<avr/io.h>: AVR device-specific IO definitions


#define _PROTECTED_WRITE(reg, value)

Detailed Description

#include <avr/io.h>

This header file includes the apropriate IO definitions for the device that has been specified by the -mmcu= compiler command-line switch. This is done by diverting to the appropriate file <avr/ioXXXX.h> which should never be included directly. Some register names common to all AVR devices are defined directly within <avr/common.h>, which is included in <avr/io.h>, but most of the details come from the respective include file.

Note that this file always includes the following files:

#include <avr/sfr_defs.h>
#include <avr/portpins.h>
#include <avr/common.h>
#include <avr/version.h>

See <avr/sfr_defs.h>: Special function registers for more details about that header file.

Included are definitions of the IO register set and their respective bit values as specified in the Atmel documentation. Note that inconsistencies in naming conventions, so even identical functions sometimes get different names on different devices.

Also included are the specific names useable for interrupt function definitions as documented here.

Finally, the following macros are defined:

Macro Definition Documentation

#define _PROTECTED_WRITE (   reg,

Write value value to IO register reg that is protected through the Xmega configuration change protection (CCP) mechanism. This implements the timed sequence that is required for CCP.

Example to modify the CPU clock:
