Other Parts Discussed in Thread: EK-TM4C1294XL
I am having some problems in understanding how to set up a timer to measure the interval between two edges of an input frequency. In the device datasheet it says " In Edge-Time mode, the timer is configured as a 24-bit or 48-bit up- or down-counter..." inferring that the counters used are either 32 or 64bit. However in the Tiva Driver User guide the only options I can find for time measurement are
TIMER_CFG_A_CAP_TIME - Half-width edge time capture
TIMER_CFG_A_CAP_TIME_UP - Half-width edge time capture that counts up instead of
down (not available on all parts)
These suggest 16 or 32 bit. There doesn't appear to be an option to do a full width time measurement.
How do I set this up?
