Has anyone used an OpenPIC timer (see
"c/src/lib/libbsp/powerpc/shared/openpic/") in single-shot mode before?
I seem to be having some trouble with them, in particular ensuring that
an ISR fires only once.
According to "c/src/lib/libbsp/powerpc/mvme3100/README", "The setup
routine allows for specifying single-shot or periodic mode", but I can't
seem to see how to achieve the former.
should at least openpic_maptimer(..., 0) and openpic_inittimer(..., ...,
0) to stop the timer. I've tried that in the ISR and the
openpic_inittimer() call can stall indefinitely in
openpic_safe_writefield() on "while (openpic_read(addr=0xe1041120) &
Any ideas? Perhaps I'm going about this the wrong way to begin with...
What I'm after is a microsecond-precision-ish one-shot timer that'll be
used thousands of times per second.
