The Microchip Technology MCP3008 has 8 successive approximation 10-bit Analog-to-Digital (A/D) converters with on-board sample and hold circuitry. An excellent option for adding analog inputs to a Raspberry Pi or similar device. Communication with the device is accomplished using a simple serial interface compatible with the SPI protocol. The MCP3008 operates over a broad voltage range (2.7V - 5.5V). Offered here in a 16 pin PDIP format for easy soldering and breadboarding.
