Discuss the characteristics of ADC in detail

analog to digital conversion

ADC stands for analog to digital converter. It is a widely used electrical component. It converts an analog signal into its digital representation. The main component of any digital circuit that needs to process an analog signal is an ADC. The devices which use an ADC to convert analog signals into digital numbers are known as ADC devices. A microcontroller can understand and process only digital numbers. It cannot process analog signals.
