Analog to Digital Conversion in ARDUINO

Analog to digital conversion module of ARDUINO UNO has 6 input ports. The number of the port varies with your ARDUINO model but the coding remains the same. The analog reading in the analog inputs are converted into corresponding 10bit(0-1023). ARDUINO developers have made such an option that you can print anything and see it on the Serial monitor. This example demonstrates analog input usage by reading an analog sensor on analog pin 0 and turning on and off a [...]

Analog to Digital Converter (ADC) in PIC Microcontroller

ADC module of PIC microcontroller have usually 5 input for 28 pin devices and 8 inputs for 40 pin devices. The conversion of analog signal to PIC ADC module results in corresponding 10 bit digital number. PIC ADC module has software selectable high and low voltage reference input to some combination of VDD, VSS, RA2 and RA3. In the following example project we will convert analog input to channel 1 to 10 bit digital number with low voltage reference (Vref-) 0v and [...]
