Using the MCU Timers

Posted on Feb 6, 2014

Although there are significant variations between different implementations of the general-purpose timer in different microcontrollers, there are many similarities in the principles of operation and the structure of the timer subsystem. The central element of the timer subsystem is a counter, TCNT (8 or 16-bits in length), which may be read or (so
