The Angular Timer automatically converts timed-based events to degrees with no processing required by the microcontroller (MCU) core.

Features

  • Automatically provides phase angle conversion for control of rotational and periodic events
    • Examples: motors, AC mains, TRIAC and more
  • Converts time-based signals to degrees
  • Generates interrupts based on angles
  • Detects missed events
  • Simplified code development
    • Program in terms of degrees
    • Automatically adjusts for frequency changes
    • Simplifies math required

Benefits

  • Increased accuracy
  • Improved performance
  • Reduced code size
  • Core-independent operation
  • Operation while in low-power sleep

Title Abstract Duration
Angular Timer Overview The Angular Timer peripheral allows the software designer to interpret repeating signals as an angle measurement vs a time measurement. A repeating signal is converted into a 360-degree-angular representation from which all measurements are based. 1.5 hours
