    I have a hobby project I am about to start and need some general guidance since this my first attempt in embedded systems.

    I am planning on having an array of 80 sensors that will be outputting signals in the 0-15 millivolt range.

    I want to use these sensors to determine the location of an event. When this event happens there will be a very brief voltage spike on a few of the sensors. I need my system to determine which of the signals has the highest amplitude and to output a digital identifier of that sensor. I will then record this information (which sensor was closest to the event). I do not need to record any information about the signals themselves, I only need to know which sensor output the strongest signal.

    Since I am such a beginner I was hoping someone could simply point me in the right direction of the general architecture of this system so I can know what I need to start reading about. Right now I am a little lost since I don't know how to go about accomplishing this and there is an abundance of information to read through. Any guidance, no matter how general, is much appreciated.
