need some help for servo control
« on: June 22, 2009, 07:18:28 AM »
Hi.

I am trying to control a servo using ATMEGA168. I have set the timer1 in pwm mode and set the frequency to 50hz and trying to vary the duty cycle from 0 to 2ms. The servo is a 180deg rotation type.

The servo dosent rotate completely.. Can some one pls help.

thanks

When you say it doesn't rotate "completely" do you mean 180 deg. or 360 deg?

it dosent rotate complete 180 deg.

I went through servo control tutorial in the tutorial section. As per that my understanding is that if i vary the duty cycle from 0ms  2ms.. we can control its complete rotation. I tried to do the same in my code where in i update OCRA1 value from 0ms  to 2 ms.
