I require a bit of analogue electronics level shifting guidance.
I am interfacing to an old circuit with a pot that is powered with -5V and +5V. Therefore the output swing will be 10V (-5V to +5V). I would like to feed the pot Vout voltage into a 5V ADC pin on a micro.
Is the preferred method to read and level shift this signal down to 0V to 5V, is to put this signal through a non-inverting op-amp, that is powered by -12V to +12V, and adjust the feedback resistors, so Vout is half Vin.
Look forward to any input, or if another circuit design is recommend.
