LPC552x/S2x: The number of DMA transfers per request or trigger

I would like to test burst transfer based on the DMA channel chain transfer example in the SDK, but the example seems to behave like burst transfer with single transfer (default).

I understand the number of transfers per request or trigger as follows:

If software trigger is used (SWTRIG=1), transfers are performed until descriptors are exhausted (RELOAD=0) or trigger is cleared (CLRTRIG=1).

If DMA request is used (PERIPHREQEN=1), a transfer is performed per request.

If hardware trigger is used with edge trigger (HWTRIGEN=1, TRIGTYPE=0), a transfer is performed per trigger with single transfer (TRIGBURST=0) or the number of transfers defined by BURSTPOWER is performed per trigger with burst transfer (TRIGBURST=1).

Is my understanding correct?

The DMA channel chain transfer example in the SDK seems that transfers continue until the descriptor is exhausted with the single transfer.

Best regards,

Daisuke

Hi,

I modified the DMA channel chain transfer example for HW trigger and tested it, it seems that transfers by per trigger with single transfer (TRIGBURST=0) are performed until descriptors are exhausted (RELOAD=0) or trigger is cleared (CLRTRIG=1).

Why do the single transfer show this behavior in the example?

The modified example source code is attached.

HW trigger connection in the modified example:
PINT (P1_9 to low by S3 on LPC55S28-EVK) -> DMA0CH0 -> DMA0CH1 -> DMA0CH2

On the other hand, it worked as expected with burst transfer (TRIGBURST=1).

Best regards,

Daisuke

Hello, 

I saw you have 3 cases with some differences in the DMA, for quality of service I will be following your case in one of these.

Best regards,
Pavel
