TMIK024 - ADC Click by MikroElektronika
ADC Click is an add-on board in the mikroBUS™ form factor. It includes a 12-bit Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC) MCP3204 device that features 50k samples/second, 4 input channels, and low-power consumption (500nA typical standby, 2µA max). In addition, this board uses the industry-standard SPI communication interface. It is small in size and features convenient screw terminals for easier connections. By default, the board is set to use 3.3V of power. However, to use it with 5V systems, just place the PWR SEL SMD jumper in the 5V position.
