Interfacing ADC0808 with Serial port (RS232) using interrupt clock from 8051 microcontroller (AT89C51)
In many applications data collected from multiple sensors is transmitted to PC for display or further analysis. The conversion of data from analog to digital form is done using an ADC. The digital data from the ADC is transferred to the computer using serial port. This circuit demonstrates the principle and operation of interfacing an ADC0808 with serial port of PC using the microcontroller AT89C51. The circuit is divided into three parts: ADC, controller and serial port. This circuit can be used as an intermediate circuit in many applications.
ADC0808 which is an 8-bit resolution ADC has eight input channels i.e., it can take a maximum of eight analog inputs. The circuit uses the first analog input pin to take the analog input signals from the preset.
The MAX232 IC is used to convert the TTL/CMOS logic levels to RS232 logic levels during serial communication of microcontrollers with PC. The controller operates at TTL logic level (0-5V) whereas the serial communication in PC works...
ADC0808 is an 8 bit analog to digital converter with eight input analog channels, i.e., it can take eight different analog inputs. The input which is to be converted to digital form can be selected by using three address lines. The voltage reference can be set using the Vref+ and Vr...
