I've a question about using Atmega8a for fast mode PWM using TCNT1 (16 bit) and hope to answer me with my thanks in advance
I want to set Fast PWM to use TCNT1, OCR1A to hold the comparing value of the counter and use OC1A as an output, I know how to setup the configuration that i want ,
TCCR1A |= (1 <<WGM11 | 1 <<WGM10 ); // Set PWM type (Fast PWM) e TCCR1B |= (1 <<WGM13 | 1 << WGM12)
but my confusion is
if i used OCR1A to store the comparing value, where can i store the TOP value (period time),which register i can use for storing ?
if i want to make OC1B as output, where can i store the TOP value ?
if i want to use both OC1A and OC1B at the same time, which registers used to store the comparing values (dutty cycle), and which one is used for storing the top values (period)
is it possible to use a TOP value more than 1024 since TCNT1 is 16 bit ?
