Hi everyone,

It is just that i am trying to pull out the features of count7 counters in UDB and hence a lot of posts on that. So, after having realised the use of the count7 module to design counters and use their terminal count efficiently, we will now try designing timers out of that. 

Designing timers with the count7 cell is very simple. All we need to do is to make the cy_route_ld - `TRUE and we should also load the period value appropriately. To load the period value use the, cy_period parameter. To start the timer, we need to issue a load signal initially. Once it is loaded initially the Timer will run in a continuous mode.


Happy designing,

Rahul Ram

don't forget those count7 things have to be software started, cannot be done only via hardware.
