Description:
Resistor potentiometers can be found in electronic circuits across a wide spectrum of applications. Most typically, they function in a voltage divider configuration in order to execute various types of tasks, such as offset or gain adjust. The two types of potentiometers compared in this application note are the mechanical potentiometer (also called a trimmer potentiometer) and the digital potentiometer.
