'[EE] clean A/D'
I would like to get the really clean A/D conversion, so would it be
recommended that I use shielded wire, like audio cable to hook up the
variable resistors/passive sensors to the ADC, or is noise not generally a
factor? And to be clear, the shield connects to VSS, right?

Proper shielding & grounding are really needed, but if even
this doesn't help, I'd suggest we should transmit digital, not
As example, voltage to frequency converter could be used
close by sensor. Pulses should be counted by PIC's counter.
Counter values should be stored as a stream in RAM.
Then, to calculate input voltage you should find a difference
between last stored value and the value stored at of one or
few steps ago.
The approach is extremely noise-immune due to its integrating
