Outline

Outline

  • Application

  • Theory

  • Implementation

  • Results and Discussions

  • Summary and Future Work


Examples of application

Examples of Application

  • Calibrate other equipment

  • Guitar tuner (attach to a crystal)

  • Measure rpm of wheel


Theory keeping track of time

Theory: Keeping track of time

  • System clock is 22.45 MHz.

  • Timer count = 22,450 → 1 ms

  • Start counter

  • Counter counts external clock pulses

  • Every 1 ms → interrupt

  • Count 1000 in ISR → 1 second delay


Theory counting frequency

Theory: counting frequency

  • Every second: stop counter

  • Store value in counter register

  • Counter registers:16 bits → count 65,535

  • Higher frequencies: track counter overflows


Theory lcd display

Theory: LCD display

  • Display the frequency on LCD

  • Integer → string

  • Pass string to LCD routine

Implementation initializing cross bars

Implementation: Initializing cross-bars

  • Timer 2 to count internal clock pulses

  • Counter 4 to count external frequency

  • Configuring the Crossbar registers

    void init_crossbar (void)

    {

    XBR0 = 0x04; // UART 0 TX to P0.0, RX to P0.1

    XBR1 = 0x40; // Sysclk out

    XBR2 = 0x58; // Enable cross bar rout T4 to port pin

    }


Implementation crossbars

Implementation: Crossbars

XBR1=0x40

XBR2=0x58


Implementation initializing ports

Implementation: Initializing Ports

  • Configuring ports

    void init_ports(void)

    {

    P0MDOUT = 0x00; //configure P0 as input port

    P0=0x04;

    P1MDOUT = 0xFF; // P1 is push pull

    P2MDOUT = 0xFF;// P2 as push pull

    P3MDOUT = 0x00;

    P5 = 0x00;

    }


Implementation initializing timer and counter

Implementation initialize timer

Implementation: Initialize timer

void init_timer(int cnt)

{

T2CON =0x00; //clear Timer 2

T4CON=0x03; //clear Timer4 config Timer 4 as counter

CKCON= 0X20; //Timer 2 uses sys clk
