Using the MAXQ3120 Microcontroller's Analog-to-Digital Converter in Polled Mode
Operating an analog-to-digital converter (ADC) in polled mode, rather than interrupt-driven mode, can be preferable in applications where priority or the inherently asynchronous nature of interrupts is a concern. This application note identifies some considerations when using the MAXQ3120 microcontroller’s 16-bit sigma-delta ADC in polled mode. Assembly language source code illustrates an implementation for this approach.
