controlling a hi-tec HS-311 servomotor

Started by stho November 18, 2005
hello!
i have been trying to control a servomotor with a MSP430F149 
microcontroller, but it seems it wouldn't work. i think the generated PWM

outputs(i've worked with the timer interrupts) are not so good, however, i

couldn't fix the error. can anyone help me with some piece of advice, 
please? 10x!

(1 Specify what you are trying to do. (2)Learn how to implement that on the 149. (3) If it doesn't work after (1) and (2) ask us any specific questions you may have.

You're probably correct.

Sure: Produce a good PWM signal. Did you seriously expect to get any useful advice when you provided ZERO data upon which to base that advice? The servo requires a 5V power supply and a PWM signal. One of the two isn't correct. How the hell would we know what's wrong? -- Grant Edwards grante Yow! If our behavior is at strict, we do not need fun! visi.com
