Handy Link: AVR Timer Calculator

{lang: 'en-GB'}

Ok, here’s another little gem I came across on the web that I think you’ll find useful: A web-based Timer calculator, courtesy of Frank at

Just put in your clock frequency and the time (in seconds) you need to count to and let the calculator do the rest.

8 bit and 16 bit timer resolution values are catered for and he even includes a prescaler function so you can experiement with different prescaler values.

Note, You’ll need to make sure that you have Javascript enabled in your browser to use it.
