Flex timer MOD register changes, adds drift versus free running flex timer

In order to synchronize with a PPS signal from a GPS to generate 10000 equal time slice, we need to adjust the MOD of a flex timer at regular intervals. During debugging on our ls1020, we notices that a free running timer and a timer which continually adjusted the MOD register (10000 times per second) would drift by 5us in a second, which in our case would be 5% drift after 1 second. Is there an explanation for this? Can it be confirmed the following process is correct to change the MOD register on the fly? 

1- Verify the FTMEN bit is set.

2- Write the MOD register with the desired value.

3- Set the SYNCONF register with SYNCMODE = 1, SWWRBUF = 1

4- Set the SYNC register with CNTMIN = 1

5- Set the SYNC register with SWSYNC = 1

Thank you in advance for your response.

Here are the value of the test registers:

Look at NXP Application Notes about synchronization using FTM:

https://www.nxp.com/docs/en/application-note/AN4410.pdf

 

and

 

https://www.nxp.com/docs/en/application-note/AN4560.pdf

 

The LS1021a Flextimer is the same as Kinetis Flextimer.

 


Have a great day,
