This is an instructable for beginners to teach you how to use an analog to digital converter
This will let you measure a ratio between a higher reference voltage and an input voltage. You need to calculate the actual voltage yourself because the basic stamp cannot calculate numbers below 1 (such as a percent)
Both the binary data and the decimal value will be displayed in the basic stamp debug window
This is done on a basic stamp 2 because it is the only microcontroller I have right now.
(I’ll be making a programmer and cool toys for the PIC16F877A and PIC16F628A very soon.)
You will also need a 5v voltage regulator and a 3v voltage regulator (it’s not really needed)
5v for the higher reference voltage, and the 3v for …
