Hello all,

I'm trying to use the TOM for output generation of PWM.
The PWM works, but I'm having issues with the FXCLK selection. FXCLK[0 ... 5] is the clock source for TOM and should offer different frequencies (/1, /8, /256, /4096, /65536) should offer different frequencies,
but no matter which one I choose, the output frequency is always the same (as if I chose /1 clock).

I'm using ILLD

Configuration of GTM, CMU and TOM is below:

Ifx_GTM *gtm = &MODULE_GTM;

// enable GTM

// GTM global clocks init
IfxGtm_Cmu_setGclkFrequency(gtm, (float)GTM_CFG_GCLK_FREQUENCY);

// configure cmu_clk1 as clock source for FXCLK
IfxGtm_Cmu_setClkFrequency(gtm, IfxGtm_Cmu_Clk_1, 10000000);

// enable cmu_clk1
IfxGtm_Cmu_enableClocks(gtm, IFXGTM_CMU_CLKEN_CLK1);

// select clock source for FXCLKx (ILLD doesn't support this)
gtm->CMU.FXCLK.CTRL.B.FXCLK_SEL = 2; // selects cmu_clk1 as FXCLK source

// enable FXCLK clocks
IfxGtm_Cmu_enableClocks(gtm, IFXGTM_CMU_CLKEN_FXCLK);


// tom config struct
IfxGtm_Tom_Pwm_Config TomConfig;

// init config to default values
IfxGtm_Tom_Pwm_initConfig(&TomConfig, gtm);

// set source clock
TomConfig.clock = IfxGtm_Tom_Ch_ClkSrc_cmuFxclk2; // should be cmu_clk1 / 256, but is actually cmu_clk1 ??

// init config values
TomConfig.tom = _tomOutChannel->tom;
TomConfig.tomChannel = _tomOutChannel->channel; = _tomOutChannel; = PWM_LSDRV_MODE; = PWM_LSDRV_PAD_DRIVER;
TomConfig.dutyCycle = 50;
TomConfig.period = 100;

// init TOM
IfxGtm_Tom_Pwm_init(&_tomDriver, &TomConfig);


I have checked the register, which shows the clock selection for TOM, and the value is correct (2 = IfxGtm_Tom_Ch_ClkSrc_cmuFxclk2, should be CmuClk1/256).
The PWM output frequency is as if the clock selection was just CmuClk1/1 aka 256 times too fast.

Has anyone managed to run the TOM with divided FXCLK as the clock source?
Has anyone had similar problems?

Thank you!

It is workable as follows, where revising "g_tomConfig.clock = IfxGtm_Tom_Ch_ClkSrc_cmuFxclk1 "can change the longer period of PWM

IfxGtm_Tom_Pwm_Config g_tomConfig; /* Timer configuration structure */
IfxGtm_Tom_Pwm_Driver g_tomDriver; /* Timer Driver structure */

void initGtmTomPwm(void)
IfxGtm_enable(&MODULE_GTM); /* Enable GTM */

IfxGtm_Cmu_enableClocks(&MODULE_GTM, IFXGTM_CMU_CLKEN_FXCLK); /* Enable the FXU(Fixed Clock Generation) clock */

/* Initialize the configuration structure with default parameters */
IfxGtm_Tom_Pwm_initConfig(&g_tomConfig, &MODULE_GTM);
//Update default setting as tom from IfxGtm_Tom_0 to IfxGtm_TOM2_5_TOUT91_P13_0_OUT
g_tomConfig.tom = SERVO_7.tom; /* Select the TOM depending on the SERVO_7 */
g_tomConfig.tomChannel =; /* Select the channel depending on the SERVO_7 */
g_tomConfig.clock = IfxGtm_Tom_Ch_ClkSrc_cmuFxclk1; /* brief div 16 */
g_tomConfig.period = PWM_PERIOD; /* Set the timer period */ = &SERVO_7; /* Set the LEDSERVO_7 port pin as output */
g_tomConfig.synchronousUpdateEnabled = TRUE; /* Enable synchronous update */

IfxGtm_Tom_Pwm_init(&g_tomDriver, &g_tomConfig); /* Initialize the GTM TOM */
IfxGtm_Tom_Pwm_start(&g_tomDriver, TRUE); /* Start the PWM */
