DESCRIPTION
The X9241 integrates four nonvolatile E2POT digitally
controlled potentiometers on a monolithic CMOS micro-
circuit.
The X9241 contains four resistor arrays, each com-
posed of 63 resistive elements. Between each element
and at either end are tap points accessible to the wiper
elements. The position of the wiper element on the array
is controlled by the user through the two-wire serial bus
interface.
Each resistor array has associated with it a wiper counter
register and four 8-bit data registers that can be directly
written and read by the user. The contents of the wiper
counter register control the position of the wiper on the
resistor array.
The data register may be read or written by the user. The
contents of the data registers can be transferred to the
wiper counter register to position the wiper. The current
wiper position can be transferred to any one of its
associated data registers.
The arrays may be cascaded to form resistive elements
with 127, 190 or 253 taps.

PIN DESCRIPTIONS
Host Interface Pins
Serial Clock (SCL)
The SCL input is used to clock data into and out of the
X9241.
Serial Data (SDA)
SDA is a bidirectional pin used to transfer data into and
out of the device. It is an open drain output and may be
wire-ORed with any number of open drain or open
collector outputs. An open drain output requires the use
of a pull-up resistor. For selecting typical values, refer
to the guidelines for calculating typical values on the
bus pull-up resistors graph.
Address
The Address inputs are used to set the least significant
4 bits of the 8-bit slave address. A match in the slave
address serial data stream must be made with the
Address input in order to initiate communication with the
X9241.
Potentiometer Pins
VH (VH0 – VH3), VL (VL0 – VL3)
The VH and VL inputs are equivalent to the terminal
connections on either end of a mechanical potentiom-
eter.
VW (VW0 – VW3)
The wiper outputs are equivalent to the wiper output of
a mechanical potentiometer.

PRINCIPLES OF OPERATION
The X9241 is a highly integrated microcircuit incorporat-
ing four resistor arrays, their associated registers and
counters and the serial interface logic providing direct
communication between the host and the E2POT poten-
tiometers.
Serial Interface
The X9241 supports a bidirectional bus oriented proto-
col. The protocol defines any device that sends data
onto the bus as a transmitter and the receiving device as
the receiver. The device controlling the transfer is a
master and the device being controlled is the slave. The
master will always initiate data transfers and provide the
clock for both transmit and receive operations. There-
fore, the X9241 will be considered a slave device in all
applications.
Clock and Data Conventions
Data states on the SDA line can change only during
SCL LOW periods (tLOW). SDA state changes during
SCL HIGH are reserved for indicating start and stop
conditions.
Start Condition
All commands to the X9241 are preceded by the start
condition, which is a HIGH to LOW transition of SDA
while SCL is HIGH (tHIGH). The X9241 continuously
monitors the SDA and SCL lines for the start condition
and will not respond to any command until this condition
is met.
Stop Condition
All communications must be terminated by a stop con-
dition, which is a LOW to HIGH transition of SDA while
SCL is HIGH.
