I did also some time ago measure the max measurable frequency and came to the same conclusion as Phil99: up to 1MHz. (Using the "standard" frequency measurement. I then tested the PIO-routine that Volhout posted and with his routime the PicoMite was able to measure up to 5.4MHz. https://www.thebackshed.com/forum/ViewTopic.php?FID=16&TID=15163#191650 I used 378MHz CPU-speed (and also 378MHz speed for the PIO routine). I am not sure if 5.4MHz is the highest frequency. I used the MicroMite based signal generator made by Geoff so I am not sure if the output amplitude is sufficient as a valid input at the higher frequencies. If someone has a more proven generator for higher frequencies (>5MHz), it would be nice to see if you are getting the same or better results.
