 Product Description

This digital pentiometer wires up just like a normal potentiometer but allows you to use serial signals to "turn the knob". Another handy feature of digital potentiometers is that becuase they aren't controlled mechanically, they don't have a pre-determined sweep profile. In other words, depending on the way you write your code the potentiometer can 'sweep' in a linear fashion, a logarithmic fashion, or according to any other profile you like.
