The MAX5471/MAX5472/MAX5474/MAX5475 linear-taper digital potentiometers function as mechanical potentiometers, but replace the mechanics with a simple 3-wire up/down digital interface. These digital potentiometers feature nonvolatile memory (EEPROM) to return the wiper to its previously stored position upon power-up.
The MAX5471/MAX5472 are 2-terminal, variable resistors in 6-pin SOT23 packages. The MAX5474/MAX5475 are 3-terminal potentiometers in 8-pin SOT23 packages.
The MAX5471/MAX5474 have an end-to-end resistance of 50kΩ, and the MAX5472/MAX5475 have an end-to-end resistance of 100kΩ. All of these devices have 32 wiper positions, a low ratiometric temperature coefficient (5ppm/°C), and all operate from a single +2.7V to +5.25V supply. Each device is guaranteed over the extended -40°C to +85°C temperature range.
