The Clock Generator module provides up to two clocks with user-defined frequency. Each clock generator may run in a direct mode or be started and stopped by user-defined trigger events. Each clock can be used in the GPIO interface for both digital and analog processing.
Possible Applications are:
- Timing of internal or external processes
- Generation of periodic trigger events
Synchronization with external devices
The PicoScale allows synchronization with external devices. In this application note, a step-by-step tutorial is given of how to extract data synchronized with TTL pulses from a external function generator. Furthermore, the PicoScale can generate a master clock, which can subsequently be used by external devices as well as internal trigger source.
