Generate single rectangle pulse signal?

Postby aerodynic » Fri Dec 23, 2011 7:15 am

Hello guys,

is there any way to generate a simple pulse signal with Phidgets?
It's not a PWM for servos, just a single pulse for a speedometer input.

Technical details:
Pulse ratio: 30-70% ... 70-30%
Operating voltage: 6-16V
signal: <1,9V 1mA
Frequency max: > 1kHz
Signal form: rectangle

Thanks and happy holidays.

If you just need pulses but aren't too worried about uniformity, you should be able to just pulse a digital output. It depends on how quickly you need to pulse it. You can get at least 1kHz from an 8/8/8 digital output.
