class Timer – control internal timers

Note

Memory can’t be allocated inside irq handlers (an interrupt) and so exceptions raised within a handler don’t give much information. See micropython.alloc_emergency_exception_buf() for how to get around this limitation.

Constructors

class machine.Timer(id, ...)

Methods

timer.deinit()

Deinitializes the timer. Disables all channels and associated IRQs. Stops the timer, and disables the timer peripheral.

class TimerChannel — setup a channel for a timer

Timer channels are used to generate/capture a signal using a timer.

TimerChannel objects are created using the Timer.channel() method.

Methods
