Microchip MCP3901 Analog Front End for Metering Applications

Microchip Technology introduced the MCP3901 Analog Front End (AFE) for metering applications. The MCP3901 AFE features high-accuracy, dual 16-/24-bit Delta-Sigma Analog-to-Digital Converters (ADCs) with up to 91 dB Signal to Noise and Distortion (SINAD), internal Programmable Gain Amplifiers (PGAs) and voltage reference, phase-delay compensation, and a modulator output block that enables more precise measurements than competitive solutions. The MCP3901 AFE is available in a 20-pin SSOP package, for $1.42 each in 10,000-unit quantities.
