3.2. Timer/ Counter Mode 1 : 16 bit Counter
Mode 1 is the same as Mode 0, except that the Timer register is being
run with all 16 bits.

3.2.1. Generate pulse by using
Timer 1 mode 1
By using Timer function, we can design a pulse generator
and outputs data to port. as you see on figure 3.3.1., with frequency
Build the circuit as shown in figure 3.2.1. As you seen on figure 3.2.1.
P0.0 is connected to LED. Remember, that all we want to do with this lesson
is generate a pulse with frequency 1 Hz
In this step, you must tipe the assembly program to make your Timer
get action, we assume that you have already known the editor, we used
MIDE-51 to edit the program. ( Download File : exp32.zip
Figure 3.2.1. A pulse generator from timer function
Figure 3.2.2. Pulse Periode 1 second
Note that in this mode, with a 12 MHz crystal frequency,
the timer overflows every 65,536 microseconds.
In this experiment, to generate interruption every 1000 micro second,
65536 - 10000 = 55536 d or D8F0h
Interruption will come out every 1000 x 1 microsecond = 0.01 second.
R0 is implemented as a software counter, Register R0 is incremented every
Timer 0 overflows. If Register R7 detected with value 50 then port P0.0
will output data with Ton = 0,01 x 50 second = 0,5 second.

Safe your assembly program above, and name it with timer2.asm (for example)
Compile the program that you have been save by using MIDE-51, see the
Download your hex file ( timer2.hex ) into the microcontroller
by using Microcontroller ATMEL ISP software, see the instruction.After
download this hex file you'll see the action of Timer( of course if
your cable connection and your program are corrected ).
