PIC Timer 1 calculator

With the PIC Timer 1 calculator you can see the resulting frequencies and periods when you change three pieces of information. :

  • Frequency (the default is 4MHz).
  • The Prescaler ratio.
  • Timer 1 offset (or value) (using 2 sliders or the spinbox).

Three sliders let you change the values by dragging a control up and down on the screen and the resulting changes are immediately shown in this page.   The first is for the prescaler and the other two are the high and low byte for the timer value. You can also set the timer value by typing into the spinbox - top left (or use the up/down arrows to change the value in the spinbox).
