Topic: Threshold Voltage for Digital Pins (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic


Hello all,

I had a concern about the threshold voltage on the digital pins located on an Arduino Mega, 5V operating system.  As what voltage does the processor consider the input to be a "High" position, as well as the voltage for a "Low" position.  Also, is there a dead space located between the two thresholds where the pin would essentially be indeterminate? 

Thank you for your time. 


0 up to 0.2 x Vcc = low. (0.5V with 5V VCC)
Vcc down to 0.7 x Vcc = high (3.5V and above for 5V VCC)

See section 29 of the data sheet, electrical characteristics.  I don't have it handy, these might be a touch off.

Have a look on the datasheet of the ATMEGA2560
