Inside this application note we can get info regarding adc, sensor, interfacing, implementation, and hardware architecture. Lots of discussion such as the hyperterminal application, pressure sensor interface, interface, the pressure sensor, and sensor interface are presented inside the application note.
This application note presents info like silicon pressure sensor, hyperterminal application, microcontroller development kit, pressure sensors, and pressure sensor. Below are some excerpt from the application note:
The voltage output from the sensor is converted into a digital format using the Direct Memory Access (DMA)/Analog-to-Digital Convertor (ADC) peripheral of the Z8 Encore! XP MCU. The output from the sensor is obtained at pre-set time intervals and up on conversion to the digital format, the data is stored. The data is displayed in a HyperTerminal application at regular time intervals via the UART port of the MCU. Pressure is defined as the force exerted per unit area and is expressed in several different units.
Even more, the application note presents more about application, pressure, software implementation, and microcontroller.
