Are there? Do you have any part numbers?

Mainly to learn from it and to expand the features in the future would be
easier in SW. O.K. I admit.. sounded like a good idea to try a multitude of
elements of PIC design out on.

Yes I've used the 12C508, the 16F84 and now starting to use the 16F873
I used the sampling method of data capture, you're suggesting having a known
capture period and counting the number of pulses during that period?

It's at home so I'll bring it in tomorrow. Thanks.

To have a fixed MAP in EEROM or RAM and use this to scale the input.

Range would be max 4:1 to 1:4, so it can increase or decrease.



ps. Hi Scott, hope you are well. Still at Plantronics I see. You must be a
manager by now ;-)
