ADS1256 and Arduino DUE

I am trying to use an ADS1256 connected to an Arduino DUE to read singel ended and differential data.

I am new with SPI interface and are wondering if anyone knows how to create an sketch without use of an library.

Can anyone help me with this?

Current code:

u'll find another post for ads.. seach!

Gething close to get it working.

Here is my current code, but the readings shows 1.16 voltage when nothing is connected. What is wrong?

WebPage Link: Arduino Code

The other problem is that the readings does not show minus and pluss voltage, only voltage.

7FFFFFh plus maks HEX data = +5V
800000h minus maks HEX data = -5V

  if(adc_val > 0x7fffff){ //if MSB == 1
    adc_val = (16777215ul - adc_val) + 1; //do 2's complement
  Serial.print("DIFF0_1: "); Serial.print(adc_val*0.0000005960464,5); Serial.println(" Volt");

ADS1256 REF: Datasheet, Page 23.

Floating inputs may give random readings.
Reading with both pos. and neg. is connected to a common point..?

Also check your reference voltages.

AINCOM is connected to AGND

I put the ADS1256 to DIFF mode, reading Pin 0 and 1.
The ref. voltage is stable 2.500vdc.

When 2.5v ref is connected to Pin A0 and AGND is connected to Pin A1
I get output of 2.49996vdc and HEX code is 3FFFC0

When 2.5v ref is connected to Pin A! and AGND is connected to Pin A0
I get output of 2.49996vdc and HEX code is C0003E

Pluss voltage output is from 000001h to 7FFFFFh
Minus voltage output is from FFFFFFh to 800000h

Thos values are almost perfect 1/2 way to +/-5V

Yes, but how to I make the system write + or - sign before voltage readings?

Also I am going to use an Fluke 744 Processor Calibrator to confirm readings tomorrow.

hi Kimlorentz
Do you have succes with your ADS1256?

If moste significant bit is set if means number is negativ (on 2's compl form)

A signed long will fixthe sign problem ?

The code works, but I dont know how the hex to desimal works, I only copyed that part.
Here is my code.

Link to code: ADS1256

Hoe does this part of the code work, and how can I make it show me the + and - sign.

  if(adc_val > 0x7fffff){ //if MSB == 1
    adc_val = (16777215ul - adc_val) + 1; //do 2's complement

After greeting
I want to work ads1256 with arduino due
Can you send me the program at this address
