I've got the i.MX 8m Mini EVK, and for my application, I need to be able to schedule periodic tasks, with triggers on the order of 10s of microseconds. Now I realize that since the timing is short, and I also need it to be very consistent, I'm assuming that I'll have to be using the Cortex M4 core to handle these events. I've already played around with some of the MCUXpresso SDK examples, and I'm able to get a bunch of those examples running. There's a FreeRTOS SW Timer example which use the xTimerCreate function call, but after trying a few things out, and reading up on it, it seems that I will only be able to get tasks occurring every 1ms or so if I were to tune some parameters.
I guess my other options look like:
If anyone else has done something similar, let me know.
