Make use of the PIC analog to digital converter
posted November 10 2010 17:00.48 by Giorgos Lazaridis

Here is a very nice blog entry for those who want to use the Analog to Digital module of PIC microprocessors. Once more Embedded Lab, which seems to be quite active, posted this article.
What they did, is to connect a voltage divider made with a simple potentiometer, to the RA1 pin of the PIC16F688 microcontroller from Microchip. This pin is connected with the first input of the analog to digital converter module of the chip. The converted 10-bit digital value is then shown unscaled on a 16 by 2 LCD display. Very well documentary article with all the necessary theory, schematics and software for you to test. View the entry in this link.

    • Sure it is. But an example is always helpful

    • It's also a good idea to look over Microchip's Application Notes for setting up ADC on the PIC. There's quite a few more useful configuration settings available then is mentioned in the linked article.
