My first goal after getting someone elses good compiling, was to toggle a pin on my own. I think for my first attempt to generate a frequency, I will just turn a pin on and off at a given rate.
My target frequency is 2600Hz, and if I want to generate a square wave (which I get by turning things on and off) I need to toggle the pin at twice that frequency. So with a target frequency of 5200Hz, I can now figure out the period which is 0.000192308 seconds or 192 microseconds.
Now that I knew how long a delay to use, I needed to figure out how to actually toggle a pin… I struggled with the docs a fair amount here. The example code uses an LED type so I looked at the source code. I should have just tried that code directly, but I checked the docs first and got very confused. The LED uses a PEx type which implements OutputPin but somehow I missed that. Instead, I was looking at the Output type which didn’t seem to have any methods associated with it…
Anyway, the end result is that if you have an
OutputPin you can call
OutputPin comes from embedded_hal which should theoretically work on all embedded rust targets!
