Thank Gadgeteer it’s Friday
As the title say’s here is a Gadgeteer module with 2x LS7366 32bit Quadrature counters on a S socket.
Running at 40mhz you can count alot with this wee beastie.
I’m sure you can come up with some creative ideas to use these - personally i’m going to use them on my balance bot…
Chuck those steppers in the bin and use one of these to create accurate servo motors for CNC and choice robots
And before @ Duke asks…yes the driver is already written
You can select 1x, 2x and 4x quadrature counting and have different counts on either channel.
Video shows a 200cpr optical encoder running in 4x mode
Usual deal - ping me an email if your interested… justin at ingenuitymicro dot com
Big thanks to @ WimC as i basically ripped his code off for the driver (with permission) http://www.tinyclr.com/codeshare/entry/256
