Single/Dual, +15 V/±5 V, 256-Position, I2C-Compatible Digital Potentiometer
Wiper position programming defaults to midscale at system power-on. When powered, the VR wiper position is programmed by an I2C-compatible, 2-wire serial data interface. The AD5280/ AD5282 feature sleep mode programmability. This allows any level of preset in power-up and is an alternative to a costly EEPROM solution. Both parts have additional programmable logic outputs that enable users to drive digital loads, logic gates, LED drivers, and analog switches in their system.
The AD5280/AD5282 are available in thin, surface-mounted 14-lead TSSOP and 16-lead TSSOP. All parts are guaranteed to operate over the extended industrial temperature range of −40°C to +85°C. For 3-wire SPI-compatible interface applica-tions, see the AD5260/AD5262 product information on www.analog.com
1 Assert shutdown and program the device during power-up, then deassert the shutdown to achieve the desired preset level.
2 The terms digital potentiometer, VR, and RDAC are used interchangeably.
