I think Poul-Henning is refering to his AducLoran receiver, which
used a 1Msps ADC [1]. I dont remember what he exactly does with the signal,
but IIRC he uses a 40MHz uC which leaves him with 40 Cycles per sample,
which is quite a lot if you only do just some math calculation to detect
the start of a second...

And unlike with the FPGA, it does not take more time to process 8bit
or 24 bit samples as the uC works with 32bit numbers anyways.

The trouble with you, Shev, is you don't say anything until you've saved
up a whole truckload of damned heavy brick arguments and then you dump
them all out and never look at the bleeding body mangled beneath the heap
