Is there any built in way to read/calculate Vcc on the StellarPad?

Recommended Posts

Greetings,

 

     If I remember correctly the MSP430G2553 allows you to read ADC channel 11 to get the value for VCC.  I use code on my arduino boards, as well as the ATTiny chips to read the battery voltage so that I can monitor it.  Anybody have any idea of the same sort of thing is possible on the StellarPad?

 

Thank you!

I'm not sure if you can do that. The only internal parameter you could sample via the ADC is the internal temp. You could add a voltage divider and connect it to an ADC.

 

The Stellaris® ADC module features 12-bit conversion resolution and supports 16 input channels,
plus an internal temperature sensor.
