Abstract

When a modem is installed by a customer to interface a Central Exchange, for example, a Computer Processing Unit (CPU), the emission level of the modem is adjusted in the Central Exchange with an appropriate resistor (Rx). It is often desired that the CPU sense the value of this resistor, and convert its analog value into a binary word, e.g., a 4-bit word.
