Any pointers for bitbang ASK demodulation ?
Hey guys, I'm starting to work on bitbang ask demodulation and receiving. The signal is rather low amplitude so I'm forced to use the internal comparator. I've decided to use 4KHz...

Why use an external pull up on reset pin ?
Hey everyone, According to the datasheet it seems like the reset pin is internally pulled up. If so, why use an external pull up ? Why not leave it floating ?

How to generate a 38KHz 10% or 25% d.c with minimum cpu load
Hey everyone, I would like to generate a 38KHz (low duty cycle 25% or 10% or so) on an atmega8a with minimum cpu usage. The avr runs on an 8MHz internal oscillator. The highest "...

Which checksumming method should I use ?
Hello everyone, I have a simplex data line from the pc to an Atmega8a (8 MHz internal RC). The data is coded in Manchester code at about 4kbps. I would like to add the ability to...
