ADC-24 power measurement

Postby raimo » Mon Sep 08, 2014 10:43 am

Hello,

I'm measuring 6 power rails on a development board. I have set up 6 differential channels and now I would like to get the absolute value for a couple of those as well. Is it possible to use the same channel in both modes at the same time? It would be enough to read the single channel value just before or just after the differential reading. Voltage range is sufficient, but would have to be a different value for the single and differential readings.

Hi Raimo,

Unfortunately, it is not possible to configure a channel to be both single-ended and differential.

However, you could configure another channel for a single-ended measurement and connect it to the circuit. Note that this will have an impact on the time before the other channels are read again.

Hope this helps.

I was afraid of that since I could not find this in the documentation. I can use the connection board to do this so I don't have to solder more wires to the testing board.
Thanks, anyway.
