  2. Using a PN-junction diode for temperature measurement usually depends on its 2 mV/K temperature coefficient. Conventionally, you must amplify and digitize this voltage with an ADC before you can use the value in a microcontroller. Less well-known ...

  1. Vardan Antonyan EDN Few microcontrollers include a DAC. Although you can easily find an inexpensive DAC to control from your microcontroller, you can use unused peripherals instead of adding parts. Fortunately, you can convert a ...

  3. Aubrey Kagan Embedded After my previous review of more traditional ways of reducing the I/O lines needed to drive LEDs/displays and keyboards/switches, here I'm looking at the nominally new method of Charlieplexing. Back in about 1982, I was ...
