Romeo V2.2 with Interrupt Handler blocks Serial Input

I have written a library that handles the HC-SR04 Sensor using hardware interrupts. This code works fine on UNO and MEGA boards but when I load it on a Romeo V2.2 board it doesn't work at all and it blocks serial input which I use to send commands to the board during testing.

I have tried configuring the code to use PIN 3 with Interrupt 1 or PIN 2 with Interrupt 0, but neither work. Any work around or fix for this problem? Again the code works fine on other boards but hangs on the Romeo.

if you want to use pin3 on Romeo(leonardo), then it is different from UNO/Mega2560, namely, D3 is interrupt3 instead of interrupt1, you have to use

Code: Select all
attachInterrupt(3, blink, CHANGE); //Leonardo interrupt3, on D3

While on uno, it should be wiring to D3, and the code should be

Code: Select all
attachInterrupt(1, blink, CHANGE); //Uno interrupt1, on D3

Board ------------------ Digital Pins Usable For Interrupts (from Arduino)
  • Uno, Nano, Mini, other 328-based 2, 3
  • Mega, Mega2560, MegaADK 2, 3, 18, 19, 20, 21
  • Micro, Leonardo, other 32u4-based 0, 1, 2, 3, 7

I think it should be the problem, if I made any mistake, please point me out. Hope it helps.
