Hi, I have a little job, that I need to make. I have looked for ways to solve it, at maybe Arduino is a solution for my issue. Please let me know, as i have never played with this before - only some pic16f, that i programmed in assembler.
The project is as follows: I get a 10 bit parallel gray-code from an encoder (24 V signals). This i have to read out - my idea was to read it out on a 16x2 lcd display, as i already have this laying around. Initially, i guess, that i have to convert the graycode to a 10bit binary, and then again convert this into a 4 digit decimal or even a 4 digit 7-seg, if I should choose to use 7-segments instead.
Since the pic16f series only have a 8bit databus, I think, that it would be easier to either choose a pic24f (16bit) or maybe try out an Arduino for the first time.
What do you think - maybe you even have some code made, that I can have a look at for doing the job?
