I'm still an inexpirient and I'm configuring the PIC, through MCC (Microship Code Configurator)

So i set in the MCC a TMR1:

enter image description here

The configuration for the System Module:

enter image description here

I want the clock to tick at 8 us.

That doesn't seem to be happening, so i made the TMR1_CallBack send an alternate 0 and 1 to a port of the pic and watched the signal with an oscilloscope. There i see that it changes every ~28us.

enter image description here note: this image is outdated, with primary oscillator each transition is 28us it doesnt go below that.

The Timers a 16 bit timers.

The code from the tmr1.c where i toggle the pin:

How can i do it?

  • \$\begingroup\$ Please show your code. The Timer normally always increment. \$\endgroup\$ – Mike Jun 3 at 11:50
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Mike hi, have i provived enough information now? \$\endgroup\$ – Nmaster88 Jun 3 at 12:01
  • \$\begingroup\$ Show the code from the ISR where you toggle the pin \$\endgroup\$ – Mike Jun 3 at 12:07
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Mike its just a simple toggle \$\endgroup\$ – Nmaster88 Jun 3 at 13:02
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Mike i've added all the code of tmr1.c \$\endgroup\$ – Nmaster88 Jun 3 at 13:16
