Arduino extra analog input with CD4051B - 8 port analog multiplexer
I had to use more than 8 analog inputs to a project, and desided to play around with analog multiplexers
Otherwise i had to use an expensive Arduino, with more analog inputs.
But if you just whant a digital I/O the you can choose mcp23017 or shift registers.
Recommended standard reusable hardware
Use donate button if you like my guides, or if you want a new guide ( See missing work ).
Here my test setup, with 8 to 1 analog input (using 1 analog input and 3 Digital outputs)
You can exted this guide in varius ways, i include some samples at the bottom.
Here is my sample code. I shift the bits on the multiplexer and read the value, with no delay. I get the right values, if you put in a small delay (2 ms) before reading - it may be bether.
Arduino sample code
I use putty as console debugging putty or Direct download my server (v0.62)
I discovered that i runs more stable than the build in version
Here a example to get 32 analog input using only 4 analog inputs and 3 digital outputs
If you scale it up using all 8 analog input on this board you get 64 analog input still using only 3 outputs.
But you can get more analog inputs - You chose the number !!!
Here a example to get 64 analog input using only 1 analog inputs and 6 digital outputs
If you scale it up using all 8 analog input on this board you get 512 analog input still using only 6 outputs.
If you whant to save digital output, you can make it with shift registers. And only use 3 digital outputs.
