This may be a silly question, but not knowing the proper/exact terminology to reference, added to the overhead of the .NET Micro Framework, I figured I'd ask here and get some input -


If I had a data bus running at 1Mhz (high -> low 1 every ms), would the Netduino 3 (hell, or 2 for that matter!) be able to scan Digital inputs fast enough to not lose any state changes?


I know the chip runs at a higher speed, but wasn't sure how much of that was put towards scanning ins/outs and put towards basic running of the MF.


Cheers -

If you are using interrupts to track the changes in the data rate then I would not trust the Netduino to keep up.


The SPI bus will certainly work at higher rates but that is using the SPI protocol.

Thanks! Yeah, I can't use SPI unfortunately - looking into getting the Netduino connected up to the databus of an old 6809 processor, and it looks like I may have to do some filtering of address lines before the 'duino to filter out unwanted address calls.
