The successive approximation ADC in the PIC24 family and an external serial DAC are covered and example applications are explained.
After reading this chapter, you will be able to:
Describe the differences between sampling and quantization and the differences among ADCs, DACs, and sample-and-hold amplifiers (SHAs).
Describe the ...
