after the HSMCI-Issue (on my ATSAM4S4) has been luckely solved, i´d like to add an Quadrature Encoder via the QDEC-Functionality, but i have some issues to understand the
Connection between Timers and the inputs. I´ve used Quadrate Encoders before by Polling and also using Interrupts in combination with a decoding Table,
but this here is of course quite different.
First a simple Question: Since the Datasheet refers to Qudrature Encoders connected to TIOA0-2, but my Encoder is connected to TIOA3 and TIOB3, i would assume
that the Timer involved is Timer Instance 1 and herein Timer3 to get the position of the Encoder. Is this correct? Is there any need to involve another Timer instance
& Timer in order to get the pure Position function to work (eg Timer Instance 1/Timer3 function would need also Timer 4 for any sort of reference for decoding)?
Many thanks & best regards :-)
