Following the instructions in the manual I wrote some BASIC functions to setup and calibrate the board and to perform measurements. All this works very well, but I am not into "high speed" data acquisition (maybe a battery capacity tester program would be my next goal).
I will try and see how fast I can go with the pace timer and pure BASIC.
As far as I understood there is even a way to call assembly byte sequences directly from BASIC without the need to go through Pascal/Assembly/CSUB. But I am still learning.
