The conversion of a simple sensor is typically just that, simple. The problem is with more complex sensors, particularly sensor that require stimulus. This usually means a software based approach to the conversion that drives up MIPs and complexity. Fortunately, Core Independent Peripherals (CIPs) provide an effective alternative. CIPs allow the creation of dedicated conversion engines that operate without code overhead.

This presentation will demonstrate several autonomous sensing solutions. These examples include position sensing, ultrasonic ranging and proximity, capacitive sensing and synchronized data acquisition. Each system will be described in detail with implementation and code overhead highlighted.
