The internal clock (Q1–Q4) of PIC Micro controller runs at a quarter of the oscillator frequency (FOSC/4).
My question is if i divide the frequency with 4 Then the timer period of each clock pulse will increase 4 times.
However this picture is confusing. it shows after the internal circuitry divides the clock into four even quadrature clocks. the timer period of each clock (i.e Q1, Q2, Q3, and Q4) less than the main primary oscillator(that is connected to the OSC1 and OSC2 pins). But i think time period of each clock pulse must be 4 times time period of main primary oscillator.
- Can anybody explain the above??
2.What is oscillator cycle?? the frequency of oscillator cycle??
- What is machine cycle ??
