MAX138

3 1/2 Digit ADC with Reference, Charge Pump, and Direct LED Drivers

Operates with Single +2.5V to +7V Supply, Accepts Bipolar Inputs


Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.

Description

The MAX138/MAX139 are 3 ½ digit A/D converters (ADCs) with on-board LCD (MAX138) and LED (MAX139) display drivers. The MAX138/MAX139 also contain a charge-pump voltage inverter. The charge-pump inverter allows the MAX138/MAX139 to measure both positive and negative input voltages while operating from a single power-supply voltage from +2.5V to +7V. The operating circuits of the MAX138/MAX139 are similar to those of the ICL7136 and ICL7137 respectively, except the MAX138/MAX139 have an internal oscillator and an external charge-pump capacitor connected to pins 38 and 40.

MAX140 is a low segment-current version of the MAX139 intended for use with low-current LED displays.
