PPI with multiple SAADCs and multiple TIMERs

Dear Nordic Support,

I am using PPI to link 2 timers (10ms & 5s) with 2 SAADC channel (AIN1 - channel 0 & AIN2 - channel 1). 

The nrf_drv_saadc_init function is only called once so it means there is only one callback for the sampling event. In case I am using 2 channels, how do I know that which channel has completed its sampling event in the callback function? When I printed out the ADC value, all I saw is CH0 and CH1 are read at the same time while I expect CH0 every 10ms and CH1 every 5s.

I am using nRF52840 + nRF5 SDK 15.3 + SD 6.1.1.

Thank you and best regards,

           Duy

  • Hi,

     

    If you want one SAADC channel to run every 5ms, and another to run every 5 seconds, you need to use two timers.

    This is because the timer itself will not count to 5 ms, fire the event for sampling your first channel, then run for another 4.995 seconds before triggering the event to sample your second channel.

    Could you try to run a individual timer per event and see if that works better?

     

    Kind regards,

    Håkon

  • Hello ,

    Thank you for your answer, I am running 2 different timers running in different periods (10ms and 5s). If I run only 1 ADC channel + 1 TIMER with PPI, everything works fine.

    Warm regards,

  • Hello ,

    Please have a look at my code in main.c and my configuration is sdk_config.h file. Sorry for make it not clear but I still don't get it work. I enabled TIMER1 and TIMER2.

    The TRANSDUCER_TIMER is TIMER1 and BATTERY_TIMER is TIMER2. I think I have to clear a register to get this to work.

    const nrf_drv_timer_t TRANSDUCER_TIMER = NRF_DRV_TIMER_INSTANCE(1);                 /**< ADC timer. */
    const nrf_drv_timer_t BATTERY_TIMER = NRF_DRV_TIMER_INSTANCE(2);                    /**< Battery timer. */

    Thank you and best regards,

  • Hi,

     

    I am very sorry, I have misinformed you previously.

    When you are enabling more than one channel, the SAADC enters scan mode, where it samples all enabled channels when you trigger the start task.

    Due to this behavior in hardware, you are actually sampling both inputs at 5 ms interval.

     

    Kind regards,

    Håkon

  • Hello ,

    One more question, which function or variable allows me to know that the sample belongs to SAADC channel 0, 1, 2...?

    Thank you and best regards,
