    Hello,

    Does anyone know how to convert an ADC code to a voltage using MAX1229 DAQ?

    Thanks

    If you want to convert the output of an ADC to a voltage, why not just use the input instead?

    Have you read the datasheet of the MAX1229? The MAX1229 is an ADC. It converts input voltage to a binary code word. It cannot convert a code to a voltage. You'll need a DAC for that.

    Or what are we missing?

    Multiply the generated code by the reference voltage.

    Hello,

    Thanks I see that now. These datasheets are too complicated.

    Maybe if you tell us what you are trying to achieve we may be able to suggest a solution?
    Your original question was very general.
