Fastest 18-Bit SAR ADC unveiled

The AD7960 is an 18-bit, 5 MSPS charge redistribution successive approximation (SAR), analog-to-digital converter (ADC). The SAR architecture allows unmatched performance both in noise and in linearity. The AD7960 contains a low power, high speed, 18-bit sampling ADC, an internal conversion clock and an internal reference buffer. On the CNV± edge, the AD7960 samples the voltage difference between the IN+ an ...

Using the ChipKIT Basic I/O Shield With Analog RGB Strip LEDs

A few months ago I wrote a blog post about the chipKIT Basic I/O Shield and used Analog RBG Strips to demonstrate the the open drain FETs. This post is to give details on how to wire up the strip LEDs to the I/O Shield. You should already know how to program MPIDE before using this Instructable. Step 1: Gather Materials Gather your materials: Strip of RGB LEDs (12V) usually, you can get them fairly cheaply ...

How-to use PWM to Generate Analog (or Analogue) Voltage in Digital Circuits

Many times, designers are faced with the need of generating analogue or analog voltage levels in purely digital circuits. Although the market provides today a very broad range of dedicated digital-to-analogue converters, putting such a device in the schematic has a negative impact on the overall cost of the system. 1. Introduction In the first part of this article (Generating Analog Voltage with Digital Cir ...

Generating Analog Voltage with Digital Circuit

he purpose of this article is how to generate analog voltage with digital circuit. Although the market provides today a very broad range of dedicated digital-to-analogue converters, putting such a device in the schematic has a negative impact on the overall cost of the system. There are however, cheap methods of creating the required voltage levels, and even of generating pseudo-analogue signals, using pure ...

Analog Devices AD587 10V Reference

Voltage references are a humble piece of hardware, their sole function is to provide a stable, known voltage. This constant, known value of voltage can then be used as a reference for ADCs and DACs as well as provide a precision current source.   I recently got hold of an Analog Devices AD587KN high precision 10.000V reference chip. AD587KN 10V precision referenceThis model of chip has an output value ...

Trinket Powered Analog Meter Clock

Overview Trinket lends itself very well to building clock projects, its small and easy to hide behind a larger display. And clocks don't need a lot of logic, this example only has maybe 20 lines of code. Adding a digital display via I2C is possible using seven segment or character-based displays (with the library code posted for other projects). This project interfaces Trinket to the the Adafruit DS1307 rea ...
