DESCRIPTION
determined by the logic state of the U/D input. The CS
input is used to select the device.

The CAT5115 is a single digitally programmable


potentiometer (DPP) designed as a electronic
replacement for mechanical potentiometers and trim
pots. Ideal for automated adjustments on high volume
production lines, they are also well suited for
applications where equipment requiring periodic
adjustment is either difficult to access or located in a
hazardous or remote environment.

The digitally programmable potentiometer can be


used as a three-terminal resistive divider or as a
two-terminal variable resistor. DPPs bring variability and
programmability to a wide variety of applications
including control, parameter adjustments, and
signal processing.

The CAT5115 contains a 32-tap series resistor array


connected between two terminals RH and RL. An up/
down counter and decoder that are controlled by three
input pins, determines which tap is connected to the
wiper, RW. The wiper is always set to the mid point, tap
15 at power up. The tap position is not stored in memory.
Wiper-control of the CAT5115 is accomplished with
three input control pins, CS, U/D, and INC. The INC
input increments the wiper in the direction which is

For a pin-compatible device that recalls a stored tap


position on power-up refer to the CAT5114 data sheet.

PIN DESCRIPTIONS
INC
INC: Increment Control Input

CS
CS: Chip Select

The INC input moves the wiper in the up or down


direction determined by the condition of the U/D input.

The chip select input is used to activate the control input


of the CAT5115 and is active low. When in a high
state, activity on the INC and U/D inputs will not
affect or change the position of the wiper.

U/D
D: Up/Down Control Input
The U/D input controls the direction of the wiper
movement. When in a high state and CS is low, any highto-low transition on INC will cause the wiper to move one
increment toward the RH terminal. When in a low state
and CS is low, any high-to-low transition on INC will
cause the wiper to move one increment towards the
RL terminal.

DEVICE OPERATION
The CAT5115 operates like a digitally controlled
potentiometer with RH and RL equivalent to the high
and low terminals and RW equivalent to the mechanical
potentiometer's wiper. There are 32 available tap
positions including the resistor end points, RH and RL.
There are 31 resistor elements connected in series
between the RH and RL terminals. The wiper terminal is
connected to one of the 32 taps and controlled by three
inputs, INC, U/D and CS. These inputs control a five-bit
up/down counter whose output is decoded to select the
wiper position.

RH: High End Potentiometer Terminal


RH is the high end terminal of the potentiometer. It is not
required that this terminal be connected to a potential
greater than the RL terminal. Voltage applied to the RH
terminal cannot exceed the supply voltage, VCC or go
below ground, GND.

With CS set LOW the CAT5115 is selected and will


respond to the U/D and INC inputs. HIGH to LOW
transitions on INC wil increment or decrement the
wiper (depending on the state of the U/D input and fivebit counter). The wiper, when at either fixed terminal,
acts like its mechanical equivalent and does not move
beyond the last position. When the CAT5115 is powereddown, the wiper position is reset. When power is restored,
the counter is set to the mid point, tap 15.

RW: Wiper Potentiometer Terminal


RW is the wiper terminal of the potentiometer. Its position
on the resistor array is controlled by the control inputs, INC,
U/D and CS. Voltage applied to the RW terminal cannot
exceed the supply voltage, VCC or go below ground, GND.
RL: Low End Potentiometer Terminal
RL is the low end terminal of the potentiometer. It is not
required that this terminal be connected to a potential
less than the RH terminal. Voltage applied to the RL
terminal cannot exceed the supply voltage, VCC or go
below ground, GND. R L and R H are electrically
interchangeable.
