    Hi all

    i am as green as it gets with the microcontroller side of things. My field is in the PLC/SCADA game, however i am currently completing my studies and Microcontrollers is one of my subjects.

    I have what i am sure is a fairly simple question.

    i need to use the above chip in a design. I was considering using it for calibration purposes, ie, take a 0 - 10vdc regulate it then pass it through the MCP4911. the goal is to fine tune the signal which will allow you to calibrate the input, say a temperature chip that.

    the design is not the problem, it is the programming. i would like to use SPI between the MCP4911 and the PIC.

    the question i have is, has anyone used this chip in this configuration before, is this the correct application of the chip and does anyone have a sample code of the programming of the chip?

    any help would be great.
