    The data sheet of the ADC804 will contain all the details about implementing the device with a computer. Although if you are actually going to use a modern pc running Windows, this may turn into a challenge. You will probably have to use the parallel port to use the ADC804.

    This is a link to a section of the AAC Ebook that speaks about A to D converters - Reading this material may help you understand more about the process.

    After you have looked the material over, come back with more specific questions.
