CAT5133: Digital Potentiometer (POT), 128-Tap, with Increment Decrement Interface

  • The CAT5133 is a high voltage digital POT integrated with EEPROM memory and control logic to operate in a similar manner to a mechanical potentiometer. The digital POT consists of a series of resistive elements connected between two externally accessible end points. The tap points between each resistive element are connected to the wiper outputs with CMOS switches. A 7-bit wiper control register (WCR) independently controls the wiper tap switches for the potentiometer. Associated with the control register is a 7-bit nonvolatile memory data register (DR) used for storing the wiper settings. Changing the value of the wiper control register or storing that value into the nonvolatile memory is performed via a 3­input Increment-Decrement interface.

    The CAT5133 comes with 2 voltage supply inputs: VCC (digital supply voltage) input and V+ (analog bias supply) input. Providing separate Digital and Analog inputs allow the potentiometer terminals to be as much as 10 volts above VCC and 16 volts above ground.

    The CAT5133 can be used as a potentiometer or as a two terminal, variable resistor. It is designed for circuit level or system level adjustments in a wide variety of applications.
    On power-up, the contents of the nonvolatile data register (DR) are transferred to the wiper control register (WCR) and the wiper is positioned to that location. The CAT5133 is shipped with the DR programmed to position 64.
