17Intefacing ARM A/D with 5V sensors
- Mar 4, 2005Hi,
What would be the best way to interface a 5V sensor (say a Analog
Devices gyro) to the 2.5V ARM A/D? The gyro's output is already
buffered, would a simple voltage divider work to drop the output to
2.5 V? What values and resistor types would I use? Do I pick the
lowest resistor value that the sensor can drive (to minimize the
input impedance seen by the a/d), or do I need to use another opamp
with a .5 gain stage.
Also, I understand the ARM A/D spec is guarantee at full core speed,
but do you think the performance of the A/D vary with speed? I heard
some microcontrollers a/d performance has peaks and valleys as a
function of speed.
thanks for any help the ADuC is a nice chip!
