We already know that analog-to-digital (ADCs) converters are the most widely used devices for information securing to translate the analog signals to digital numbers so microcontroller can read them easily. There are many ADC converters like ADC0801, ADC0802, ADC0803, ADC0804 and ADC080. In this article we are going to discuss about the ADC0804 converter.
ADC0804 is a very commonly used 8-bit analog to digital converter. It works with 0V to 5V analog input voltage. It has single analog input and 8-digital outputs. Conversion time is another major factor in judging an ADC, in ADC0804 conversion time varies depending on the clocking signals applied to CLK R and CLK IN pins, but it cannot be faster than 110 μs.
