im new to arduino but im already used to programming in C++ and Visual Basic.
Im working with a X-Ray PIN diode detector in a synchrotron radiation laboratory.
The device im using is http://www.xenocs.com/files/Product_Data_sheet_LD/ACC-05_X-ray_Pindiode_detector_system-02-LD.pdf
I can read the X-Ray intensity thru the Fout
plug, which is a TTL signal with frequency that ranges from 0-500kHz (That is proportional to the photon flux on the diode). I have a arduino UNO R3 board.
I want the arduino board to make an average of the TTL frequency over 1/10 second and write the information on the serial.
I have read here that the maximum sampling rate of arduino UNO is about 125kHz, which is way below the 500kHz cap frequency of the detector.
anyone know if this is true? can i read the 500kHz signal with arduino uno?
sorry for bad english hehe =] thank you for your attention.
