Help needed - ESP32S3 analogRead execution time πŸ™‹

Hey guys,
Unfortunately, I don’t own one of the esp32s3 boards I was wondering if some of you guys could help me testing :smiley:

I would like to know what is the elapsed time of analogRead on that board.
So if someone could let me know what would be the output of this code that would be very very helpful.

void setup() {
  Serial.begin(115200);
}

int t = 0;
unsigned int timestamp = micros();

int tmp_read;
void loop() {

  tmp_read = analogRead(A0); // read analog input from any analog pin - feel free to change it 

  if(t++> 10000){ // 10k analog reads
     t = 0;
     Serial.println(micros() - timestamp);
     timestamp = micros();
  }
}

Thanks a lot!

I hope this is what you expected.

Module is Esp32-S3-Wroom-1U

Yep that’s it, thanks!

Unfortunately, it’s very long. Arround 60us for one analogRead. It is the same for ESP32 based boards.
With the custom driver in our library we are reading analog output with latency of around 10us, which is still very long, but manageable.

Since this driver is not working with ESP-S3, we will not be able to support the low side current sensing with the ESP32-S3 for now.

I’ll update the dev branch so that the ESP32 compile does not break any more. Once when it’s done I’ll post in the followup of this thread. :smiley:

For interest sake I repeated this test with an ESP32-S3-Wroom-1 and got similar results

I am busy trawling through looking for a way to get the analogue working on the S3
