Good news everyone,
I am assembling a device with 6 potentiometers connected to ADC inputs of Atmega8a.
I use 10k pots, adding a 330R between GND and pot lead.
On prototyping board,
AREF and AVCC are connected to the same VCC net.
I have added decoupling caps between VCC and GND.
Powered with 9v battery through a voltage regulator.
Now, if I understand the theory right, as you turn any pot, it draws more current to Atmega input, which makes AREF go lower (?)
As a result, any pot affects the result of the conversion.
Please advice what am I doing wrong.
Attaching the diagram of this part of my circuit.
