comedi_digital_trigger_enable_edges — set digital trigger edge detection

Synopsis

#include <comedilib.h>

int comedi_digital_trigger_enable_edges(comedi_t * device, unsigned int subdevice, unsigned int trigger_id, unsigned int base_input, unsigned int rising_edge_inputs, unsigned int falling_edge_inputs);

Status

alpha

Description

This function enables edge detection for a digital trigger on a subdevice. If the subdevice supports several digital triggers, the trigger_id selects one. The rising_edge_inputs and falling_edge_inputs parameters are bit fields that enable (1) or disable (0) rising and falling edge detection on a set of (up to) 32 inputs. The least-significant bit corresponds to the input specified by the base_input parameter, with subsequent bits corresponding to subsequent inputs.

Successive calls to this function have an cumulative effect, which allows digital triggers to be set up for more than 32 inputs. There may also be a cumulative effect with calls to comedi_digital_trigger_enable_levels if the digital trigger supports a combination of edge and level triggering. Due to the cumulative effect, it may be necessary to call comedi_digital_trigger_disable to clear the old settings before reconfiguring the digital trigger inputs.

A digital trigger may support edge detection, level detection, both at different times, or both at the same time. If it supports both but not at the same time, configuring edge triggers will disable any previous level triggers, or vice versa.

This function is only useable on subdevices that provide support for the INSN_CONFIG_DIGITAL_TRIG configuration instruction, and only if the digital trigger supports edge detection.

Return Value

0 on success, -1 on error.
