How about this : 100K from sensor to pic pin A, with cap to ground.
10K from pic pin B to pin A.
Adjust PWM ratio on pin B until pin A switches.
To cope with full range, do it from both directions - i.e. start with
cap at 5V, PWM decreasing, look for high-low transition, then start at
0V, PWM increasing, look for low-to-high transition. You are effectively finding how much PWM drive is required to push the
output past the pin threshold against the current from the sensor -
this should bear some reasonable resmblence to the sensor voltage, and
I would think would be good enough to discriminate 10 levels.
