i'm trying to drive a CMOS counter (40110B) from Belas digital outs, but i want it to run as fast as possible sometimes. or well, just insanely fast will do
the counters datasheet specifies a 110ns pulsewidth minimum, and a max clock speed of 1Mhz (recommended operation for 5v.)
if i understand the [delay] help file correctly, the shortest time i seem to be able to generate within Pd is a single sample at 44100hz, assuming that is the rate Bela is running at?
that would amount to 0.000023 seconds, aka 23 microseconds, aka 23000ns. that's about 200x the minimum pulsewidth, 20x slower than max clock speed, and therefore hopefully firmly within the safe zone.
that would be more than fast enough for my uses, but i just wanted to check if there's any mistakes in my thought process here.. any corrections?
