MCP3008-I/P MCP3008 8-Channel 10-Bit A/D Converters SPI IC


Add Analog Inputs to your next Microcontroller or Microprocessor Project!
The MCP3008 is an 8-Channel 10-bit ADC Analog-to-Digital (A/D) converter IC, so it can measure 8 different analog voltage with a resolution of 10-bits. The chip comes complete with on-board sample and hold circuitry and measures analog voltage values from 0-1023. The values are relayed to a microcontroller or microprocessor via SPI communication. 

The MCP3008 operates over a wide voltage range of 2.7V -  5.5V. The MCP3008, based around it's low current design, is commonly used with a standby current of as little as 5 nA and typical active current of around 320 uA.
