The interrupt controller runs on PERIPHCLK. The clock period is configured, during integration, as an integer division of the Cortex®‑R8 processor clock (CLK) period.
This division, N, must be greater than or equal to two. As a consequence, the minimum pulse width of signals driving external interrupt lines is N CLK cycles.
The timers and watchdogs use the same clock as the interrupt controller.
