Frequency measurement using Timer
I would like to use the a Timer in Psoc creator to determine the period of a signal and to deduce from it its frequency. I know I can use a frequency counter with a PWM but I do not want to use this technique. I would like to have a very fast update on my frequency measurement in order to be implemented in a control law.
I have attached a very simple project where I try to make sense of the Timer function. I have tried to read the signal Period using the ReadPeriod() function but it always display 0xFFFF no matter what. I have tried most of the other functions and I cannot make much sense of them, I have read the documentation and I thought this ReadPeriod() was the way to go. Can somebody help me seting up the Timer correctly and tell me how to read the period of the signal?
Thanks a lot,
