How to interface ADC0808 using clock from 8051 microcontroller (AT89C51)
An analog-to-digital converter is a device which converts continuous signals to discrete digital numbers. Typically, an ADC is an electronic device that converts an input analog voltage (or current) to a digital number proportional to the magnitude of the voltage or current. This circuit demonstrates the interfacing of ADC0808 using 8051 microcontroller (AT89C51). The digital output is taken on a set of LEDs. This is an intermediate circuit which finds several applications. This circuit depicts a way to provide the external clock, required for ADC, from the microcontroller.
DescriptionAnalog-to-digital converters are among the most widely used devices for data acquisition. Digital computers use binary values, but in physical world everything is analog. Therefore, we need an analog-to-digital converter to translate these analog signals to digital signals.
