    Hi All,
    I need to connect six Tekscan A401 force sensors to a multiplexer and then transmit the o/p of these sensors via RS 485 to be given to a MC9S08DZ60 microcontroller.
    Don't know how to do it. Can anyone help me?

    Show us how you will connect one sensor via RS-485 and maybe we can show you how to do the rest.

    Not good enough. Show us a schematic with ONE sensor and how it is going to transmit the data to your destination.

    the MC9S08DZ60 happens to have a boatload of ADC onboard. What to do, what to do.

    I am not a PIC fan. I have used Atmel tiny and mega series extensively. The Freescale MC9S08 is also one of my favorites, but best of all I liked the MC68HC11.

    Where is a PIC mentioned?

    What I meant to say in too many words was that the MC9S08 is a great family of MCUs.

    Well, I suppose there's no accounting for taste of the finer microcontrollers in life. ;)
