    Hi,
    Which is better to use - Serial ADC or a ADC with output on 8 pins ?

    Thx in advans,

    Depends on what you are connecting the ADC to.

    Data transfer could be higher with a parallel interface, but thats not
    always true.

    good luck

    I need a single-channel only & 8-bit type. I have just now
    started to design a simple
    circuit for a very small requirement for me. So, i can jump between
    serial & parallel.
    So, I would like to know which to select - either serial ADC or
    Parallel interface .
    Kindly share your experience here.
    Why ? what is the reason behind this ?

    Yes, i understand the reason for this.
    But , Why is the parallel interface not always higher ?

    So, i can jump between serial & parallel at this time.

    Its obvious, 8bit vs 1 bit per read clock.

    The problem is getting a chip that's 8bit or 16bit parallel.

    Most ADCs being manufactured now are serial, and these serial devices
    require a high speed serial port. ( SPI mostly )

    Cost and size are the reason these serial devices are available.
    good luck
