Need to add analog inputs? This chip will add 8 channels of 10-bit analog input to your microcontroller or microcomputer project. It's super easy to use, and uses SPI so only 4 pins are required. Adafruit chose this chip as a great accompaniment to the Raspberry Pi computer, because its fun to have analog inputs but the Pi does not have an ADC.

Adafruit have a tutorial and code example for wiring this chip to a Raspberry Pi

Customer Reviews

  1. Review by Dale verified purchaser

    This is great for adding Analogue inputs to the Raspberry Pi. All you need are a few resistors and you are good to go. (Posted on 9/08/2018)

  2. Review by Amos verified purchaser

    The MPC3008 is a low-cost, 8 channel analog to digital converter. The 3008 can handle 8 different analog inputs and is accessed using the SPI bus or GPIO pins on your Raspberry Pi. (Disclaimer: I am a Raspberry Pi person, but this chip can be used on any other micro controller or microcomputer, it is not Pi specific.) Using this to read the output of a TMP36 temperature sensor for example is dead easy. If you want to get started playing around with various analog sensors, the MCP3008 will quickly become your best friend! (Posted on 16/06/2018)

  3. Review by Rhys verified purchaser

    Easy to use with up to 8 analogue sensors (Posted on 4/05/2018)

  4. Review by John verified purchaser

    Easy to use ADC. A simple way of getting data from an analog sensor into a Raspberry Pi through SPI. (Posted on 20/09/2017)

  5. Review by Jimmy verified purchaser

    Performed exactly as spec. (Posted on 26/09/2016)
