Quantity of PWM Pins
« on: March 02, 2016, 09:49:24 am »
I'm using a bare ATTINY85 to prototype before I actually commit my Digispark to my project. ( I've fried a Digispark in the past and bare attiny's are cheaper to fry).

My question is: How does the Digispark have 3 PWM pins when the attiny85 only shows two in the spec? What manner of magic is this? Please keep it simple I'm not to bright.

From http://digistump.com/wiki/digispark/tutorials/rgb#programming (read the "PWM note" part at the bottom) I believe it use software pwm for the third one ?
