Published by Wild Vision
Issue 2.0 May 1989

The following pages describe the Wild Vision ADC-1208 analogue to digital converter card for the Acorn Archimedes computer. Sections describing both hardware and software are included, as well as fitting instructions and a description of how to get started. Appendices include sections on calibration procedures, error numbers, and use with high level languages. A demonstration disc is supplied and contains several examples of how the card can be used in applications. Full instructions for using the demonstration software are supplied in text files on the disc. This manual is also included as a text file on the disc. The manual should be carefully read before using the ADC-1208, as although the card is extremely easy to use, the number of possible methods of using the card is large. So that the user can make logical decisions on the choice of parameters and specific commands a decision flowchart is provided. To use this facility a general knowledge of the ADC-1208 is required.
