Q: Question for Slide 14: What are typical maximum intervals for timers? µs, ms, s, min?
A: You determine the intervals by the clock source you select. Most MCUs use the system clock and divide it by a value you set, likely a power of 2; that is, divide by 2, 4, 8, 16, etc. You can use an internal timer to click every 1 msec, for example, and then every time the timer ticks over, increment a counter. Then after 10,000 counts you have a 10-second period. The timers and counters are very flexible.
