Richard Wall: chipKIT Pro and Delays

Last week, we learned about the methods of reading from and writing to the input and output (I/O) pins of the PIC32 microcontroller. This week, we move on toward delays!

This project in particular investigates methods of creating software time delays to pace processor operations. The timing methods that control when a process is to be executed can be implemented by using polling techniques that sample a free running clock or by executing code that requires a fixed amount of time. This project also demonstrates the use of time delays for signal conditioning.
