GetADC time

Started by p_dubinsky August 3, 2004
Does anyone know how long a GetADC command takes? Would it be faster
to use an off module ADC (assuming 10 bit resolution)?

Thanks,
Paul



A floating point GetADC takes 278 us, an integer GetADC takes 164 us. Chris

Thanks. I assume that the difference is the floating point conversion overhead.
