I am an engineering student(mechatronics, 3rd sem) and i am just looking for a solution to count pulses at a "high" frequency. 250-500 Hz actually. It is not very "high frequent" but the hardware (some selfmade controlling unit) we got in the company i am actually working for, is not able to count that fast.
would one of the arduino boards be able to do this? I wasn't able to gather informations about this specific question (but if people measure their rpm of the engine...) i am just asking to be sure about this.
The pulse will be counted by a simple "if -> oh, well then x+1 -> treshhold reached -> x=0" routine or sth like this.
Could you suggest a specific one? I need to count 16 to 32 input ports (so i guess i need a board, delivered with 16 to 32 digital input ports)
