Where are you seeing specs on the integrated encoder?
Full disclosure: I was involved in developing the Dynamo, many years ago. The Greendrive doc is here: (see p. 43)

The Dynamo version that will be available for FRC teams might not include the Pin 4,5 encoder; in that case, the Pin 1 tacho signal (15 PPR) will be available.

I believe in intuition and inspiration. Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution. It is, strictly speaking, a real factor in scientific research.
