Is there any way to get an accurate time on the Basic Stamp? Following the tutorials in “What’s a Microcontroller” I understand the concept of using a For...Next loop to approximate time, but that requires that you know how long the instructions inside the loop take to execute. I’m interested in some kind of timer that will set a Pin to HIGH on a defined interval. I could then construct my programs inside a Do Loop that would monitor the Pin. I saw that Parallax offers a timer chip, but wondering of there is any ‘native’ on-board functionality that will do this.
Thanks in advance for your input,
