I'm trying to determine the best way to have 8 independent frequencies on 8 different pins using a V71 device. Not planning on doing anything special DC wise, just going to use a 50% DC on all channels. Just need them to operate at different frequencies.
I'm currently trying to set it up using the ASF 4/Atmel Start framework and I'm having issues determining if it's possible. I was setting up PWM0 to make use of PWMC0_PWMH0-3 to have independent frequencies but it would appear that all PWM0 ports all seem to be clocking out the same data (which I don't really understand the purpose of). Same story with PWM1.
What peripherals should I be using if I wanted to setup eight independent frequencies? Should I be using the TC timers instead (and can I set frequencies independently) or another peripheral?
I can probably figure out how to setup the peripherals in START once I know which peripherals I should be using but want to make sure I'm using the correct peripherals for the job. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
