I have just recently started reading up on microcontrollers to implement this project we have. When I asked about this in a different forum, somebody mentioned arduino, and it’s only been a few hours since I’ve been reading up on it, so I was hoping to receive some input from you guys.
First, the project:
Touchscreen LCD that receives data via wifi from specified website upon logging in. It displays that data and transmits data back to the website. It’s fairly simple, but we just have to build this so that it could receive and deliver messages very fast over wireless internet. We’d like for it to be as close as possible to the rate at which one would receive the message through a browser in a PC if someone else posted a message on their account.
Any suggestions on which arduino would best fit this project? Also, is it possible for arduino to perform this task at such a rate I mentioned above? Thanks everyone. I’m thinking that I might end up using Arduino instead of PIC depending on what you guys have to say about it.
