The Counter module allows to count either internal clocks (e.g., to use them as a timer) or trigger events. This can be done either directly, or the counter is started and stopped by triggers. In total, two counters can be configured.
Possible applications are:
- Counting of user defined trigger events
- Counting of clock pulses for timing of data
The Counters Module offers two counters that may be used as a timer or as an event counter. In this application note, both of these main functions are described. The goal of this document is to demonstrate the configuration of the Counters Module by means of investigating an oscillating movement.
