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.
