Maximum Frequency an ESP8266 can yield

By ctherouxNo Comments

An ESP8266 running NodeMCU can yield maximum frequency of 1.44 kHz with a duty cycle of 61%.  The wave form is given below.  The code used to perform this test is:

pin = 8
gpio.mode(pin, gpio.OUTPUT);
while true do
 tmr.wdclr()
 gpio.write(pin, gpio.LOW)
 gpio.write(pin, gpio.HIGH)
end

Without clearing the watch dog (tmr.wdclr), the device can yield a frequency of 1.84 kHz.  Without clearing the watch dog, the device reboots after a few seconds.
