Oscillators, Clocks, and Timers
101060110303001030900Oscillators, Clocks, and TimersIn earlier microcontrollers, there was just one clock (supplied by one oscillator) to handle all time-based operations. In modern microcontrollers this approach has been abandoned, and different time-based operations are handled by different clocks (supplied by different oscillators). As a modern microcontroller, the MSP430 also has this property. Therefore, it has three oscillators and three clocks. In this chapter, we will start with the oscillators. The clocks of the MPS430 are managed by the basic clock module+ (BCM+). Next, we will focus on it. The CPU also depends on a clock signal to operate. Th…
