2.375V to 5.25V, 4-Wire Touch-Screen Controller

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MXB7843 is an industry-standard 4-wire touch-screen controller. It contains a 12-bit sampling analog-to-digital converter (ADC) with a synchronous serial interface and low on-resistance switches for driving resistive touch screens. The MXB7843 uses an external reference. The MXB7843 can make absolute or ratiometric measurements. The MXB7843 has two auxiliary ADC inputs. All analog inputs are fully ESD protected, eliminating the need for external TransZorb™ devices.

The MXB7843 is guaranteed to operate with a single 2.375V to 5.25V supply voltage. In shutdown mode, the typical power consumption is reduced to under 0.5µW, while the typical power consumption at 125ksps throughput and a 2.7V supply is 650µW.

Low-power operation makes the MXB7843 ideal for battery-operated systems, such as personal digital assistants with resistive touch screens and other portable equipment. The MXB7843 is available in 16-pin QSOP and TSSOP packages, and is guaranteed over the -40°C to +85°C temperature range.
