ADC Block for Intel® Edison
Add an analogue-to-digital converter to your Intel® Edison
The SparkFun ADC Block is a development board dedicated to the Intel® Edison microcontroller, the new IT platform for creating home-automation objects and IoT projects that has recently joined the microcontroller market alongside Arduino and Raspberry Pi.
Each stackable SparkFun block is very simply connected to your Intel® Edison, and you can stack several blocks to increase your microcontroller’s capabilities or even add some new ones!
The ADC Block for Intel® Edison offers your Intel microcontroller’s I2C communication bus an ADS1015 TI analogue-to-digital converter, making it capable of interpreting the analogue output signals of the various connected devices and converting them into digital signals.
ADC Block for Intel® Edison: 4 converters, just 1 microcontroller
You can stack up to 4 ADC Blocks beneath a single Intel® Edison thanks to the jumpers integrated into each block. These jumpers allow you to choose slave I2C addresses among 4 different options.
Your analogue-to-digital converter can be configured in one of two ways:
- As a 4-channel single-ended device
- As a 2-channel input/output device
