  • hmm, there must be something different in our testing.
    To compare Original Espruino Board with ESP32 I wrote some Q&U functions (quick and ugly)
    As a first result I couldn't find any way to come down to 20ms, as you mentioned.
    Strange results, in my eyes, are:

    • setting a pin is 3 times slower on ESP32
    • to figure out how much time goes to ESP-IDF, a simple test function is added to Source, which calls jshPinSetValue with true and with false. This takes a few ms only.
    • array copy from a big array already takes much more than 20 ms
    • LedShiftout which is similiar to the command in your module takes even more time
    • if setting a pin only takes some microsecs, why does setting with pin.set() take close to a millisec

    var pin;
    switch(process.env.BOARD){
      case "ESPRUINOBOARD": pin = B5; break;
      case "ESP32": pin = D5; break;
    }
    function test(fnc){
      var t = new Date();
      eval(fnc);
      console.log(fnc.substr(3), ":" ,parseInt(new Date() -t));
    }
    function tstLoop(cnt){
      for(var i = 0; i < cnt; i++){}
    }
    function tstArr(cnt){
      var o;for(var i = 0; i < cnt; i++){o = new Uint8Array(1024);}
    }
    function tstPin(cnt){
      for(var i = 0; i < cnt; i++){pin.set();}
    }
    function tstArrCopy(cnt){
      var c,o = new Uint8Array(1024);
      for(var i = 0; i < cnt; i += 4){
        c = new Uint8Array(o,i,64);
      }
    }
    function tstDigitalWrite(cnt){
      var dfnc = digitalWrite.bind(null,[pin,pin,pin,pin,­pin,pin,pin]);
      for(i = 0; i < cnt; i++){
        dfnc(33);
      }
    }
    function tstShiftOut(cnt){
      var arr = new Uint8Array(64);
      var sfnc = shiftOut.bind(null,[pin,pin,pin,pin,pin,­pin],{clk:pin});
      for(var i = 0; i < cnt; i++){
        sfnc(arr);
      }
    }
    function tstLedShiftOut(cnt){
      var arr = new Uint8Array(1024);
      var sfnc = shiftOut.bind(null,[pin,pin,pin,pin,pin,­pin],{clk:pin});
      for(var i = 0; i < cnt; i++){
        sfnc(new Uint8Array(arr,i*64,64));
      }
    }
    function tstjshPinSetValue(cnt){
      ESP32.test(pin,cnt);
    }
    test("tstLoop(1000)");
    test("tstArr(100)");
    test("tstPin(1000)");
    test("tstArrCopy(16)");
    test("tstShiftOut(16)");
    test("tstLedShiftOut(16)");
    test("tstDigitalWrite(16)");
    switch(process.env.BOARD){
      case "ESP32": test("tstjshPinSetValue(6144)"); break;
    }
