Next Livestream on Youtube is on May 9th, 9:00 a.m. PDT/ 12:00 p.m. EDT

 

Title: Bring analog signals into the digital world with PIC and AVR MCUs

 

Summary:

Reading analog signals from the real world and then turning them into digital signals that a microcontroller (MCU) can understand is one of the most difficult tasks you will face when developing MCU-based sensor applications. Watch this Livestream to learn about some different techniques that you can use with Microchip's 8-bit PIC and AVR MCUs to significantly improve their accuracy and speed when reading analog signals.

 

Key Takeaways:

  • Basic understanding of the types of peripherals that you can use with 8-bit MCUs to read analog signals, including:
    • Analog-to-Digital Converters (ADC), Comparators (CMP), Zero-Crossing Detectors (ZCD)
  • Learn why ADCs are perfect for hardware filtering applications
  • Find out why comparators are great for applications where speed is key
