The GTM IP module forms a generic timer platform for complex applications in the automotive industry like power train, power steering, chassis and transmission control. To serve these different application domains, the GTM provides a wide range of timer functions like:
The GTM IP is designed to offer flexible solutions for different application domains and for different application classes within one specific application domain. The IP is designed to run with minimal CPU interaction and to unload the CPU from handling interrupt service requests as much as possible.
Generic interfaces and the hierarchical system architecture make the GTM an ideal solution as IP core for various microcontroller architectures.
