i'm trying to make an Attiny85 talk with an Arduino Yùn using IR and SoftwareSerial library. I've just solved the problem on the Yùn side, now it's time for the little tiny85. I have already done this using a Yùn and an Arduino Uno, and it works. I'm having some problems with the tiny85 because of (in my opinion) timers. I've never used them!
I burned the bootloader @ 8 MHz (internal).
First of all i followed this guide to check the SoftwareSerial: it works!
Then i followed this link to generate the 38 kHz carrier, and i realized that the SoftwareSerial doesn't work anymore. I also tried to make an LED blink, but the delay() function doesn't work after the carrier generation.
I'd like to know if the Attiny can use different timers to handle the 38 kHz carrier and the delay/SoftwareSerial part... If i must tell the truth i don't know if this is the right question. This is the first time i meet timers, even if i have been using Arduino for years :confused:
Any suggestion would be appreciated!
