The converter-computer linkup The object of an ADC is to provide the computer with digital data at its input/output ports. Such conversion may, however, be quite a slow process, certainly when 41 Computer interfacing Muliplexer Digital Outputs (Multiplexed) counter Figure 3 . 6 Multiplexing four analogue inputs is economical in terms of the hardware requirements compared with the rate at which the computer can handle data. This makes it necessary to synchronise the two rates in some way. This may be done by linking the ADC to two available input/output lines of the computer, these two lines having control functions known as start convert and status.

They all have one thing in common; 29 Computer interfacing they all take natural quantities as their input and produce an analogue output. However, there is one type of transducer that is capable of producing a digital output directly — the digital shaft encoder. The digital shaft encoder This is the only true transducer capable of giving a parallel digital output. It comprises a circular disc on which a series of radial patterns of light and dark areas, each representing a binary number, is applied, to be read by a number of sensing heads.

The binary pattern used on disc encoders does not follow a pure binary sequence, as if it did large angular errors would occur whenever the sensors stopped on the junction of two segments. This is because the sense heads always tend to read the total number of logical 1 bits and form the output from this. Thus, a sense head on the junction of 0111 (7) and 1000 (8) would actually read 1111 (15), giving a substantial error. However, if a code is used in which successive binary numbers differ by only a single bit, the error is very small.
