I really don’t understand this.
[quote]So if i set the following
OnTime: 4 millisecond
OffTime: 0 millisecond
Power: 3.3 volts
then i should be getting a steady 3.3 volts for 4 milliseconds. If i put that in an infinite loop then i should be getting a 3.3 volt steady signal. is this assumption correct?
Why don’t you set the digital IO pin to TRUE and be done with it?
Also, I don’t think you understand what you’re seeing on the end of the earlier test you were doing. You can only set a digital IO pin to low or high, which means you get 3.3v or 0v. If you switch that really fast, and vary how long on and how long off, you get the appearance of a reduced voltage. You don’t get a reduced voltage, because at any point in time it is either 3v3 or 0v, there is no 2.2v for instance. What you see if you average it out is you end up with 2.2v. A typical multimeter will only show you 2.2v, not a quickly toggling 3v3 to 0v etc.
