Converts a single 4-bit analog signal into the 4 digital bits that the signal represents.

Description   (From Recipaedia)

Electric ADC. Converts one analog signal fed to its back to 4 digital signals output through its sides. You need to place ADC on a WireThroughBlock element to be able provide the input signal. Can be placed on any surface and rotated to desited orientation.


Requires 4 copper ingots and 3 germanium crystals to craft ADCs.

You get 4 ADC chips.

Hooking it up

You must place the ADC on a wire through block and feed the analog signal through that block. The 4 digital bits are output from the sides of the chip and are wired normally. The least significant bit is marked by 1 dot, etc.

Using it

An analog signal is often used to transmit up to 4 digital bit signals on a single wire. Use the ADC to get the original 4 digital bits back.

The ADC are commonly used in combination with a DAC, memory bank, RTC or other device that outputs an analog signal.
