PWM output

Cause

The key fact to remember is that the counts (in the built in calculator) are no longer counts but "ticks" or .01 seconds. The second key fact is that the A/D converter has NOTHING to do with this process. It only applies to voltage or current outputs, not pulsed outputs.

Resolution

If your minimum pulse is a tenth of a second you would enter counts low as 10. Full pulse is 5.2 seconds, 520 for counts high.
