    I have to use an external 10 bit A/D on my project because the internal one is not fast enough. I was going to have the A/D stuff data into a FIFO memory but I am finding that these chips are difficult to work with and...

    @defragster Yes I learned all those older languages too. No semicolons required. So I did use that little trick about matching the start and ending brackets and all 3 showed up but I did not realize, but should...

    "C" will always suck. @defragster -- I removed loop to see what would happen and it gives a long hash of words ending in "undefined reference to loop" even though the word loop does not appear in my code. So I put...

    @KurtE OK, glad to know that the box does not mean something is wrong. Thank you everyone for helping me figure this out. It is so frustrating learning C. It is such a clumsy old language. I suppose Arduino used it...

    I also noticed that the "void loop()" is not even used in the example. Does that mean I can just eliminate it from the code or is it always required even if not used? Also, in the example code there is no ending...

    I know the Teensy is not the problem, it is the software. If X is an integer constant does that mean I cannot assign a new value to it? I have already tried removing x from the CONST assignment and putting it under...

    I hate C. It gives me nothing but problems. Where is a nice straightforward command such as FOR X= 1 to 3 (BASIC). I have tried many variations of this program and nothing works PLUS the error description means...

    @MarkT : Are you suggesting to integrate the analog output of the APD and sample it at a slower rate, like maybe once every 200 ns (5 MHz rate)? I suppose that could work but the internal A/D has a 1 MHz sample rate...

    PaulS, no that wouldn't work as I need to know the amount of signal coming back. That is essential and important data. It would not be either on or off. I have a 20 Mega samples per second A/D Maxim 1425 but there are...

    I was thinking the A/D could do it because the processor is 600 MHz and as of last January no one seemed to know the speed of the A/D. Maybe more info has come out since then. The manual for the ARM chip is over 1000...

    Thanks for informing me about the tricks in getting max speed from the Teensy 4. I would be happy to explain the goals. I am trying to build a specialized LIDAR system with a range up to 1km. So the timing would look...

    What is the purpose of the line? for (;;) Wouldn't the loop run forever without this for statement because it is already inside the "loop()" command? Also, I have a question about a command I have never seen a...

    @Frank B Thank you for the updated code. It works. However the code I was using was an offical PRJC demo program so I don't know why the disable Interupts command was in there to start with. I have a lot to work...

    After giving up on the Teensy 4 for lack of fast AD conversions last January I dragged it out and started playing with it as my lidar timing generator. My notes say I had it creating 100 ns. pulses but when I run the...
