Powerful and
Flexible Module

The Generic Timer Module (GTM) is a flexible module to analyse complex input signals or produce sophisticated output signals. The GTM IP is included in many automotive microcontrollers from leading semiconductor companies like Infineon, NXP, Renesas and STMicroelectronics. With its routing capability and multi-channel sequencer, a kind of co-processor, the GTM is not only able to reduce the CPU and interrupt load but also add software-emulated communication functionalities (SENT, LIN, CAN interfaces) to a huge number of I/O pins.

Easier Application Handling

The GTM is a powerful but complex module which can be used for signal generation and analysis but also to realize software-emulated interfaces (e.g. SENT, LIN, and CAN). The usage of GTM can reduce the workload of the microcontroller’s CPU and free resources for other tasks. The huge amount of possible configurations increases the effort to handle complex applications with the GTM. Also the potential of the GTM cannot be completely seen, because it is somehow hidden behind the required configuration. 

Reduced Efforts by Software Emulation

The GTM IP library abstracts the configuration and usage of the GTM which reduces the effort to execute complex tasks using the GTM and at the same time reduce the workload of the microcontroller’s CPU. The provided APIs for e.g. communication interfaces are standard conform (e.g. AUTOSAR) that, from the application point of view, software emulated communication interfaces using the GTM can be used in the same way as hardware communication interfaces.
