## Re: [Sdcc-user] [OT] - ADC Ideas

 Re: [Sdcc-user] [OT] - ADC Ideas From: Jean-Paul - 2007-03-09 07:14:13 ```Hi, It looks like you don't think that the end-of-charge voltage is above the=20 nominal voltage. On the schematics given in the link hereafter, it would be safer to put a=20 zener diode across the lower resistor of the divider, to protect the=20 controller.
