Getting Started with AVR® Microcontrollers

 Introduction and Key Training Application

In this series, we will be introducing a number of AVR® MCU peripherals, including GPIO, timer/counter, Universal Synchronous/Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter (USART) and Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC). In the process, we will work towards building an example application which samples an analog light sensor; then proportional to this ADC sensor reading, updates a Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) duty cycle. An averaged sensor value is then sent over the USART to a PC terminal.
