Higher precision measurement with 16-bit Analog to Digital Converters

The 16-bit ADC module integrated in MSP432 MCUs supports fast 14-bit analog-to-digital conversions at up to 1Msps. The module implements a 14-bit SAR core, sample select control, reference generator, two window comparators, differential and single-ended inputs, and direct data transfer using DMA.

When combined with DMA, the 16-bit ADC allows the samples to be converted and stored in memory without CPU intervention. The module can be configured with user software to support a variety of applications. The 16-bit ADC also has a built in temperature sensor and VCC reference.
