A data-acquisition system on a chip

A data-acquisition system on a chip

Multifunction data-acquisition systems have been around for a long time as stand-alone instruments, plug-in cards, cabled computer peripherals, and embedded in systems. Such systems are often designed with separate ADCs, DACs, and digital I/O devices. Many microcontrollers include ADCs and DACs, but that locks you into using that device. The AD5592R from Analog Devices combines …

Microprocessors Garland

Microprocessors Garland

1. Presentation For some time now, I think the commercially available garlands, are too boring, too repetitive with their two or three alternations of colored bulbs. I wanted to create a truly personalized one without ruin me either. Two ideas immediately came: – a microprocessor to control all the lights, but at the cost of …
