I'm using a 555 timer to read an atari paddle.
I get a vary radical exponential reading. Like 12:0 to 9:00 is a difference of 300us, 9:00 to 6 is 100us, and 6:00 to 3 is 50us. I'm guessing some math could correct this but was wondering if anyone knew why its so outrageously off like that. Using an atari paddles is not something new, but I dont see much on the matter. in regards to this.
BTW: the atari is not a true pot, its used as a variable resistor. Only two leads or connected by design.
