Reading ADC via HAL with Potentiometer and Displaying GUI on Serial Studio

Lab Objective:

In this lab, participants will utilize the Infineon PSoC 6 microcontroller to interface with a potentiometer via the Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL). The analog values from the potentiometer will be acquired using the ADC (Analog to Digital Converter) module. Subsequently, the acquired data will be visualized on Serial Studio through a graphical user interface (GUI), enabling real-time monitoring and analysis of the potentiometer's position and corresponding voltage values.

🚩 Let start

Create Application


  • Config code for Serial Studio

    • Open main.c

    • Add the below code into for(;;) loop function

// For Serial Studio
 printf("/*%d,%d*/\r\n", counter++, (int) ((adc_out*24)/3304866))
  • Save the file

  • Build and Launch the Application

Set up Serial studio for the board:

  • Open Serial Studio.

  • Navigate to the "Setup" section.

  • Locate the JSON file within your project's workspace and select it.

  • Select the appropriate port from the available options.

  • Click on "Connect" to establish a connection and start viewing the sensor data.
