Accelerating Arduino Math

Arduino

Performing division operations on a microcontroller (or any processor) is an intensive and cycle-eating process that can drastically slow down your application. Unfortunately, it’s a critical component of dealing with real-world information, such as using a moving average¬†to smooth noisy sensor data.

Alan Burlison’s blog post¬†guides us through some of the pitfalls of the division operation, and several clever methods for drastically improving performance while still being able to use the operation.
