Product Features

    The evaluation system is comprised of the MCP9904 Temperature Sensor Evaluation Board and the Chip Manager application. The MCP9904 Temperature Sensor Evaluation Board has the following features:

    • Headers for connecting an external diode or CPU/GPU
    • Resistance Error Correction verification using an on-board potentiometer
    • USB-to-SMBus bridge for power and communications

    The user can perform the following operations using the Chip Manager:

    • Viewing and changing register values
    • Saving settings of all registers, allowing for quick configuration at a later time
    • Graphing of any register

Summary

The MCP9904 Temp Sensor Evaluation Board provides the means to demonstrate all of the MCP9904 features, and allows a user to view and modify registers. A user may plot the temperature of the four temperature channels and set alert temperatures associated with those channels. LEDs indicating status information and test points are included to enable system voltages monitoring, using a voltmeter or an oscilloscope. The board requires only one universal serial bus (USB) connection to power the board. The USB-to-SMBus bridge regulates the +5V USB power to +3.3V used by the MCP9904 and other evaluation board circuitry.
