Simple Digital Potentiometer with DS1869

Posted on Sep 13, 2012

The experimenter's pot is a solid state potentiometer using Dallas semiconductor?s DS1869 and National?s LM78L05 two electrolytic capacitor two small push button switch and two optional Molex connector. this project is very useful especially in finding the right value of resistor in your experiments, you can attach this circuit to your next project that uses a pot or trimmer cause there are three types of DS1869 these are: DS1869-10 which is 10K. DS1869-50 a 50K version. DS1869-100 the 100K version

As you can see, the circuit is powered from a 9V power supply (actually any 9V power source will work, as long as the current rating is not less than 25mA) stepped down to 5V by the LM78L05 IC and two filter capacitor one for the input and one for the output, the wiper arm?s position is stepped by pressing SW2 for adding the resistance of wiper arm to high terminal and SW1 for decreasing just like an ordinary mechanical potentiometer adding the resistance to high terminal decreases the resistance to low terminal. Parts List Parts List: C1 10uF/16V Electrolytic capacitor C2 0.01uF/50V Ceramic capacitor U1 LM78L05 U2 DS1869 (see notes) SW1,SW2 Small push button switch Notes: The maximum wiper current allowed through the DS1869 is only 1 milliamps. There are three types of DS1869 DS1869-10 use this chip if you want to make a 10K version DS1869-50 for a 50K version pot. DS1869-100 for the 100K version
