ADC - Sample anlog values of multiple channels time triggered

The used microcontroller on the radio module Preon32 provides a several ADCs (analog-to-digital converters) instances which can be used to sample analog values to digital ones.

This example uses one of the available ADC instances. Each ADC instance has multiple channels. Each channel is internally connected to a GPIO pin. 6 of the channels are used to sample values. All used channels are sampled each 50 milliseconds. The values are stored to a value buffer. The value buffer is filled continuously. Events are generated if the buffer is half full or full.
