PPM or PWM Input?

Postby AndyJ » Mon Jul 23, 2018 9:27 am

Forgive me if I've missed something, but is there currently a way to READ any type of RC signal with the Phidgets system?

Say if I wanted to wirelessly control something through Phidgets, could I read a PWM or digital PPM signal from a common RC receiver?

Short and to the point :)

What about any kind of serial signal, UART or I2C or such? I can interface an Arduino with it then.

I suppose I can always just convert them to analog values and read those.

If you really need PPM input and you are comfortable with Arduino, then that's probably the way to go. This sort of application (reading PWM, I2C, etc.) does generally require coding on a microcontroller.
