Counter/Timer Device


Performs counter timer tasks such as encoder position measurement, event counting, period measurement, pulse measurement and generation, and frequency measurement in desktop systems.

Counter/Timer Devices perform a variety of tasks, including event counting, time period/frequency measurement, quadrature encoder position measurement, pulse width measurement, pulse generation, and pulse train generation. Example applications include generation of retriggerable pulses, two-signal edge separation measurements, continuous buffered event counting, and continuous buffered pulse train measurements. The devices can provide digital debouncing filters, high-speed DMA transfers, and isolation.
