@DrFPGA: Short of resources? You? Say it ain't so...

It's true ... it's true ... sometimes I don't know whether to take a 3-hour lunch or spend the afternoon at the executive spa-&-bar. There's only so much of me to go around you know LOL

@DrFPGA: These short videos are perfect introductions. Hope you can post more like them in future news items.

I agree -- a picture says 1,000 words, and a video says 1,000,000+ -- the trick is to persuade folks to make them ... I always ask, but oftentimes they are short of resources (like the rest of us LOL)

Don't you mean inputs?

In the paragraph:

In the case of ports configured as analog outputs, any adjacent pair of ports can be used to form a differential ADC. Furthermore, any port of such a differential ADC can be internally biased to form a pseudo-differential ADC. (Multiple ADCs can share a common bias point.)

don't you mean ports configured as analog inputs, not outputs?



(Kind of hard to make an ADC with an analog output.)

Re: Anti-aliasing filter?

Simple RC anti-aliasing on the ADC channels may be all that is needed in many cases.  It's true if the system is reconfigurd 'on-the-fly' then the user would eed to know where the ADC input channels are if they are deploying anti aliasing filters.  You could get creative with the internal switch to enable 'R-C' filtering on an as needed basis...ut this may not be the best use of Pixi pins.  product details and datasheet can be found here....http://www.maximintegrated.com/en/products/analog/data-converters/analog-to-digital-converters/MAX11300.html

@Dave1010101: ...its adoption in the market will depend on price which I haven't seen yet.

My bad -- they did tell me -- and I forgot -- that's another question I will ask them to respond to here in the comments (watch this space)
