Output Compare Peripheral Library

This library allows you to:

  • Generate a single pulse or a series of pulses in response to selected time base events.
  • Simplify low-level access to the module without the necessity of interacting directly with the module's registers, thereby hiding differences from one microcontroller variant to another.

Example Library Functions

Description Associated Functions
Disables the alternate clock source for Input Capture or Output Compare modules, the primary clock source will be used instead. PLIB_DEVCON_AlternateClockDisable (DEVCON_MODULE_ID index, DEVCON_ALT_CLOCK_TARGET targetAltClock);
Selects the alternate clock source for Input Capture or Output Compare modules. PLIB_DEVCON_AlternateClockEnable (DEVCON_MODULE_ID index, DEVCON_ALT_CLOCK_TARGET targetAltClock);

Important notes on using this library:

  • MPLAB® Harmony PLIB Overview
  • Peripheral libraries are only supported for internal (on board) microcontroller peripherals. External peripherals are always connected to the microcontroller through one or more internal peripheral interfaces and therefore do not require peripheral library support.
