TCCR1B – Timer/Counter1 Control Register B

When using the I/O specific commands IN and OUT, the I/O addresses 0x00 - 0x3F must be used. When addressing I/O Registers as data space using LD and ST instructions, 0x20 must be added to these offset addresses.

Bit 7 – ICNC1: Input Capture Noise Canceler

Input Capture Noise Canceler

Setting this bit (to one) activates the Input Capture Noise Canceler. When the noise canceler is activated, the input from the Input Capture pin (ICP1) is filtered. The filter function requires four successive equal valued samples of the ICP1 pin for changing its output. The Input Capture is therefore delayed by four Oscillator cycles when the noise canceler is enabled.

Bit 6 – ICES1: Input Capture Edge Select

Input Capture Edge Select

This bit selects which edge on the Input Capture pin (ICP1) that is used to trigger a capture event. When the ICES1 bit is written to zero, a falling (negative) edge is used as trigger, and when the ICES1 bit is written to one, a rising (positive) edge will trigger the capture.

When a capture is triggered according to the ICES1 setting, the counter value is copied into the Input Capture Register (ICR1). The event will also set the Input Capture Flag (ICF1), and this can be used to cause an Input Capture Interrupt, if this interrupt is enabled.

When the ICR1 is used as TOP value (see description of the WGM13:0 bits located in the TCCR1A and the TCCR1B Register), the ICP1 is disconnected and consequently the Input Capture function is disabled.

Bit 4 – WGM13: Waveform Generation Mode

Waveform Generation Mode

Refer to TCCR1A.

Bit 3 – WGM12: Waveform Generation Mode

Waveform Generation Mode

Refer to TCCR1A.

Bits 2:0 – CS1n: Clock Select [n = 0:2]

Clock Select [n = 0:2]

The three Clock Select bits select the clock source to be used by the Timer/Counter. Refer to figures Timer/Counter Timing Diagram, Setting of OCF1x, no Prescaling and clk_I/OTimer/Counter Timing Diagram, Setting of OCF1x, with Prescaler (f/8).

Table 1. Clock Select Bit Description
CA12 CA11 CS10 Description
0 0 0 No clock source (Timer/Counter stopped).
0 0 1 clkI/O/1 (No prescaling)
0 1 0 clkI/O/8 (From prescaler)
0 1 1 clkI/O/64 (From prescaler)
1 0 0 clkI/O/256 (From prescaler)
1 0 1 clkI/O/1024 (From prescaler)
1 1 0 External clock source on T1 pin. Clock on falling edge.
1 1 1 External clock source on T1 pin. Clock on rising edge.

If external pin modes are used for the Timer/Counter1, transitions on the T1 pin will clock the counter even if the pin is configured as an output. This feature allows software control of the counting.
