Does PWM keep working when calling RLP code


#1

Hi,

We use a PWM signal to control the brightness of the LEDS,
but as you may know from my previous posts, we use a lot of RLP code now.

I’m wondering, does the PWM signal get interrupted when calling into RLP ?
I haven’t tried this yet as I don’t want to blow the fuses just yet :stuck_out_tongue:

(Currently using a PWM signal from a second controller).

PWM is all hardware :slight_smile: The processor can crash but PWM will still work.

If you are using OutputCompare, the signal will be generated as long as you do not disable interrupts in your RLP.

Thnx, that is very good to know.
I have a few more similar questions, but to keep things clear I’ll create a new post for each.

If all goes well I’m going back to China before the end of the year to see if we can turn this in to a real product

And then, will GHI get one of those displays for our office? :slight_smile:

…then we can have the web guys give us access to the last post on forum…then show that post on the display :slight_smile:
