Hi,

is there a way in TinyCLR to read a PWM input like eg. in Arduino?
I have seen there is a PMW-Out, but what to do if you have to read PWM?

Counting pulses or checking with of pulses? What exactly are you trying to do?

Anybody else read this in bender's voice Sad

There is not PWM in. There is only the pulse counter, or if you're adventurous you can modify the TinyCLR with a method to do just that. Or you can smooth the PWM signal with resistor and capacitor then read the analogue value with one of the analogue inputs.

Sorry for the late reply, had to wait out the newbee antispam period Smiley

I want to read the PWM Input from an RC Receiver. I intend to use it as a controller for a robot based on a Cerb40.

Greets,

@Brett and opiswahn - SignalCapture exists in TinyCLR as well, under GHIElectronics.TinyCLR.Devices.GpioChangeReader. The API is the same as NETMF for now.
