 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I think I'm getting somewhere with this... try this:
Code:
volatile boolean l;

void TC0_Handler()
{
    long dummy=REG_TC0_SR0; // vital - reading this clears some flag
                            // otherwise you get infinite interrupts
    l= !l;
}

void setup(){
  pinMode(13,OUTPUT);
  pinMode(2,OUTPUT);    // port B pin 25 
  analogWrite(2,255);   // sets up some other registers I haven't worked out yet
  REG_PIOB_PDR = 1<<25; // disable PIO, enable peripheral
  REG_PIOB_ABSR= 1<<25; // select peripheral B
  REG_TC0_WPMR=0x54494D00; // enable write to registers
  REG_TC0_CMR0=0b00000000000010011100010000000000; // set channel mode register (see datasheet)
  REG_TC0_RC0=100000000; // counter period
  REG_TC0_RA0=30000000;  // PWM value
  REG_TC0_CCR0=0b101;    // start counter
  REG_TC0_IER0=0b00010000; // enable interrupt on counter=rc
  REG_TC0_IDR0=0b11101111; // disable other interrupts

  NVIC_EnableIRQ(TC0_IRQn); // enable TC0 interrupts

}

void loop(){
      digitalWrite(13,l);
}
The timer controls the output of pin 2 and the interrupt toggles a flag which is output on pin 13.



Could you please somebody kindly explain me the Handler part and "!l" please?

I cannot find such section on the data sheet.

Thanks.

A "Handler" is a default callback function, in this case, called when the timer is triggered.
In order to "reset" the timer, and let's say, "tell the uController that you handled the callback", you must reset a flag (the one in the first line), otherwise, it would get into a infinite loop, as the flag is not erased.

If you wish, you can use my library, where all timers are fully implemented: https://github.com/ivanseidel/DueTimer

Hope it helps! (Library is commented, so it might help...)

 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hey guys,

I am trying to get the timer interrupt works. I used your library, also I tried using without library, but
if I set the frequency for 200kHz, I always get a waveform on oscilloscope with the half frequency, so 100kHz.
Is that right? I couldn't get 1MHz as someone said in a post before, the maximum was 585kHz, when I set the frequency for 2MHz.

Someone can help me?

Thanks

Code:
//Chirp wave output

//#include <DueTimer.h>

#define TAM 4095

int frequency = 1000000;
volatile int i = 0;

void waveGenerate(){
  dacc_write_conversion_data(DACC_INTERFACE, (i=!i)*4095);
  //dacc_write_conversion_data(DACC_INTERFACE, sinWave[i++]);
  //if(i==4096)
  //  i=0;
}

void setup(){
  Serial.begin(9600);
  pinMode(DAC0, OUTPUT);
  analogWriteResolution(12);
  pmc_enable_periph_clk(DACC_INTERFACE_ID);
  dacc_reset(DACC_INTERFACE);
  dacc_set_transfer_mode(DACC_INTERFACE, 0);
  dacc_set_power_save(DACC_INTERFACE, 0, 1); //Sleep mode = 0 (Normal Mode), Fast Wake Up = 1 (Enabled)
  dacc_set_timing(DACC_INTERFACE, 0x0, 1, 0x0); //REFRESH 0x0, MAXS = 1 (Max Speed Mode Enabled), STARTUP = 0 (0 periods of DACClock)
  
  dacc_set_writeprotect(DACC_INTERFACE, 0); //Disable
  dacc_set_analog_control(DACC_INTERFACE, DACC_ACR_IBCTLCH0(0x02) |
                   DACC_ACR_IBCTLCH1(0x02) |
                   DACC_ACR_IBCTLDACCORE(0x01));
  dacc_disable_trigger(DACC_INTERFACE);
  dacc_set_channel_selection(DACC_INTERFACE, 0);
  dacc_enable_channel(DACC_INTERFACE, 0);
  

  Timer4.attachInterrupt(waveGenerate).setFrequency(frequency).start();
}

void loop(){

}

  Timer4.attachInterrupt(waveGenerate).setFrequency(frequency).start();
}

void loop(){

}


Notice that:
Setting timer interrupt for 1hz (for example), would generate 1seccond of HIGH and 1 seccond of LOW, read as 0.5hz (1/2 of the interrupt frequency)
If you set it to 200khz, than you would be setting High 100.000 times per seccond, and low 100.000times per seccond. witch is 100.000hz (100khz, or, half of 200khz)

Thanks for your response.

Actually I have used your header file + Simple timer but I dunno why pin 13 does not blink. Should I change it somewhere?

I merge two files as I couldn't use them separately as follows.


Code:

#include "Arduino.h"

#include <inttypes.h>

class DueTimer
{
protected:
int timer; // Stores the object timer id (to access Timer struct array)
static int _frequency[9]; // Stores the object timer frequency (to access know current timer period, frequency...)

static uint8_t bestClock(uint32_t frequency, uint32_t& retRC); // Picks the best clock to lower the error

public:
struct Timer
{
Tc *tc;
uint32_t channel;
IRQn_Type irq;
};

static DueTimer getAvaliable();

static const Timer Timers[9]; // Store timer configuration (static, as it's fix for every object)
static void (*callbacks[9])(); // Needs to be public, because the handlers are outside class

DueTimer(int _timer);
DueTimer attachInterrupt(void (*isr)());
DueTimer detachInterrupt();
DueTimer start(long microseconds = -1);
DueTimer stop();
DueTimer setFrequency(long frequency);
DueTimer setPeriod(long microseconds);


long getFrequency();
long getPeriod();
};

extern DueTimer Timer; // Just to call Timer.getAvaliable instead of Timer::getAvaliable()

extern DueTimer Timer0;
extern DueTimer Timer1;
extern DueTimer Timer2;
extern DueTimer Timer3;
extern DueTimer Timer4;
extern DueTimer Timer5;

Hi,
Apparently you have only included the header file... no implementation is made to the class DueTimer.
Why did you added the header to the code, instead of including the library? Did it compiled? Did you installed the library correcly, and examples are on the examples menu of arduino IDE?

Dear Ivan,


Let me explain you what exactly I do. I go to the Simple Timer and copy and paste it in a new Arduino page and save on my desktop. (It has the header #include <DueTimer.h>)

Thereafter, I go to the header file and save it on the desktop as well beside the Simple Timer.

But when I run it has the following error:

fatal error: DueTimer.h: No such file or directory compilation terminated.


Can you please kindly advise me about this?

Thanks.

Henrimontreal, you are only getting the header - you need all the code which is packaged up as a library and placed within the Arduino IDE Library folder prior to writing your program.  See http://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-all-about-arduino-libraries-install-use on libraries and how they are used.  Then you can get the timer library, install it like in the tutorial, then your code will not give such error(s).  Putting the .h file on your desktop is not enough.

Using this code, you can set a timer for any of the ISRs TC0_Handler through TC8_Handler, see table of parameters below. It is possible to use the timers without a physically mapped pin, such as TC1 channel 0 (TC3_Handler) shown here:

Code:
volatile boolean l;

//TC1 ch 0
void TC3_Handler()
{
        TC_GetStatus(TC1, 0);
        digitalWrite(13, l = !l);
}

void startTimer(Tc *tc, uint32_t channel, IRQn_Type irq, uint32_t frequency) {
        pmc_set_writeprotect(false);
        pmc_enable_periph_clk((uint32_t)irq);
        TC_Configure(tc, channel, TC_CMR_WAVE | TC_CMR_WAVSEL_UP_RC | TC_CMR_TCCLKS_TIMER_CLOCK4);
        uint32_t rc = VARIANT_MCK/128/frequency; //128 because we selected TIMER_CLOCK4 above
        TC_SetRA(tc, channel, rc/2); //50% high, 50% low
        TC_SetRC(tc, channel, rc);
        TC_Start(tc, channel);
        tc->TC_CHANNEL[channel].TC_IER=TC_IER_CPCS;
        tc->TC_CHANNEL[channel].TC_IDR=~TC_IER_CPCS;
        NVIC_EnableIRQ(irq);
}

void setup(){
        pinMode(13,OUTPUT);
        startTimer(TC1, 0, TC3_IRQn, 4); //TC1 channel 0, the IRQ for that channel and the desired frequency
}

void loop(){
}

Here is the table of parameters:
ISR/IRQTC        ChannelDue pins
TC0TC002, 13
TC1TC0160, 61
TC2TC0258
TC3TC10none  <- this line in the example above
TC4TC11none
TC5TC12none
TC6TC204, 5
TC7TC213, 10
TC8TC2211, 12



As you said:

TC6   TC2   0   4, 5


but when I change TC  to TC2 and choose channel 0 and choose either 4 or 5 pin it does not blink!

Do I need to change the clock as well?  Actually we do not have clock 6!!!

Can you please explain me how can I get frequency from the other channels and timers please?

Thanks!

Well, this is so strange! Even though, I copy them into the Arduino's Library as well as the same folder on my desktop. I still have the same error!  smiley-eek  I am so frustrated!  smiley-yell

Hi,
I have sent a new commit to GitHub, with a new organization to facilitate installation.
Please, download egain (https://github.com/ivanseidel/DueTimer/archive/master.zip) the files, and install as explained on Arduino site.

Thanks,
Ivan Seidel

Thanks guys for this mission. I got 1 MHz working on the DUE, but I found that digitalWrite is slow. So it messes up my tc_handler. Doesn't leave it anymore. And I need to write in the ISR, maximum control every microsecond. You have a fast alternative for digitalWrite ?

after configuring the pin, you can easily do as it follows:

Output HIGH on PIN 0 of port D:
REG_PIOD_SODR = 0x01; ( equivalent to: 0b0000000000000001);

Output low on PIN 0 of port D:
REG_PIOD_CODR = 0x01; ( equivalent to: 0b0000000000000001);

And, to configure PIN 0 of port D as output pin:
REG_PIOD_OER = 0x01; ( equivalent to: 0b0000000000000001);

Notice, that even digital pins are buffered, so, trying to read this register, will return NULL or some random value...

Also, writing more than one pin on the register will cause NO problem.

Also, to know wich port the pin relates with, read the arduino description, right on top, there is an link to check this...

There is one other easy way of doing this, but i'm without a computer right now...

digitalWriteDirect() will work faster than 1MHz, although it may be a challenge to get it that fast in an interrupt due to overhead. Try it anyway.

Code:
inline void digitalWriteDirect(int pin, boolean val){
  if(val) g_APinDescription[pin].pPort -> PIO_SODR = g_APinDescription[pin].ulPin;
  else    g_APinDescription[pin].pPort -> PIO_CODR = g_APinDescription[pin].ulPin;
}

inline int digitalReadDirect(int pin){
  return !!(g_APinDescription[pin].pPort -> PIO_PDSR & g_APinDescription[pin].ulPin);
}
