Attiny85 and analog input addressing

by zedin on Mon Feb 04, 2013 6:31 pm

So been trying to find an answer and even just test stuff but nothing working.

I am using the HLT core for the attiny85 and trying to read an analog signal in but am hitting a brick wall. Using the HLT cores how do you properly address the pin? I am trying to read in on the chip pin 3 (HLT pin 4). I have tried using:

but none seem to work. Does anyone have experience with these cores or shoud I use the attiny-core on google?
I am basically using two pins (0, 1 on HLT scheme) for a ping style sensor, pins 2,3 (on HLT scheme) for LEDS, and pin 4 for reading in a pot for a setting the user can adjust.

Looking at the files HLT installs, the ATTiny85 is listed as a 'tiny8' variant, and the header for that variant doesn't seem to define any analog input pins. You might try adding:

Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
const static uint8_t A0 = 1;
const static uint8_t A1 = 7;
const static uint8_t A2 = 3;
const static uint8_t A3 = 2;

to your own header files and seeing if that helps. analogRead()'s bit operations might want the unsigned 8-bit value.
When you void a product warranty, you give up your right to sue the manufacturer if something goes wrong and accept full responsibility for whatever happens next. And then you truly own the product.
