Go Analog With Microcontrollers

Last Updated:

Most microcontrollers are paired with discrete analog components—analog-to-digital converters (ADCs), amplifiers, filters, digital-to-analog converters (DACs), and comparators, to name a few—to achieve filtering, signal conditioning, and signal conversion in systems like those that require interfaces to analog sensors or the filtering of noisy signals. To help alleviate the complicated design challenges often associated with discrete analog component implementation, a trend has emerged among semiconductor companies to integrate more of these functions into a microcontroller or microcontroller-like device.  To read more, click the download link above or visit Electronic Design.
