Yeah I meant like personal computers. Not mainframes. I was also not taking RAM into account, Arduinos don't have to run operating systems after all.

Hey guys,

This is a question for the older guys out there. If you were to compare the processing power of the ATmega32U4 to that of personal computers how far back in time would you have to go to go for it to match the best computers on the market?

I'm only early twenties so the slowest computers I've worked with were like 700MHz processors.

I just resorted to buying a Leonardo. Has 2 16bit timers.

Yeah, It's wired fine, If I change the code to use the regular servo library it works. However I can't use the regular servo library because it uses the 16bit timer1, which I need for reading time critical ultrasound sensors.

95 is the neutral point yes, With just a servo it works correctly.

I believe it's the same thing, I must have misread somewhere.

Hi guys,

I'm using an Arduino Uni and an ETC to drive servo motors on an RC car, this worked fine using the servo library, however I needed to use timer1 for a 100ms interrupt and so resorted to using SoftwareServo to drive my servos. My steering servo works just fine, (it doesn't connect to the ETC) however the ETC I'm using to drive the rear wheels is just beeping, indicating it's not receiving any useful signal. I've checked all the wiring multiple times, the ETC is powered by a separate 7.4V LiPo, I've tried the ETC with the radio receiver and it is working fine. The code I'm currently testing is as follows:
Code:
#include <SoftwareServo.h>

SoftwareServo myservo;

int val;

void setup()
{
  myservo.attach(10); 
}

void loop()
{
  val = 95;
  myservo.write(val);               
  delay(15);

  SoftwareServo::refresh();
}
 

Can anybody help me please?
