'[OT] Logging systems'
|I would be thankful if any engineer on the list could give me a
basic background theory on how to implement logging of reasonably
fast events using an mcu.(Or at least a reference on the web)
My problem is that the information I wish to log is received so fast
that mcu ram and eeprom is overflowed. On the other hand if I use an
external eeprom as backup I miss information while storing on it.
What's the usual mechanism applied to this kind of devices?
(Adding an external RAM mybe?)
Thank you very much.

How fast are the events you are trying to log? How do you know when the
event will occur/has occured to know to log it? How many do you need to log
(how big does your buffer need to be?)
In my design for a PIC-based DSO that I have been doing on and off for a
while now, I interfaced a PIC to a fast SRAM. In fact, the writes to the
SRAM were going on faster than the PIC could handle. The address was being
given by a fast synchronous counter IC and the PIC merely started/stopped
acquisition and read out the SRAM contents to a PC over a parallel port.
I think something like this would handle almost any high speed source of data.
