Which gets you to 60 Hz - How?Search "why 32,768 Hz" and you will find many explanations of both the how[/i) and the why.
32,768 = 2^15, so repeatedly dividing by 2 gives you 1Hz exactly.
546.Does the jam input need to be 546 or 545.
Cute trick. Must have been fun working out the ratios. But still, can't the PICAXE do that internally, or are you saying it isn't fast enough to do everything necessary within one input clock cycle?Because to obtain exactly 120 Hz from 32768 Hz, one has to jam the counter for a 273 divisor for 14 periods, and then jam for a 274 divisor for 1 period.
