The title says it all, looking directly at the gate of the MOSFET that OC0A(aka PD6) is connected to all I get is full on and full off using a 15mhz scope. This is an ATMega88PA at 20mhz. I first set WGM bits to mode 5 for Timer 0, set OCR0A to 100, so I should be getting less than 40% duty cycle, then to start PWM on OC0A I set the COM bits to 2(COMOA1 set to 1), then set the CS00 bit to 1 for a 1x divider, that should enable PWM shouldn't it? Or do I still need to set TCNT0? I was under the impressiont hat TCNT0 in PWM mode was set to 0xFF automatically, I didnt' see a specific mention of setting up TCNT0 in the data sheet. Thanks.

If you are in fact using mode 5 then OCR0A is TOP, and you won't get a PWM on OC0A. Set up and use OC0B, or use a different mode.

You can put lipstick on a pig, but it is still a pig.

I've never met a pig I didn't like, as long as you have some salt and pepper.

or use a different mode.

Specifically, mode 1 will use OCR0A as the duty cycle and 0xff as TOP (and still be Phase Correct).

Oh ok, I misunderstood the data sheet. Thanks.
