Description: The MCP3002 has a 10-bit analog to digital converter (ADC) with a simple to use SPI interface. Use this IC if your microcontroller does not have an ADC or have enough ADC lines. A great chip when you need to add additional ADC lines.

Features:

  • 2.7V to 5.5V supply
  • 10-bit resolution
  • 8-pin DIP package
  • 3 wire SPI interface
  • Up to 75,000 samples per second
  • Low power shutdown

Works great

It’s easy to use, the datasheet is excellent, and it is much faster that the built-in ADC on the Arduino. Just note that that it needs a low resistance source (see pages 11-12 of the datasheet for details), so use an op-amp if your source has high resistance, especially if you’re sampling very quickly.
