Multisim, Digital voltmeter, Reconstructing a digitized signal

* Activity 1: Using Multisim, construct a simple 0-5V DC digital voltmeter using the ADC (rather than the ADC0804) and the 74185 to convert the binary output into BCD, which will be displayed on two 7-segment displays. The 74185 will be used to convert a 6-bit binary number to a 2-digit BCD number. Note that the 2 least signifi

Design a Multisim circuit for a fuel-level sending unit.

The gas tank on your car has a fuel-level sending unit that works like a potentiometer. A float moves up and down while the gasoline level, changing the variable resistor setting and producing a voltage proportional to the gas level. A full tank produces 12V, and an empty tank produces 0V. Design a Multisim circuit using an LM33
