PASM waitpeq not working as expected

The code gates one pin of 500Hz oscillation with another pin (high/low).

The SPIN code works with `waitpeq(|<TRIG1, |<TRIG1, 0)`.

However the PASM code doesn't. T_PIN stays high, even though R_PIN changes.

Comment out `waitpeq R_PIN, R_PIN` makes T_PIN toggles at 500Hz.

  _xinfreq = 5_000_000                                  ' 5 MHz crystal (5 MHz x 16 = 80 MHz).

  • You need to put this:
            mov time, cnt
            add time, delay_t        
    

    after the or outa,T_Pin.

    Your Spin loop is toggling pin 22 at 500 Hz, but your PASM code is toggling pin 21muich faster: 80MHz / 2000 = 40KHz

    The CNT increment in the Spin loop is 2 * 80MHz/1000 == 160K, but the CNT increment in PASM is only 2 * 1000 = 2K,
    Change delay_t to long 80000.

    Thanks Phil. I fell into the WAITCNT trap. You saved me there.
