Microchip Technology says its 18bit, delta-sigma ADC for portable measurement in industrial, medical, consumer and automotive applications is the highest-resolution ADC available in a SOT-23 package.

The chip includes a voltage reference and programmable gain amplifier (x1, x2, x4 or x8). The ADC uses an I²C compatible serial interface. The device features very low power consumption—just 155µA at 5V. As such, it's suited for in-the-field products including pressure sensors, weigh scales, handheld meters, multimeters, heart rate monitors, blood glucose meters, weigh scales and fuel gauges.
