Hi David Tosenovjan, Marketa Venclikova, Milan Brejl 


Together with Luca Barbiero For motor control purposes, we need to acquires 4 analog inputs at high frequency (40 to 60kHz). This analog inputs should ideally be triggered at exactly the same time

For such use case,NXP Application Note (AN 3206) isproposing to use eQADC to acquire the motor currents and then eDMA to transmit the values to eTPU function ASAC.


However, it seems the SDADC peripheral could be able to accomplish the same task... Is there any particular reason why eQADC is preferred in this case?


Is there any hints how to chose between one or the other? Do you know, In this case which one would give the better resolution for this use case? 


Many thanks,
