Hi I need to read some form of proximity sensor and found one at ebay but it has an Whopping 320KHz TTL npn puls as output. Is it possible to read that high frequency with Arduino?
is it one puls or a continuous stream? A link to a datasheet would be nice A link to the ebay site would too be helpfull
First word that came up in my mind was "interrupt"
This is the facts taken from Ebay. They didnt have any datasheet. Interupt can read signals like this I know but my question was if the Arduino can read so fast pulses as 320KHz or is it that the sensor can read as fast as 320KHz pulses before read error?
