Hi Everyone;

I'm looking for an easy way to get an analog input converted into a digital format that can be then used in a custom software application on my PC.

The end game here is that on my boat, I need to know where the rudder is positioned. I was going to make a shaft that moves a small slide POT. I need to convert the resistance value into digital form and make it useable in a QB64 application.

I assume that there is some form of pre-built device that would be able to do this via USB similar to an electronic compass that I am using now.

Any suggestions here?
