Hello,

I am using one PWM, one Delay and one Counter to implement two different functions. These are  1) Create a single pulse with a certain delay 2) Create a certain number of pulses again starting with a delay. Please find below how I configured the TCPWM's for that purpose.

Here are the two functions I use to get all running:

void SinglePulse(Mode_Parameter *mode_parameter)

{

    uint32_t compare1, pwm_period ;

    cy_stc_tcpwm_pwm_config_t *ptr = (cy_stc_tcpwm_pwm_config_t *) &Pulse_Gen_1_config;

   

    ptr->runMode = CY_TCPWM_PWM_ONESHOT;  //One Shot Configuration

    ptr->compare0 = 75000;

    ptr->period0 = 100000;

    Delay_Counter_1_Start();

    Delay_Counter_1_SetPeriod(400000); 

   

    Pulse_Gen_1_Start();

}

The second one is to generate a PWM for a certain number of pulses (controlled by the Counter_1)

void MultiPulse (Mode_Parameter *mode_parameter)

{

    uint32_t compare1, pwm_period ;

    cy_stc_tcpwm_pwm_config_t *ptr = (cy_stc_tcpwm_pwm_config_t *) &Pulse_Gen_1_config;

   

    ptr->runMode = CY_TCPWM_PWM_CONTINUOUS; //Continuous Run

    ptr->compare0 = 75000;

    ptr->period0 = 100000;

    Delay_Counter_1_Start();

    Delay_Counter_1_SetPeriod(0);

   

    Counter_1_Start(); //This is pretty much the only difference from the previous function

    Pulse_Gen_1_Start();

}

They seem to work fine the first time after boot. If you call the other one as second, the counter behaves like the previous configuration.

Scenario 1: (After reset)

1) Call the SinglePulse first. Single pulse achieved.

2) Call next the MultiPulse. I don't get multiple passes, one a single pass.

Scenario 2: (After reset)

1) Call the MultiplePulse first. I get the exact number of pulses I need and it it stops.

2) Call next the Single Pulse. I get the delay and the first pulse but then the pulse never stops. It just keeps coming.

I guess I need somehow to reinitialize the TCPWM's to get the effect of a board reset, but I could't do that.

Thanks in advance.

Dear EmBa-san,

I hacked a little today.

Then I found that Pulse_Gen_config is defined as "const".

So when I assigned a value to ptr->runMode, the program jumped to exception handling.

Then I provided local variable of same type "pulse_gen_config" and tested with a minimum circuit

using CY8CKIT-062-BLE.

When I set break points at each CyDelay(1000) ;

After SinglePulse(), one time black to light

After MultiPulse() , LED blinks till the next SinglePulse() will be called.

Hi,

Last time I played with PSoC6 PWM, I needed to call _TriggerStart() after _Enable() to restart a stopped PWM.

I wonder if calling

     Delay_Counter_1_TriggerStart()  ;

after

     Delay_Counter_1_SetPeriod(x) ;

helps or not.

Hello Moto,

Unfortuantely it didn't help. To be more clear, the problem is not restarting a stopped PWM. It is to change the run mode of the TCPWM from "continuous" to "one shot" or vice versa. Once the TCPWM starts in either mode, I cannot switch to the other one without resetting the board.

Thanks

Hi,

I'm sorry that I missed the point.

Then how about replacing

     Pulse_Gen_1_Start() ;

with

     Pulse_Gen_1_Init(&pulse_gen_1_config) ;

     Pulse_Gen_1_Enable() ;

Because, _Start() call Init() only once.

From the 2nd time, it calls only Enable() ;
