Hello everyone,I'm experiencing a strange behavior with the timer0 on my board, a landtiger with a lpc1768.
The issue is the number MR0 of the counter in order to get a fixed amount of delay and get an interrupt.
My configuration is as follow:-) master clock source of 12Mhz (the crystal installed on the board) and with the 'clock generation schematic' in debug i see the clock is correctly chosen, the cclk is 100 Mhz and so the PCLK/1=100, PCLK/2 50 etc.-)On my 'clock dividers window' the timer0 selection is on CCLK/4 and 25.0000 MHz.-)the prescaler found in 'timer0' window is PR=0-)my MR0 is 0x17D7840 (25*10e6) - it is found by multiplying 1s*25*10e6 1/s= 25*10e6 tick to count 1s.
When i debug the application inserting one breakpoint to the timer activation (LPC_TIM0->TCR = 1) and one on the first instruction of the IRQ_timer0Handler, the time shown the bottom right corner of keil, is 10s.
But if i have selected a 25Mhz clock, no presclarer, why 10s?More strange is that, when i debug in simulation, the timer count 1s. But i cannot figure out what is going wrong with the board.Can you please give me some advice about it? What am i missing?Thank you
I'd try to measure it externally (GPIO, Logic analyzer) instead of using the debugger. It may fool you.
