The MCP9600 Thermocouple interface

The MCP9600 Thermocouple interface

Martin Cooke describes at Elektor Magazine about a Microchip Thermocouple.

The MCP9600 from Microchip is a single chip solution to convert thermocouple output EMF to degrees Celsius. The chip includes integrated cold-junction compensation and corrects thermocouple non-linearity for the eight most popular types of thermocouple.


User-programmable registers in the MCP9600 allow the chip to be configured for various applications including a low-power mode for battery operation and adjustable digital filter characteristics for fast-changing transient temperature sensing. There are also four programmable temperature alert outputs which can be used to detect multiple temperature zones.
