High frequency (300 MHz) digital switching

Jump to solution

Hello people!

I am currently working on a project that requires two pins switching from HIGH to LOW at around 300 MHz, when one is HIGH the other one is LOW. I wanted to know if the edison is capable of switching at those frequencies, and if so, can I code that program using the Arduino programming language, or do I need a more specialized programming language i.e. C?

Cheers!

That is impossible with the edison without external hardware...(maybe some dirty hacking can generate those frequency for example using the SD Card interface, for high GPIO speed see http://www.i-programmer.info/programming/hardware/8770-exploring-edison-fast-memory-mapped-io.html?s... Exploring Edison - Fast Memory Mapped I/O )

if you have one signal you can use a high speed inverter to get the other one (http://www.elm-tech.com/en/products/logic-ic-hs/elm7sh04xb/elm7sh04xb.pdf http://www.elm-tech.com/en/products/logic-ic-hs/elm7sh04xb/elm7sh04xb.pdf )
