Hi,

I have to compare a Digital output from an ADC with a Digital constant in a Digital comparator. How can i transfer my Digital output from ADC to a Digital comparator?

AndreaLB,

One possibility is to use a custom ADC_SAR modified with digital bus output. Attached below is a project showing this approach. 

Attached are project file and ADC_SAR_ex library. Please find library installation instructions below.

A different aproach will be using a DAC and an analog comperator. Will use few resources and does not require interrupts etc. Have a look at the example provided.

Happy coding,

Bob

Thanks for the answer.

In this case, can i directly take my voltage from the pin and compare it with my max voltage, without using an ADC and a DAC?

When your max voltage is an analog input you can compare it to the voltage using the analog comparator. Take care of oscillations at the compare-point.
