MC9S12XEP100 : ATD Resoltuion is 19.53mv with 8bit data, but LM35 has 10mv per degree celsius

Hello All,

 

I am trying to use LM35 temperature sensor on AN1 port of ATD0. But I wanted to convert the value from the ATD to the temperature value for which I can print on the LCD display. But LM35 has resolution of 10mv per degree celsius and ATD (8 bit resolution, VDD = 5v) has 19.53mv. Hence I how can I know whats the temperature in degree celsius? I dont want to use power supply of 3.3v but only 5v. I have to make the ATD resolution as well 10mv per degree celsius.

 

Looking for some inputs / suggestions

Hello Darshan,

 

If you use 10-bit resolution, as Kef suggested, this will result in a resolution of 4.88mV, or slightly less than 0.5 degree.

 

If you then wished to adjust the resolution to exactly 0.5 degree C, to simplify the calculation process, you could place a resistive voltage divider between the temperature sensor and the ATD input.  This might consist of a 820 ohm series resistor, and a 33k shunt resistor, and would provide a voltage change of 9.76mV per degree C at the ATD input.

 

Regards,

Mac

XEP100 has 1MB of flash. Conversion from ADC reading to integer degC costs well under 20 bytes of code and about 10  bus cycles...

Simple. Use 10 or 12bits ATD resolution.
