Maybe, maybe not. 14-instructions is limited, but there are tricks! For

example, you don't have to compute every thing in the 14 cycles. It's

possible to distribute processing across many 14-cycle slots. I assume

that a minimum 16-bit arithmetic will be required. 6-cycles will be

required for the phase accumulator and addition 2 (or three) for examining

roll overs. 2 more cycles are required for looping. This leaves only

3-cycles! However, if you unroll the loop then the 2-cycle loop overhead

can occur once for every, say, 32 accumulation intervals. This give

roughly 5-cycles per accumulation interval for doing other stuff.

Here's an extreme example of only 1-cycle available per iteration:

(it's pulse width measurement and not a pulse generator, but the same

conceptual programming approach is applicable.)
