We see that the standard C function "clock_t clock()" is implemented and can be used for the ADSP21489. My question is -- exactly how is this implemented internally? Does the ADSP21489 have a kind of "master timer" that is always running (like, for example, modern Intel processors in the PC) and which gives high resolution timing information? If so, where can we find documentation about that timer.


Thank you,
