I am new to the Freescale 56F8000E family of DSC's. I am specifically interested in the 56F8323 for my project. I am trying to understand how resources are used in the device. For example:
on the 8323 the Quadrature Decoder appears to share resources with Quad Timer A. If I enable the Quadrature Decoder how many of the timer channels are used? If it is only 1 timer channel then can I use the other 3 timers for anything else? Like a general polling timer that lets me know it time to go read an IO pin?
This type of information doesn't seem that evident in the databooks so I am hoping someone who has actually developed on this device can point me in the right direction.
