hello everyone, i'm new to electronic development and I have done quite a bit of research and don't know what or where to look next. I'm currently developing a custom board for a robot

and I would like to integrate a few components however I don't know how to go about doing it. so I would like to integrate the ads1015 to convert analog to digital for a camera. also a microphone and speaker any help with this would be great.

Hi Maddyd,

Thanks for reaching out.

That's a nice project, if you want to use an ADC I recommend you to check the http://http//www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/boards-and-kits/000005829.html Schematics for the Intel® Edison Board for Arduino, to see how the ADC is connected to the Edison using the SPI interface.

Commonly for the microphones, it is recommended to use a signal conditioning circuit and I think there are too many configurations for it, but you can check these links for general circuits:

About the speaker, I think you should use the PWM outputs for it, there is a lot of information about it too that you can search, like this link: https://developer.mbed.org/users/4180_1/notebook/using-a-speaker-for-audio-output/ https://developer.mbed.org/users/4180_1/notebook/using-a-speaker-for-audio-output/

I hope you find this information helpful.
