2008-02-20 00:55:01     CYCLE counter

Vitja Makarov (RUSSIAN FEDERATION)

Message: 51309    Hi!

 

Can I use CYCLE count register as clock count just like Core Timer

 

according to docs:

 

The cycle counter counts CCLK cycles while the program is executing. All

cycles, including execution, wait state, interrupts, and events, are counted

while the processor is in User or Supervisor mode, but the cycle counter

stops counting in Emulator mode.

 

But I'm not sure, shall it tick when proccessor idle as TCOUNT does?

 

vitja.
