What we would do is measure an analog signal using the time-honored cap/res
delay time with a PIC. Our time was typically 10-50, where our signal was
acquired (sample-and-hold setup).
Then we would add a random number to this in the range 0-15. The random number
could come from any of a number of places; ours was the CRC of the last message
we received (we were continuously receiving messages).
These results were then continuously averaged (Avg = ((sum of samples) - Avg) +
The result was surprisingly accurate.
PS. To whomever I was going to fax yesterday, never mind. The above is what I
really wanted to show you.
