As the industry’s only two-channel device with 16-bit power measurement, the PAC1932 can measure without host intervention for 17 minutes, relieving developers from adjusting voltage or current range to measure power and energy. The devices include two 16-bit Analog-to-Digital Converters (ADCs) that can measure voltage and current simultaneously, enabling developers to extract a true power measurement. As a result, developers can better design systems to efficiently save power.
“As applications continue to seek ways to reduce power consumption, precision DC power measurement has grown as a key element for energy savings,” said Bryan Liddiard, vice president of Microchip’s Mixed Signal and Linear Division. “Just as the four-channel PAC1934 improved power measurement for Windows 10 devices, the new two- and three-channel power monitoring ICs offer improved power measurement for low-voltage, high-power applications in markets such as embedded computing and networking.”
