor varies linearly with respect to the digital code transferred into the RDAC latch.
Operating from a 2.7 to 5.5 volt power supply and consuming less than 5 µA allows for usage in portable battery operated applications. All parts are guaranteed to operate over the extended automotive temperature range of -40°C to +125°C.

This evaluation board requires an SDP Controller board for connection to the PC. The SDP controller board connects to the PC via USB 2.0. The evaluation board will connect to the SDP controller board. The evaluation board cannot be connected directly to the PC. The evaluation software running on the PC will communicate with the evaluation board through the SDP Controller board.
The SDP Controller board is a separate list item in the ordering guide below (EVAL-SDP-CB1Z). If you have not previously purchased an SDP Controller board, please do so to ensure a full evaluation setup.
