Microchip announced a new power monitoring IC, the MCP39F501. This device is a highly integrated, single-phase power-monitoring IC designed for real-time measurement of AC power. It includes two 24-bit delta-sigma ADCs, a 16-bit calculation engine, EEPROM and a flexible two-wire interface.
The MCP39F501 power monitoring IC allows designers to add power monitoring to their applications with minimal firmware development. Its performance enables designs capable of 0.1% error over a wider dynamic range and superior light load measurement versus current competing solutions.
