Channel Sequencing and Context Saving Using the ADC with Computation and Context Switching Module
The Analog-to-Digital Converter with Computation and Context Switching module allows the conversion of an analog input signal into either a 10-bit or 12-bit binary representation of that signal. The ADC uses analog inputs that are multiplexed into a single Sample-and-Hold (S/H) circuit. The output of the Sample-and-Hold circuit is connected to the input of the converter. The converter generates either a 10-bit or 12-bit binary result via successive approximation, and stores the conversion result into the ADC result registers. The ADC’s computation block provides hardware-driven computation features, such as averaging or low-pass filtering. The context switching block allows for up to four analog inputs to be sampled, converted, and have computation features performed automatically, without the need to reconfigure the ADC registers for each input.
