|Innovative 16-bit Input/Output Expanders from Microchip Technology|
CHANDLER, Ariz - Microchip Technology Inc., today introduced two 16-bit input/output (I/O)
expanders. The MCP23017 is the only 16-bit I/O expander that supports standard (100 kHz), fast (400 kHz) and
high-speed (up to 1.7 MHz) I2C™ communications. The MCP23S17 features SPI™ clock speeds up to 10 MHz for higher
These unique solutions make it easy and cost effective for designers to upgrade or
enhance their current microcontroller-based systems that require additional I/O. The MCP23017 and MCP23S17 provide
system I/O expansion via existing microcontroller serial ports, saving development time and cost by eliminating the
need to redesign the complete system with a higher I/O microcontroller. The devices can support a broad range of
applications with low- and high-bandwidth requirements. Hardware-address pins allow cascading of multiple devices in
one system--up to 128 bits of I/O can be added to existing systems, providing ample design flexibility.
The MCP23017 and MCP23S17 operate down to 1.8 volts and have a standby mode where current consumption is less
than 2 microamps. Separate interrupt outputs for each bank of 8 I/O ports can be utilized for system partitioning.
Pins can drive standard LEDs directly (25 milliamps sink/source capability per I/O). These devices complement the
Company's existing 8-bit MCP23008 and MCP23S08 I/O expanders.
Samples and volume production are
available today. Packaging is lead (Pb)-free, including 28-pin PDIP, SOIC, SSOP and 6x6 millimeter QFN options. The
MCP23017 is priced at $0.86 each in 1,000-unit quantities for the 28-pin PDIP. The MCP23S17 is priced at $0.91 each
in 1,000-unit quantities for the 28-pin PDIP. See Microchip's Web site for complete details, or contact any
Microchip sales representative or authorized Microchip distributor around the world.
