Speed of boards ?

how many cycles per second can the board run at ?

is it faster than 1 mhz ?

thanks in advance

Read the specifications of the Arduino you use. Most Arduino run at 16MHz and the 3.3V Arduino and elder models at 8MHz. Due to the RISC-design of the processor, most instructions will only take 1 or 2 clock cycles. Now the more interesting question is, why do think it matters for your problem?

is it faster than 1 mhz ?

At least 8 billion times faster :wink:

Tsk, tsk, tsk, AWOL, haven't you been taught in school not to compare apples to oranges and not to mix units? The processors use the Hz as unit, whereas it's open what kind of unit a z is, the h can only be the hour.

Ah, but sadly, the hour is not an SI unit.

No, but it's a common unit outside the SI with the universally accepted symbol h documented even by the NIST. Hectoseconds (hs) and Kiloseconds (ks) and aren't really common, people prefer minutes and hours.

I really don't think any institution that promotes gills, furlongs and bushels (though it does have scruples) should be held up as any kind of good example. :smiley:

It seems they moved away from furlongs, fortnights and sillyputties and approach civilisation by using more common measures. On the other hand, SI units are officially adopted in all countries of this world, except for Burma, Liberia and the USA.
