Pacer clock saves subroutine calls

Posted on Feb 19, 2013

This Design Idea outlines an easy-to-implement time-delay routine that requires no subroutine calls and thus avoids possible stack-overflow problems (Listing 1). This method also saves RAM space by requiring in most cases only two variables: the PACER_CLOCK as a free-running counter and another variable introduced at a particular instance (for example, TIME_VAR).
