[time-nuts] PIC Divider Performance (was Re: time-nuts Digest, Vol 56, Issue 71)

after the discussion of the pic pps divider's properties let me add that on


you can find a version of the pps divider that has been adopted to the Atmel
AVR Mega world. Two versions are available, one uses port A and a second
uses port D for the outputs. In contrast to the original design the 100 kHz
output has a near perfect 1:1 duty cycle. In the zips you find complete
WinAVR projects.
