I woke up late this morning, again. This time, though, I had a perfect reason: Daylight Savings Time! Spring forward and such. While I was trying to figure out how to change the time on my clock I started thinking about my latest AM335x Sitara ARM Processor design and the sweet Clock Tree Tool that I can download for it. The Clock Tree Tool is an interactive clock tree configuration software that provides information about the clocks and modules in AM335x devices. It allows the user to:

  • Visualize the device clock tree
  • Interact with clock tree elements and view the effect on PRCM registers
  • Interact with the PRCM registers and view the effect on the device clock tree
  • View a trace of all the device registers affected by the user interaction with clock tree

And since its an interactive visual tool, the Clock Tree Tool gives the user a global view of the device clock tree architecture and can be used to determine the exact register settings to obtain a specific configuration.

If only I had such a tool for my clocks at home. Then, I would never be late for work again. Wink. Wink.

Alejandro Erives, Sitara ARM Processors Brand Manager, longs for the days of the Roman water clocks. It was difficult to wear around the wrist, though.
