11. Timer Counter (TC)

The StampA5D3x features two blocks of timer counters with three counters each. The second block is not present on all variations of the StampA5D3x series. Compare Table 2.1, “SAMA5D3X Device Differences”.

The TC consists of three independent 16-bit Timer/Counter units. They may be cascaded to form a 32-bit or 48-bit timer/counter. The timers can run on the internal clock sources MCK/2, MCK/8, MCK/32, MCK/128, SLCK or the output of another timer channel. External clocks may be used as well as the counters can generate signals on timer events. They also can be used to generate PWM signals.
