|The Theme You Picked: Data Conversion|
|Project14 | Data Conversion: From ADCs to DACs, Explore A-D or D-A Techniques!|
The January theme is Data Conversion and it was inspired by a suggestion from neuromodulator. Your projects can explore either A-D or D-A techniques, or improve them in terms of increasing speed, resolution, linearity, reduction of noise or filtering of the analog signal. Analog electronics and precision measurement are important for ADC and DACs. element14 Essentials: Analog Electronics 1 gives a good primer on this topic and it covers key parameters, characteristics, and applications of precision measurement analog ICs, including ADCs, DACs, voltage references, op-amps, audio amplifiers, and current sense amplifiers. .
Some examples of projects shabaz came up with include data acquisition and charting (Brewing beer with Raspberry Pi) ; seismology (TI LDC1000 Evaluation Module ) ; ; detecting sounds (Vibration Sensor and Exercising - Calculating FFT on Nucleo Board - Blog #3 ); signal generation (Building A Direct Digital Synthesis Dual-Channel Signal Generator ); medical sensing (MagicHat - 6 - Heart beat detection ); power monitoring (Turn your Avnet Azure Sphere Starter Kit into a Power Meter / Data Logger ), software defined radio (Software Defined Radio (SDR) - My First Design ), and distance learning (Virtual Eye System -- Post#4 -- Programming the Pi to get the distance ). Projects can involve ADCs or DACs, or analog data could be sampled or filtered or converted to a different domain, signals could be extracted or synthesized, speech processing, instrumentation, SDR and so on.

Step 2: Post in the comments section below to begin a discussion on your idea. Videos, pictures and text are all welcomed forms of submission.
Step 3: Submit a blog post of your progress on your project by the end of the month. You are free to submit as many blog entries as you like until the beginning of the next theme.
Be sure to include video proof of your project!
Visit: Data Conversion or tag your project blog DataConverCH
You have until March 16th End of Day to submit your completed project!
A jury consisting of your peers will judge project submissions!
