There are 10 kinds of people, those who know binary, and those who don't.

The question still remains, what are you doing with the value that requires that kind of resolution?

In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, however in practice there are many...

How about adaptivity?
- if the RPM is high there is less need to know the angle e.g. 8 pulses per rotation is ok?
- if the RPM is low the angle position becomes more important and more pulses are used.

Have not thoughed about how to build that (sort of digital gearbox I guess)

the number is used to determine the firing angle of an engines injectors

the engines that rev to 50,000 rpm use carbs so the angle is not important

i was recommended 100 pulses per rev by a guy who has been doing this stuff since the 1960's

So how did he do this back before Arduino (or micro-controllers, or even computers, for that matter)?

hmm barcodes, atms, apalo 11,  avionics

sry there was some of it at least

It's quite hard to offer sensible suggestions without having this answered

(I assume) Mechanically, it is amazing what is possible with gears - although an "adjust and recompile of a gearbox" can take many days. By adding bigger cogwheels with more teeth, change of transmissions, etc precission is incremented.
