FUNCTIONAL BLOCK DIAGRAM
The AD5291/AD5292, members of the Analog Devices, Inc.,
DigiPOT+ family of potentiometers, are single-channel, 256-/
1024-position digital potentiometers1 that combine industry
leading variable resistor performance with nonvolatile memory
(NVM) in a compact package. These devices are capable of
operating across a wide voltage range; supporting both dual
supply operation at ±10.5 V to ±16.5 V and single supply
operation at +21 V to +33 V, while ensuring less than 1% end-
to-end resistor tolerance (R-tolerance) error and offering
20-time programmable (20-TP) memory.
The guaranteed industry-leading low resistor tolerance error
feature simplifies open-loop applications as well as precision
calibration and tolerance matching applications.
1 The terms digital potentiometer and RDAC are used interchangeably.
The AD5291/AD5292 device wiper settings are controllable
through the SPI digital interface. Unlimited adjustments are
allowed before programming the resistance value into the
|20-TP memory. The AD5291/AD5292 do not require any
external voltage supply to facilitate fuse blow and there are
20 opportunities for permanent programming. During 20-TP
activation, a permanent blow fuse command freezes the wiper
position (analogous to placing epoxy on a mechanical trimmer).
The AD5291/AD5292 are available in a compact 14-lead TSSOP
package. The part is guaranteed to operate over the extended
industrial temperature range of −40°C to +105°C.
