Stellaris ADS1118 tutorial will show how a Stellaris LM3S6965 is interfaced with a ADS1118 16 bit ADC using the SPI bus.
In this tutorial the Stellaris LM3S6965 Evaluation board will be used to demonstrate a simple PWM (Pulse Width Modulated) example. This is part of a larger project I am working on, which is not covered in this tutorial but will be posted at a later date.
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.
