Re: Crystals, oscillators and resonators

I see that some MSP430 have a cpu speed of 25Mhz. Would that impose a limit on the frequency I could potentially measure. Would I be able to count transitions at a greater rate than the clock speed ?

Crystals, oscillators and resonators

I got myself a Launchpad kit and am tinkering with it and learning a little. I'd like to build a frequency counter and I think I can use an MSP430 type to count ticks between rising edges on the signal to be measured. If I wanted to measure a frequency of say 10 Mhz what sort of MSP430 should I use ...
