Status: In Production
The MCP9601 is a fully integrated thermocouple Electromotive Force (EMF) to degree Celsius converter IC with integrated thermocouple open-circuit and short-circuit detection and cold-junction compensation. The MCP9601 supports 8 thermocouple types (K, J, T, N, S, E, B and R). The MCP9601 provides user-programmable registers, adding design flexibility for various temperature sensing applications. The registers allow user-selectable settings, such as low-power modes for battery-powered applications, an adjustable digital filter for fast transient temperatures and four individually programmable temperature alert outputs, which can be used to detect multiple temperature zones.
The MCP9600 Evaluation Board is used to digitize the Thermocouple EMF voltage to degree Celsius with +/-1C accuracy. Users can easily evaluate the all device features using a Type K thermocouple. The device also supports Types J, T, N, E, B, S and R. Each of these types are evaluated by replacing the Type K Thermocouple connector with the corresponding connectors (not included).
