Abstract

This paper describes a multi-position switch using electronic circuits to convert the analog voltages from a potentiometer to a binary output. The advantages of this structure are: small size, low cost, a minimum number of interconnects, no switch bounce circuitry, expandability and an output that is readi- ly available in a binary format.
