Win a Microchip MCP9600 evaluation board

16 August 2017 News

Microchip’s MCP9600 evaluation board is used to digitise the thermocouple EMF voltage to degrees Celsius with ±1°C accuracy.

The device also supports types J, T, N, E, B, S and R. Each of these types is evaluated by replacing the type K thermocouple connector with the corresponding connectors (not included). The evaluation board connects to PC via USB interface. Temperature can be data-logged using Microchip thermal management software graphical user interface (GUI).

The MCP9600 converts thermocouple EMD to degrees Celsius with integrated cold-junction compensation. This device corrects the thermocouple types and outputs +1,5°C accurate temperature data for the selected thermocouple.

The sensor comes with user-programmable registers which provide design flexibility for various temperature sensing applications.

The IC includes a temperature-data digital filter, which minimises the effects of temperature fluctuations, system noise and electromagnetic interference. Its shutdown modes reduce overall system power consumption, while its four user-programmable temperature alert outputs reduce the system microcontroller’s overhead and code space, while further simplifying designs. Finally, the MCP9600 comes in a 5 x 5 mm, 20-lead mQFN package, which further reduces board area.
