MAY STUDENTS ADD A MODULAR ANALOG-TO-DIGITAL CONVERTOR (ADC) TO THEIRMICROCONTROLLER?
No. External signal conditioning boards are not allowed.
So even though it makes no sense to limit the use of external ADCs (they are not external signal conditioniners), I guess they are now explicitly prohibited? Does that mean that no one can use a Rasberry PI since it doesn't have an onboard ADC?
