    Re: Keeping Track Of High Clickcount Encoders

    In case anybody stumbles along this thread and wonders how many clicks per second the arduino can handle accurately I ran some test and its 128 clicks per millisecond. This was done using an arduino generating "clicks" aka high/low pulses into both hardware interrupt ports. If my math is right "unlikely " that is around 768,000 clicks per second.

    I think I will need board to take care of counting my encoders because the program is interrupted so much that I can't send valid pulses to my motor controller.

    Thanks for the link I'll look into those boards.

    Do you know anywhere where I could get a sample wiring diagram for those boards? I assume you have to do more than just connect the i2c line, power, and your encoders?
