Intro To Digital Timers:

An Overview Of The Personal Radar System
           Digital timers have come a long ways since their beginnings as simple counters. They are found standard in almost every microcontroller and offer to us the power to keep precise timing for any application. The PIC has several different timers all which are easily accessed using the C18 library.

What To Do Now
           With basic knowledge of how to setup & run timers you are now armed with knowledge beyond just using simple delays for creating signals like PWM. Really, timers can be useful for any application and it is the advanced features like timer interrupts that begin to come in handy.

           This tutorial, while rather short is meant only as a brief introduction into the timers that the PIC offers and how to access them using the C18 library function calls. There is alot more to the timers that hopefully will be explored in future tutorials but for now, the basics have been covered.
           If you have any further questions, I implore you...don't be shy, take a look at the forums or ask a question there. I check them out regularly and love getting comments & questions.
