Most of us know the importance of ADC and the fact that simpler it is to use the ADC in any device, the more easier it is to make any project. But we will start from basics and take one step at a time.
We are going to cover all of them, starting with the simplest, PollForConversion method. I am not going to go in depth of how this sensor works. You can consider it as a potentiometer or a variable resistor to test ADC. I am not using any LCD here so in order to see the value change, we have to either use debugger or Stm studio. I will show the results in both of them. Compile the code and load it to the board.
Now, switch to debugging mode. Add variable value to watch list. It is recommended to create this variable as global. Run debugger, also just have a look at watch list. I have changed display from hexadecimal to decimal. NOTE:- As the pollforconversion function is in the while loop, this procedure will continue forever and microcontroller can not perform any other function.
To avoid this, we will use interrupt in the upcoming tutorial. Also I will use the STM-studio to watch runtime variables. Description Most of us know the importance of ADC and the fact that simpler it is to use the ADC in any device, the more easier it is to make any project.
If enabled, ADC will Continuously sample and convert. Scan Conversion mode. Configures the sequencer of groups. If it is disabled, conversion is performed in a single conversion mode the one defined in rank 1. If enabled, conversions are performed in sequence mode up the rank.
Discontinuous Conversion mode. If sequencer is disabled, this parameter is discarded. ADC needs the trigger in order to start conversion. Trigger signal are of two types:- Software Trigger. Hardware Trigger. Leave the clock untouched and go to the configure tab and select ADC.
Now make sure your configuration is as in the picture below. Scan conversion mode is disabled because only one channel is selected and sequence is not needed at this time.
Electrical Engineering Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for electronics and electrical engineering professionals, students, and enthusiasts. It only takes a minute to sign up. I need to calculate the exact sampling time or sampling rate for my setup on a STM32F I have the ADC setup as follow:. Each channel can be sampled with a different sampling time.
That depends on the source of the measured signal. The longer the sampling time, the slower the ADC sample rate will be.
On some STM micros you can use built-in opamps as the input buffers. You can also have the external ones to make readings quicker and more precise. I'll let you work out the details for your particular case, but I'd like to add some more clarity. First off, I've opened up an errata report on RM the reference manual for my chip here.
This isn't for your chip. You'll need to find the one for your chip.

RM p Here's some sampling time options for me. I've highlighted them below:. You'll notice that PCLK2 divided by 2 is greyed out for me, meaning it is an invalid value for my configuration, probably because that would result in an ADC clock that is too fast. Conversion time is based on the bit-resolution you've set for your ADC. Options are 12 bits, 10 bits, 8 bits, or 6 bits. The RM is a bit misleading hence my errata report above but here's what RM shows on p Take a look at my notes for clarity and corrections:.
The fastest user-selectable sampling time possible is 3 cycles, and bit resolution adds 10 more cycles, for a. If your analog line has an extremely small current source capability think: the analog source "recharging" the capacitance of the analog line can only produce a tiny tiny current to recharge that analog linethen it cannot handle a high sample rate sampling on it.
This is, again, because the sampling process itself will draw current, making the analog signal sag distorting it from its true valueand introducing noise to the analog signal. In such cases you are wise to choose a slow sample rate by setting your sample time to a very long value, such as ADC clock cycles, for example, which is the longest you can choose.
In short, just choose the longest sampling time you can, to be safe, that will meet your sample rate requirements.
If you must sample as fast as possible, do so, increasing sample time and therefore decreasing sample rateas required, until your analog signal remains stable and stops fluctuating due to noise you are adding to the analog line as a result of your sampling.
Make sense? Go slow unless you need to go fast. If you need to go fast, ensure you're not going too fast. If you're going too fast, slow down until you're no longer going too fast.
Quick and dirty way to verify the sampling time; pull a MCU GPIO high right before a sequence of samples start and pull it low right after blocking for conversion to finish. Check the GPIO pin pulse time with oscilloscope and divide by the number of samples taken. This is limited to manually triggered conversions, of course.

As I see references are not designed to handle high currents. It's usually enough to get good results as long as your VDD is reasonably stable. The following users thanked this post: VanitarNordic.
That is the big pain of those parts with less than pins. Except the LC filtering a good pcb layout is important.
People indicate a 4 layers pcb works best. Still, nobody replied that using two external resistors can affect the quality of the TL voltage reference, in face of temperature variance, or not. The ADC in stm32F is 12bit. Quote from: VanitarNordic on October 20,am. Quote from: STM32Fx8. Quote from: imo on October 20,pm. I like the very good MAX Hard to beat at this price point. See section 5. Unfortunately, I cannot find a calibration register for the internal reference anywhere in the STM32FC8 documentation.
I have used other STM32 chips that store the ADC counts recorded from the internal reference when the chip is supplied with 3. Using this value, a measurement of the Vrefint channel, and some math, one can convert other channels from ADC counts to millivolts. See also section Quote from: slugrustle on October 21,pm.
If you have a spare input channel then use that to read an external reference voltage and adjust the other channels values in software. Totoxa Contributor Posts: 9 Country:.

STM32F0 ADC - Tutorial 6
Most of the sensors use ADC for data transmission to the microcontroller and that's why ADC plays an important role in any embedded system design. Earlier microcontrollers, such asdidn't had ADC built in to the microcontroller and so there were external ADC connectors, making design more complex.
But we will start from basics and take one step at a time. DMA request generation during regular channel conversion. If enabled, ADC will Continuously sample and convert. Scan Conversion mode. Configures the sequencer of groups. If it is disabled, conversion is performed in a single conversion mode the one defined in rank 1. If enabled, conversions are performed in sequence mode up the rank.
Discontinuous Conversion mode. Discontinuous mode is used only if sequencer is enabled parameter 'ScanConvMode'. If sequencer is disabled, this parameter is discarded. HOW TO:. Leave the clock untouched and go to the configure tab and select ADC. Now make sure your configuration is as in the picture below. Scan conversion mode is disabled because only one channel is selected and sequence is not needed at this time. Continuous conversion mode is enabled as we want adc to work continuously.
As mentioned above, we will take one step at a time, starting with the most basic one. Also I will be using HAL libraries to write the code. So let's start with PollForConversion method. This will Poll the ADC and wait for the conversion to end.
We can specify timeout in case of errors. Timeout is the timeout in case of errors. With something in front of it, the second LED glows and the value in the debugger decreases. To avoid this, we will use interrupt in the upcoming tutorial. To Download full code, visit. No comments:. Subscribe to: Post Comments Atom. Search This Blog. Follow by Email. Report Abuse.
