I am designing a signal conditioning circuit which reads in data from 20 sensors and output it to the ADC of a microcontroller. My problem is I don't really understand how to connect these signals into the microcontroller due to the limited number of pins available (8 pins because the microcontroller comes with a 8 channel analog MUX).

Here is the ds18b20 datesheet

Currently, my idea is to group the sensors into 5 groups, each containing 5,4,4,4,3 sensors respectively. Then, use connect each group of sensors to one pin of the 8-channel ADC. I'm not sure if this idea is feasible nor am I aware of the hardware available to do so. Please advice!

Some basic information of the microcontroller is listed below for your reference:

Sampling frequency: 200 ksamples/s
Clock speed: 24MHz
Conversion time: 50 clock cycles

DS18B20 temp sensors aren't analog,they're digital "1-wire" sensors.
You can connect all 20 of them to one digital pin.
You may want to study the datasheet for them a bit more. smile.gif
