Some questions related timers :
1. What is the MAIN difference between the Asynchronous (2) and Synchronous(0,1,3) timers ?
2. Which one should I need to prefer and why ? My CPU has a crystal of 8Mhz.
3. How can a timer can be Asynchronous ? Mustn't it be attached to some clock ?
Acctually it's a general question and not related specifically to AT90can128 cpu although an example on this CPU would be great!
This is from its datasheet :
