AXI Timer


This page gives an overview of Axi Timer Linux driver which is available as part of the Linux distribution.The LogiCOREā„¢ IP AXI Timer/Counter is a 32/ 64-bit timer module that interfaces to the AXI4-Lite interface.

HW IP features

  • AXI interface based on the AXI4-Lite specification
  • Two programmable interval timers with interrupt, event generation, and event capture capabilities
  • Configurable counter width
  • One Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) output
  • Cascaded operation of timers in generate and capture modes

            clocks = <&clk_bus_0>;
            compatible = "xlnx,xps-timer-1.00.a";
            interrupt-parent = <&axi_intc_1>;
            interrupts = <2 2>;
            reg = <0x41c00000 0x10000>;
            xlnx,count-width = <0x20>;
            xlnx,one-timer-only = <0x0>;
