Timers

In this code I am using an Attiny 84 to produce different frequencies for a piezo buzzer (PB2). The Attiny ADC works a little differently than the Atmega.

Essentially, you provide a value for the OCR0A and it will count up to that value and send a high to PB2 when it does. Then it will get back to counting again. By setting the prescale first and then changing the OCR0A you can produce different frequencies.

Elliot Williams' Make: AVR Programming was helpful for this code!

#include <avr/io.h>
#include <util/delay.h>

int main(void)
{

    TCCR0A	|= (1<<COM0A0);  // toggle pin on match
	TCCR0A	|= (1<<WGM01);  // CTC mode (once hits OCRA)
	TCCR0B	|= (1<<CS00) | (1<<CS01); // Prescale: CPU clock div. by 64
	DDRB = 0b00000100; // PB2 is OC0A (HOOK UP BUZZER HERE)

    while (1)
    {
		OCR0A = 0b00111111;
		_delay_ms(1000);
		OCR0A = 0b11111111;
		_delay_ms(1000);		
		OCR0A = 0b00000111;
		_delay_ms(1000);
		OCR0A = 0b00000011;
		_delay_ms(1000);
    }
}

The problem I had with this project was reading the high and low bytes of the ADC.
