RC Receiver PWM input "without using pulse in"
Has anyone written a RC Receiver "pwm input" program in BlocklyProp yet? I'm sure a person could use the pulse in command but I haven't tried it yet. I was hoping to come up with something to read 6 or 8 channels with a single core. A long time ago I wrote one in spin and it was too slow, I attempted to write one in PASM and then adopted Jason Dorie's. I am not sure if C is fast enough to read the channels with good resolution. I have put the blocks together in BlocklyProp but have not had time to test it.
On the BlocklyProp Demo site there is a user defined code block which I have used to perform floating point math in C, the block works pretty slick. I'm wondering if a person could use this block to insert PASM code to read the 6 or 8 channels.
Some might ask why not just use spin, well........ BlocklyProp is so easy to use and it is helping me to learn C. Also I am working on the activity bot with my son, its actually his bot, but I think I play with it more than he does. LOL
I am just brainstorming here with my time too tinker limited.
After I have time to test what I have written I will share it on the BlocklyProp site.
I think a block to read pwm signals from a RC Receiver would be a good addition.
