Do you want to be able to measure analog voltages with more resolution than your current Arduino UNO or other microcontroller? Then you need a device such as the ADS1115.

The ADS1115 is a 16-bit precision analog-to-digital converter capable of 860 samples/second over I2C. It has four input channels, which can be used as four single-ended, or two differential channels. See "Single-Ended Vs. Differential Analog Inputs" below for more information.

The module can be powered with supply voltages between 2V to 5.5V, which makes them compatible with all common 3.3V and 5V microcontrollers and processors, such as Arduino and Raspberry Pi.

The module's I2C address can be configured for one of four available addresses making it possible to connect up to four of these modules to the same I2C bus. So, you can effectively add up to 16 additional analog inputs to your Arduino or other microcontroller. See the "I2C Address Selection" section below for details on configuring this address.

It includes a programmable gain amplifier (PGA), which can be configured for gains up to x16, to amplify small analog signals to the full available range.

If you want to measure voltages much higher than the max analog input (AIN) then you can use a couple of resistors to make a voltage divider that will give you a voltage within the range of this module and then use this module to precisely measue that voltage.

Single-Ended Vs. Differential Analog Inputs
  • Single-Ended analog inputs measure the voltage between the analog input pin (A0-A3) and ground (GND).
      With the ADS1115, measuring voltage in a single-ended configuration will effectively only provide a 15 bit value, since the 16th bit is a sign bit (the device uses signed integer values).
  • Differential analog inputs measure the voltage between two analog input pins, such as A0 & A1 or A2 & A3.
      When measuring voltage in a differential configuration you will get the full 16 bits of resolution since you can now measure negative values. Also, differential measurements are more immune to signal noise.

5 of 5 2 of ADS1115 boards just received, not tested... January 28, 2018
By: SDY in Marpole from Vancouver, BC Canada  
... and my 1383 character long review having been judged (by a machine...) too long, I'll be optimistic and give full rating..

5 of 5 ADC works great. October 14, 2016
By: ovide mercure from boca raton, FL United States  
There is a lot of Python code for this ADC, as well as, Arduino support.  However, if you are like me,  a novice and program in C, you will find several vague references to unfinished libraries all over the Internet.  Luckily I am working with the Raspberry Pi/linux and the i2c-dev library is available and easy to use to communicate with the device.  I was able to get both modes, single shot and continuous conversion, working and the ADC performed wonderful for my needs.
