EE Bookshelf: Signal Acquisition & Filtering on Simple Embedded Systems
I came across this post thanks to a post on my personal website (microbuilder.eu), and thought it was worth sharing this excellent introduction to basic signal conditioning and DSP filtering on simple embedded systems. Holly does a great job of introducing some of the issues involved in getting analog signals into the ADC on your MCU, and deciding what to handle on the analog side and what’s better off being implemented with digital filters, comparing IIR and FIR filters, etc.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
