InitTimer10

Syntax:

InitTimer10 source, prescaler

Command Availability:

Available on Microchip microcontrollers with a Timer 10 module.



Explanation:

Parameters for this timer are detailed in the table below:

Parameter Description

prescaler

The value of the prescaler for this specific timer. See the tables below for permitted values.

postscaler

The value of the postscaler for this specific timer. See the tables below for permitted values.



prescaler can be one of the following settings:

Prescaler Value Primary GCB Constant Constant Equates

1:16

PS10_16

1:64

PS10_64

Note that a 1:64 prescale is only avaialable on certain midrange microcontrollers. Please refer to the datasheet to determine if a 1:64 prescale is supported by a spectific microcontroller.



postscaler slows the rate of the interrupt generation (or WDT reset) from a counter/timer by dividing it down.

On Microchip PIC microcontroller one of the following constants where the Postscaler Rate Select bits are in the range of 1 to 16.
