'[EE]: Rotary Encoder'
2001\01\04@085420 by Simon-Thijs=20de=20Feber?=

Hello All,

i'd like to connect a rotary encoder to a 16F84.
I know i can use the RB4-7 inputs (interrupt on
change), but my bournce rotary encoder has different
behaviour than expected.

Between 2 dents (clicks) it goes through the following
bit pattern :

Output A 0 1 1 0 0
Output B 0 0 1 1 0

where in the A= 0 and B= 0 are the in rest positions.

Is my pic at 10MHZ hast enough to capture this
pattern, count and put some I2C on other pins ???

How do i capture the pattern anyway (without
disturbance/bounce and etc) ????

best regards,

This is know as a quadrature decoder.  There have been hundreds if not
thousands of posts on this topic on the piclist, so a search of the archives
would be good idea.  Then get yourself to

There are several ways you can decode this type of controller, either
through polling or via external interupts.  A 10MHz PIC will easily be able
to poll a quadrature decoder with plenty of time left over if this decoder
is being turned by hand.  If this is on the output of e.g. a motor (unlikely
if it has dentents) you obviously need to poll the switch more quickly in
order to avoid lost states.
