Reading high speed or high count encoders with a Micro
« on: May 15, 2011, 04:04:12 AM »
because my current project needs to operates outdoors in the rain, snow and summer heat, I'm
always looking for ways to replace PC(current main controller) functions with a submersible Mirco.

The micro I plan to use can keep track of low count encoders(100cpr) on its own, but can't keep
up with the high count encoders(10000cpr) I'm using(missing counts). Then I tried the LS7166
http://usdigital.com/assets/general/LS7166.pdf
and it worked sweet, plus the A/B/Z from the encoder connect right to the LS7166 so part count
is kept low(a good thing when dealing with mother nature).

If you need high count encoders connected to a Micro check out the LS7166.

PS:I don't work for these guys, It's just information worth sharing.
