3.8. Event resources and PTM events

A PTM includes a number of event resources. At any time, each event resource is either active or inactive. An active event resource generates a logical TRUE signal, and an inactive resource generates a logical FALSE signal.

A PTM also includes a number of events, each of the is defined by an event register. You can program each event register to define the corresponding event as the result of a logical operation involving one or two event resources. Therefore, at any time, each PTM event is either TRUE or FALSE.

The simplest PTM event definition is one where you program the event to equal a PTM event resource.

The following sections give more information about PTM event resources and events:
