View Full Version : ADC configuration

11-16-2012, 04:44 AM
Looking for some input on how to configure each ADC input.

I'd like to be able to set:
* voltage reference
* adc resolution
* averaging

I see the function analogReference(uint8_t type), but it does not look to be implemented yet. Same with analogReadRes(unsigned int bits).

I'm working with ADC0_SC2 = ADC_SC2_REFSEL(1); to set the analog referece to 1.2v, but am not sure how it should be used, and how to set each adc channel.

Anyone care to share?

Note that there is only one ADC converter. The various analog input pins connect to it through a multiplexer. So whatever ADC configuration you have set up, applies to all input pins. Note also, there is a calibration procedure that must be done after changing any ADC setting.

There is a little bit of information here on speeding the ADC by changing from the default of 32 averaged readings, to single readings:

This post links to some more extensive example code showing ADC setup and calibration:

Thank you for pointing out these links.

There really needs to be a wiki to document the major functionality and various library functions.
