I lost count of my scopes. Now I just want mobility. I came, I saw, I bought some interesting accessories, and put names to faces: NEAF 2012, ASAE 2012, SWAP 2013, ASAE 2013.

Quote:Andrey, the Arduino implements the timer using an interrupt.I am using the built-in millis() function.I also tried to set up my own timekeeping routine by installing my own ISR. It still loses ticks.Anyway I have already ordered the PCF8583 RTC. 1/100 second resolution, through-hole DIP8 package so easy to use (unlike the Dallas DS1390 which is an SMD part).
