Abstract

This application describes the conversion of two analog sensor signals into one pulse width modulat- ed signal. The application describes generating and processing the pulse width modulated signal using a microcontroller's input capture and output compare timer channels. This design contains the following components: a pressure sensor, a temperature sen- sor, a saw tooth wave generator, two comparators, an exclusive OR function, and a microcontroller with input capture and output compare timer chan- nels.
