I would like to be able to set a pin high for a certain amount of time and then set it low at the end of the specified time.
I am using an ATmega128 chip and I would like to be able to obtain this pulsing of the bit without doing inline assembly code. I didn’t see a specific timer function in the RTOS and my only thought as far as being able to do some timing with the RTOS was to set the bit and then delay the task that turned the bit off for a certain amount of ticks. This would provide some measure of timing, but not the most accurate, and it does not seem the best way. If anybody has any suggestions, please let me know.
