Satnogs DC Motor and Encoder Questions

#1

Hello,

Is it possible to use the commercial encoder instead of the satnogs encoder that is advertised alongside the recommended DC motor ? https://www.pololu.com/product/2824

Thanks,

Sam

Hey!
Yes, you can use the dev-pins, A2, A3, as digital input from the one
encoder and PB5, PB4 from the second one. Also from the dev-pins
connector you can also get the +5V and GND for each optical encoder.
I am not sure how the ATMega328p can handle (maybe polling all the
pins) 4 pulses and measure the position. We are waiting for your contribution,
here is the firmware, that you can extended to support these optical encoders.
