Well Poop – That Time When a Resonator Broke My Heart.

November 18, 2017

I’ve spent hours trying to figure out why my bootloader wouldn’t work in the ROM with a 2 MHz resonator – the timing seemed mysteriously way off. In desperation I tried a different CPU board with a 4 MHz resonator(adjusting the code) and it worked. I measured the clock on the original board and found the the clearly marked 2 MHz resonator was oscillating at 6 MHz!

Now my code still doesn’t work but at least that’s my fault!
