Hi:

Is anyone know the model number of Quark on edison? Is it Quark D1000, Quark x1000 or else?

And can we access the general purpose timer of Quark? Does the timer of Quark have a pinout?

Thanks a lot

Hi,

The MCU on the Edison is a Minute IA CPU.

All the information available regarding the features of the MCU on the Edison is in here: https://software.intel.com/en-us/node/557537 Creating applications with the MCU SDK for the Intel® Edison board: Overview

There isn't a direct access to the timer, but you can use the timing functions available on the SDK. The pinout of the Edison does not include a pin for the timer on the MCU. http://www.intel.com/support/edison/sb/CS-035259.htm Pin out for Boards and Kits

Regards.

Thank you very much.

Edison has 4 PWM pin. Could you tell me where these pwm come from in hardware? And could you provide the diagram of the hardware?

Can we generate custom PWM by programming timer directly in Edison?

Hi Young_23

I saw you opened a thread with the same question, lets continue on that thread.

I suggest you to also look in to the folder /sys/class/pwm

Charlie
