Target Category: Delfino, F280x, Piccolo

Target Sub-Category: Capture

Description: The HRCAP block performs a high-resolution capture.

Capture Unit: Specifies the unit to be configured.

Input Clock: Lets you choose between the System and PLL clock.

Max Events: Indicates the maximum number of events to be tracked.

Mux Pin: Selects the physical pin on the device a given function is on.

Note: Some F280x and MSP430 devices have different functions for the same physical pin on the chip. This is referred to as multiplexing, or muxing, for short, and is done because pins are expensive. Because multiple functions compete for a given pin, you must choose what function a pin has. For flexibility, in some cases Texas Instruments provides multiple pins for a given function. For instance, the CANTXB function can be on pin 8, 12, or 16. Pin 8 is shared with ePWM5A and ADCSOCA0; pin 12 is shared with TZ1 and SPISIMOB; and pin16 is shared with SPISIMOA and TZ5. If you want ePWM5A on a pin, you cannot use pin 8 for CANTXB, but rather use pin 12 or 16.
