HI, ganesh
 
Do i have to enable clock as well when using TIMER_getCount()? If i enable it, the same error message (invalid CIO command) comes out.
 
Thank you

HI, Ganesh

Thanks for your answer. When i use TIMER_getCount() as you suggested, i always get 0. I have read through the help docoment about CSL, configured CDB file, used TIMER_start(). Anything else needed to be done to get it work?

Thank you

Yong

Hi Yong,
Sorry I couldn't reply to your earlier mail as I was busy with some other stuff.
I would discourage you from employing clock because it would be disadvantageous in case you wish that your application is repetitive.
In the sense, if you forget to Enable Clock from the Profiler menu, it wouldn't generate any stuff.
 
Coming to your problem, it has been a known problem that cio (Console I/O) module always has given problems to developers be it on any platform.
I would suggest you to create a separate memory section either in SDRAM or ISRAM but with a different name and space enough for only cio module. (You can know the space reqd. from the map file generated with earlier memory configurations). Place CIO in this section and I presume you shouldn't have any other problems regarding the same.
 
On the other hand, a simple and straight solution would be to use the TIMER module instead. Include csl (It will anyways be included already). Use the Timer module. You need to define the TIMER_Handle, Unsigned long variables to hold the values. You can find more information on using the same in the CSL documentation. Use TIMER_getCount which can make your application run independently i.e. in terms of the IDE and profiling.
 
Hope this helps.
Thanks and Regards,
Ganesh

Hi, Piyush
 
Thanks for your answer
 
When i enable the clock by going to the menu Profiler->Enable Clock and run the program again, the stdout window says invalid CIO command(17). There's no such problem when i does not enable clock. Can you tell me what's wrong.
 
Thank you

Hi Yong,

The method is OK. Maybe you forgot to enable the clock
by going to the menu Profiler->Enable Clock.
As I suggested earlier, working with timer registers,
using CSL macros might be a little more efficient. The
flow would be the same as you use with clock(), but
instead TIMER macros would be used to get timer count
values.//I would modify your code to give an example
main()
{
//Assuming that you configure the timer 2 in CDB
//For each frame restart the counter,
// to avoid wraparound problems
TIMER_FSET(CTL2,HLD,1);
TIMER_FSET(CTL2,GO,1);
DecodeFrame()
frameTime = TIMER_RGET(CNT2);//Total time for

//eachframe
}

//Then for each function
func1
{
unsigned int start, stop;
static unsigned int sum = 0; //the function costs
static int enter_c = 0; //to count the times the
start TIMER_RGET(CNT2);//clock_t start=clock();

// function is called
//yy end

//At the end of every function, i put
//yy added, record is a structure
//
record[0].n= ++enter_c;
stop = TIMER_RGET(CNT2);//stop = clock();
sum += stop-start-overhead_c;
record[0].t = sum;
}

Piyush

Hi Yong,
You need to perform initialization steps for the Timer Module before you can start the module.
Also send across your code, if possible. I will try and see what is the mistake you are committing.
BTW, you needn't enable the clock. The clock is enabled through the Software only.
HTH,
Ganesh

Hi Yong,
Did you set the configuration parameters for the module properly ? Are you using the correct CSL for the chip ?
Have you set the parameters of timercfg0 correctly ?
Perform a reset timer before you config your timer i.e. TIMER_config.
Also one more important thing is that you need to multiply the difference by 8 i.e. any output from the TIMER module is scaled down by 8. You are missing the multiplication by 8.
Kindly verify the same.
Thanks and Regards,
Ganesh

Timer Operation                                       Hold
Period Value                                               0x0
Counter Value                                            0x0
Control REgister(CTL)                            0x0

Hi Yong,
Change the parameters to the following and verify:
Control register : 0x000002c0
Period register: 0xffffffff
Count register: 0x00000000
Also you can perform TIMER_reset(hTimer) as even though it might open the timer in Reset mode, manually performing a reset won't harm.
Try these. It should definitely help.
Ganesh

HI, Ganesh
 
A typo
Control Register (CTL) is 0x200 instead of 0x0
 
You said output of TIMER_getCount should be multiplied by 8. Is it because you set Input Clock Source(CLKSRC) to (CPU clock)/8? Can i use the default value "External Source"?
 
I think the timer device has been reset by TIMER_open(TIMER_DEV1, TIMER_OPEN_RESET )
The 2nd parameter TIMER_OPEN_RESET does it.
 
Thanks

Hi, Ganesh
 
I tried these, but unfortunately all TIMER_getCount() values are still 0. I tried TIMER_setCount(htimer1, 0x55), then TIMER_getCount(htimer1), the value is 0x55. It seems the timer register remains constant and doesn't increment at all.
