Stellaris ADS1118 Tutorial

Stellaris ADS1118 Tutorial

Stellaris ADS1118 tutorial will show how a Stellaris LM3S6965 is interfaced with a ADS1118 16 bit ADC using the SPI bus. The ADS1118 was chosen as it can be used to interface thermocouples, in this example only the temperature data from the on-die temperature sensor will be read. The thermocouple interfacing will be covered at View more…

Microcontroller GPIO Protection Tutorial

Microcontroller GPIO protection is an essential element of any circuit design. GPIO ports generally have maximum voltage and current ratings, if these are exceeded it can result in the microcontroller being damaged or completely destroyed. Therefore it is important to use external circuitry to protect the ports from excessive voltage, or excessive current being sourced View more…
