  • it works fine with the raspberry pi

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    it works as described. I used it for my raspberry pi, here are the instructions: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v4_fu904QqM

    It can read 4 different analog signals, this is good.

    Cons:

    8 is not much, so you can't seriously use for values you need with some precision.

    reference voltage can be only between ~1.6 V and 5 V, so not possible to measure in mV range.

    OtherThoughts:

    I didn't use it as Digital to Analogue, but it is also possible.

    Bottomline:

    fine for learning, usefull circuit, not only the chip, this is fine.
