Few Components Needed for an ESD-Protected Solid-State Potentiometer (EPOT) System with Two Pushbuttons


Abstract: This design note shows how a simple circuit uses two pushbuttons and three tiny ICs to implement a debounced, ESD-protected solid-state potentiometer (EPOT). The design features the MAX5161digital potentiometer, the MAX6308 programmable reset IC, and the MAX6817 switch debouncer.
