HCS08 Timer Value (minimum)

Contributor I
I'm currently using an HCS08AW32 microcontroller.
I would like to make a PWM using 1 of the channels of the microcontroller timer.
I can use the timer channel but if I set the timer to a value of less than 50 microseconds, the debugger resets.
What is the minimum value that can be used for the timer channels?
Can I use the timer to as low as 5 microseconds?
Is there a special setting in order for me to be able to use it to as low as 5 us?
Thank you!

Check your COP time out period you have selected in SOPT

Hi cris,
There is no minimum value for the timer.
When using VERY small values you may not get what you expected but it won't cause a reset.
You may end up with a rollover period plus your expected time, that's all.
Need more details to examine any further. Code?
