Hey guys. i'd like to ask about my tiny  ADC problem which has bothered me about 3 days.


Problem is, Even if i don't give any signals to adc channels, there are values remained. Logically, system can't show any 


values since there are no signals. So i checked that i' m using  a reference voltage which is internally in a adc module. But 


i'm not.


Specifically i use adc like below.


 - 10 bit resolution

 -  Right justified data

 - ATD Clock at least 2M to 8M (System clock is 16M)

 - single conversion at once.


And below is my register setting  for using adc


void initialize_ADC(void)

  ATD1CTL2 = 0x40;  // ADC enable
  ATD1CTL3 = 0xA0;  // ADC conversion start
  ATD1CTL4 = 0x00;
  ATD1DIEN = (ATD1DIEN || 0xFF00);


int get_adc(int ch)
  ATD1CTL5 = 0x08+ch;            // ch means channel i use. in this case channel 8 to 15            
  while(!(ATD1STAT0 & 0x80));
  return ATD1DR0L+(ATD1DR0H<<8);         // get_adc function is getting conversed values from each channels
}                .


i really no idea of this. Plz help pity developer!
