2011-05-19 10:03:19 setting bfin simple timer period
Chandrashekhar Lavania (INDIA)
I am trying to set the period for the bfin_simple_timer by using the BFIN_SIMPLE_TIMER_SET_PERIOD ioctl.
I am using BF527, with 2010R1-RC5
My system clock is 100 MHz. Hence according to the BF52xHRM_Rev.1.0 the max period is according to the following formula:
max period = (2^32 -1)/(100 MHz) (formula is given on page 443 i.e Chap 10 page 3 of the HRM)
This comes out to be around 43 sec.
But, the max period I am able to set is around 43 msec.
Any idea what I am missing? and is this normal behaviour?
