This application report provides guidelines that take you through everything from configuring the ADC and related registers correctly, responding to interrupts, and board design recommendations; this may be particularly useful for first-time users of the TMS320C2000 digital signal processor (DSP) platform devices and for firmware engineers with less exposure to the analog world. Various system consideration issues are discussed, such as setting sampling rate, proper sequencing of input channels for efficient transfer of digital counts to the system’s data memory, inputting the driver/filter circuit, and power supply and calibration.
