This application note presents an application demonstrating the mixed-signal features of the MAXQ7654. Based on the high-performance, 16-bit RISC MAXQ20 core, the MAXQ7654 offers a 16-channel, 12-bit, analog-to-digital converter (ADC), and dual, 12-bit, digital-to-analog converters (DACs). In addition to analog components, the MAXQ7654 has a wealth of digital peripherals, including a CAN controller, an SPI interface, and four 8/16-bit timers usable as counters or programmed for pulse-width modulation. With 128kB of code space, the MAXQ7654 can handle many embedded mixed-signal applications.
