General Description

The Timer component provides a method to measure intervals. It can implement a basic timer function and offers advanced features such as capture with capture counter and interrupt/DMA generation.

For PSoC 3 and PSoC 5LP devices component can be implemented using FF blocks or UDB. PSoC 4 devices support only UDB implementation. A UDB implementation typically has more features than an FF implementation. If the design is simple enough, consider using FF and save UDB resources for other purposes.
