Microchip "does the math" in converter IC for thermocouple design

August 31, 2015 OpenSystems Media

At Sensors Expo earlier this year I had the chance to sit down with John Austin, Product Marketing Manager with Microchip’s Analog and Interface division to discuss the general state of temperature sensing today and challenges facing thermocouple engineers in particular. During the meeting John gave me a sneak peak into the company’s MCP9600 converter IC – publicly announced earlier today – and overviewed some of the its unique features, such as an integrated temperature sensor, analog-to-digital converter (ADC), and math engines that support the standard K, J, T, N, S, E, B, and R thermocouple types to ease the design of temperature-measurement solutions.

In this video interview, John provides a brief introduction and then walks us through some of the development capabilities afforded by the MCP9600 Thermocouple IC Evaluation Board and associated GUI.
