TTL Sensor read by 2 Photons simultaneously


I have an application where a fast TTL serial sensor is needed to be read simultaneously by 2 Photons.

I realize that I can have the first Photon broadcast the serial output to the second Photon but this will introduce some lag.

Is there a way to “split” the signal so I can connect the TX and RX from the sensor to both Photons?

Thanks in advance.

Hi @Jimmie

If you tell us more about your fast TTL serial sensor (like point us to a data sheet) we can help more.

In general if the sensor is output only, then you can drive two inputs on the two Photons from one sensor output.

If instead the sensor requires feedback or management to work correctly, then it will be more difficult.
