Hi all, I am contemplating a project where I would want to have three independent timer interrupts running simultaneously and want to understand how the Arduino platform uses the timers on the Mega (ATMega 2560-based boards). As I understand, the ATMega 2560 has four 16-bit timers available and two 8-bit ones. Ideally I would like to hijack three of the 16-bit timers.
My question is, I know that usually one timer channel needs to be left alone for the rest of the Arduino framework to work properly. I do not care about losing use of the Arduino library PWM functions. Can anyone tell me which Arduino pins/functions map to which timers on the AVR?
Thanks in advance!
