Topic: Problem with the ATTiny25 and Spence Konde core (Read 656 times) previous topic - next topic


OK, I am experiencing a problem that is, no doubt, simply do to my own ignorance.  I am pretty experienced with Arduinos but this is my first foray into ATTiny-land.  I have a sketch that runs fine on a Leonardo, but has a different output if run on the ATTiny.
Code: [Select]
int raw_adc = 128;
void setup() {
//  pinMode(3, INPUT);

void loop() {
//  raw_adc = analogRead(3);
  Serial.print(raw_adc);        //This line works on an Arduino, but on the ATTiny25 prints a bunch of 8's and spaces!
//  Serial.print("Hello World");     //this line works fine 

The purpose of the code is to read a voltage and send the value via serial port.  I have commented out the analogRead parts to troubleshoot.  When run on the Leonardo it outputs 128,128,128,128,128... as expected.  On the ATTiny I get a bunch of 8's and blanks!  It would seem that there is something different about how Serial is handled in Spence Konde's core but I just can't figure it out.

Any help is much appreciated!

Mysterious. I will investigate.

"Serial" on a tiny x5 with my core (well, actually any serial implementation for tiny x5) is a software implementation, and my cores use a special version that uses the analog comparator interrupt instead of a PCINT to improve library compatibility.

DrAzzy, sorry didn't mean to cross post.  Just wanted to see if anyone here had experienced like problems or could point out some obvious mistake on my part! :-)
