I am using a 56F8257 and developing using Codewarrior DSC56800E 8.3 with Processor Expert. I have the Professional license and have successfully developed a number of products with this environment so I am not new to Codewarriors idiosyncrasies.
I have used the Qudrature Decoder bean with the 56F8323 in the past but I needed an upgrade in Memory for a 2nd Gen product so I moved to the 56F8257 as it seemed pretty close in features.
Reading the Reference Manual (MC56F825XRM) page 171 shows 126.96.36.199 Quadrature-Count Mode with Index Input. This is exactly what I want to implement. It states:
// (See Processor Expert PulseAccumulator bean.)
// This example uses TMRA0and TMRA1 for counting states of a quadrature position encoder.
I am looking at the PulseAccumulator Bean and I don't see how you can select more than 1 counter. Anyone know how? Examples?
