Since I didn't see any updates (yet) from the real electric pros, I decided to make one.
[ANALOG & DIGITAL]
Digital signals, electric outputs range from 0 to 1. Off or On.
Lamps will burn when digital output is 1.
Other devices will only do something when 0 changes to 1 only. This is called the RISING EDGE. 0 to 1
The 0 and 1 can be considered as 0 and 1 volt, although this not entirely correct. (later more on this)
Now with the new elements we have different kinds of Voltages.
From 0.0 volts to 0.1 volts up to 1.5 volts.
Now where can we find these different voltages, what elements are used to create them?
The elements that create these voltages are: DAC, Random-generator.
The Real-time clock can also be used.
And not entirely intended to do the task is the 4-bit counter.
The memory-bank can also be used, programmed to give voltages from 0.0 to 1.5 volts.
And the Battery of course.
Actually any element that produces numbers form 0 to 9 to F can be used for different kinds of voltages.
Number = Voltage/(Digital Value)
0 = 0,0 / (0) low
1 = 0,1 / (0) low
2 = 0,2 / (0) low
3 = 0,3 / (0) low
4 = 0,4 / (0) low
5 = 0,5 / (0) low
6 = 0,6 / (0) low
7 = 0,7 / (0) low
8 = 0,8 / (1) high
9 = 0,9 / (1) high
A (10)= 1,0 / (1) high
B (11) = 1,1 / (1) high
C (12) = 1,2 / (1) high
D (13) = 1,3 / (1) high
E (14) = 1,4 / (1) high
F (15) = 1,5 / (1) high
Like lamps burn only on 'high' voltages I noticed that this is also true for the pressure-plate and motion detector.
Seeing that their output range is only form 8 to F, the 'high' ranges, would mean that they can't work on 'low' voltages.
As a result the range of a motion detector is only 8 cubes it can measure distance.
And the lightest things on a pressure plate will weight 8, or show 8, but might be lighter. It's just it's minimum.
Compared to the digital 0 (off) and 1 (on) signal, anything below 8 is 0 (off) and 8 and above is considered 1 (on) for digital purpose.
So if the numbers are below 8 a lamp will not burn. If the numbers are 8 or higher a lamp will burn and turn off if the value changes from F to 0 or from 8 to 7
Thus some devices will only do something if the number changes from 7 to 8.
A Digital 1(on) is considered to be an Analog 1.5volt and has the value F(15) and not 1.0volt or Value A.
You'll see this if you connect a button to a number display it'll show an F when pressed.
