“Had to get another because I killed the one before by accidentally applying a voltage not between 0 and % volts. Be warned!
I have tried varios ways to interface in including feeding from op amps powerd at +/-12 volts supplies; however after that incident I have decided better to stick to just the 5volt supply and create a ref level at 2.5 volts and use differencial input mode. Its easire in the long run. I need the op amps as my input varies over a wide range from tens of millivolts up to 100s of milli volts.
The input variable gain differential mode on the ads1015 plus the 4 inputs enable all sorts of possibilities for this application.”
“Easy to connect to Pi and there is lots of documents and python but I have found it a striggle to find the right code for R Pi 4 Python3. Some python I downloaded first turnecd out to be incomplete and not have all the available modes, and be quite slow in comparison to the code I am using now.”
“Awesome little ADC, easy to integrate into Pi or Arduino projects (particularly handy for Pi as they lack on-board ADC), well documented and trusted device. Great service from Pimoroni, no complaints at all :)”
“Only one negative really, not overly fond of the ADDR Pin and its 3 states. Sure it means you can have 3 IВІC addresses, which is enough but not very many, I'd just much rather see solder jumpers or something similar.
This little board allows you to have more ADC Inputs, they are of higher resolution than most Arduino ones (Except Due and Zero which have the same resolution)
and is especially useful for a Raspberry Pi which has no on-board ADCs. For Arduino there is a very simple Library available at https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_ADS1X15
The Differential feature is nice as could be used as a little makeshift multimeter/oscilloscope project, allowing for an offset ground. Though for any higher voltages you would need to set up a voltage divider which would result in loss of resolution and accuracy, as the maximum voltage input on this is 5.5V.
Good little breakout made by the trustworthy legends that are Adafruit Industries”
