    Measuring voltage with Delta Sigma

    dzuy_1446756

      I have a sensor that outputs a voltage between 0 and 3V.  When I use Delta Sigma, the reading from my PSoC is compared with a volt meter.  The result is not the same as the volt meter, it may be off by 5-10 mV some times, but I just want to prove the concept, and I'm just glad that it has some reading.

         

      However, when I remove the sensor, the reading still says 200mV instead of zero.  What am I doing wrong?

         

      Here is the code snippet of the sensor reading function:

         

       

         

      void handleRead(uint8 *buf, uint8 len) {
          int16 adcResult = 0;
          int16 mVolts = 0;

         


          if(ADC_IsEndConversion(ADC_RETURN_STATUS) != 0) {
              adcResult = ADC_GetResult16();
              if (((int16)adcResult) < 0) {
                  adcResult = 0u;
              } else if (((int16)adcResult) > 16383) {
                  adcResult = 16383;
              }
              mVolts = ADC_CountsTo_mVolts(adcResult);
              printf("sensor read: %d\n", mVolts);
          }
          memcpy(buf, &mVolts, len);
      }
