ADC Reference Options
How to I select the Reference for my ADC in PSoC Designer?
You have the choice of selecting a reference from the following options:
- VCC / 2 +/- BandGap
- VCC / 2 +/- VCC / 2
- BandGap +/- BandGap
- 1.6 * BandGap +/- 1.6 * BandGap
- 2 * BandGap +/- BandGap
- 2 * BandGap +/- P2
- P2 +/- BandGap
- P2 +/- P2
You can select these in Global Resources section in PSoC Designer and the options vary from device to device. The range of the ADCINC is set at ±VRef. For fixed scale, VRef is set to VBandgap, or 1.6 VBandgap. For adjustable scale, VRef is set to Port 2. For supply ratio metric scale, VRef is set to VDD/2.
