Power Management Products
Microchip offers a wide range of power management solutions which include CPU/system supervisors, voltage detectors, linear regulators, switching regulators, voltage references, charge pump DC-to-DC converters, power MOSFET drivers, battery management, and hot swap controllers.
Amplifiers / Comparators
Amplifiers and comparators are available for a wide variety of application needs. Microchip's operational amplifiers include single, dual or quad amplifiers in space-saving packages. These devices operate down to 1.8V and feature rail-to-rail inputs and outputs for improved system performance and low current consumption for extended battery life. Additionally, several comparators are available that feature low supply voltage (1.8) and low supply current (1 µA) requirements. These push-pull and open-drain comparators are designed for very low power single-supply applications.
Mixed Signal Products
The mixed signal product line from Microchip offers a broad array of analog-to-digital converters and includes digital potentiometers, frequency-to-voltage/voltage-to-frequency converters, and digital-to-analog converters.
Microchip's interface products include CAN communication devices, serial peripherals, infrared communication devices, LIN bus transceivers, and LCD drivers.
Microchip offers EEPROM products in a multitude of configurations. Microchip has the memory required for most application requirements with several variations of I²C™, Microwire, and SPI compatible devices to choose from.
