adc sample rate

Question asked by George Kruger on Apr 3, 2015

I want to prototype a simple data acquisition system.  The initial requirements are fairly minimal.  I need 16-bit 1Msps ADC and a 12bit DAC.  The K70 Tower System or the Freedom K64 Development Platform both look like good starting points for this.


My questions are these - Will either of these boards meet the required 1Msps in a real world application, is the CPU involved in the sampling process or is it autonomous,  and what would the sample buffer size be? (I need to real a continuous 10000 samples, and then save to sd card) 


Sorry,  I have no background in micro-controllers so my language is nontechnical. 

thanks for your help.
