Frequency and duty cycle counter
Written by Michael J. Lord Electronic Design Service 2010-06-01650-219-6467 firstname.lastname@example.org me a note if you find this program usefull.
I wrote this for a client. It runs well on the demo board using the tv display
This program measures frequency and duty cycle of a square wave that is input into CountPin The practical range for the unit is 0 to 100 khz. At 1mhz the accuracy is not so good. This works well for any pulse width modulation decoding that is needed. It measures one cycle and reports the results back in the next cycle. In this way it reads every other cycle
This is usefull when needing to decode the meaning such as position of a pwm signal such as that sent to a servo.
