I have been toying with the idea of making a simple Logic Analyzer and have just recently gotten serious about doing it.
I need more memory than a ATMega328p provides so came up with the solution outlined in the image attached and have a few questions:
1) Am I wasting my time? (I'm poor and can't afford a store bought model that's why I'm doing this with parts I have on hand, minus the memory chip.)
2) Will this work? (Basically I'm just dumping data as it is acquired and dumping it sequentially to memory)
3) Do I need a latch between the uController and the memory?
4) Am I crazy for even doing this? :) Rhetorical question
The memory chip is CY7C199CN-15PXC 32KX8 and the counter is 74HC4040.
As always thank y'all for your wisdom.
