Detailed Description

"Ticker" Active Object class

QTicker is an efficient active object specialized to process QF system clock tick at a specified tick rate [0..QF_MAX_TICK_RATE]. Placing system clock tick processing in an active object allows you to remove the non-deterministic QTIMEEVT_TICK_X() processing from the interrupt level and move it into the thread-level, where you can prioritize it as low as you wish.
The following example illustrates use of QTicker active objects:
// bsp.h -----------------
extern QActive * const the_Ticker0; // "ticker" pointer for clock rate 0
extern QActive * const the Ticker1; // "ticker" pointer for clock rate 1
// bsp.c -----------------
static QTicker l_ticker0; // "ticker" instance for clock rate 0
QActive * const the_Ticker0 = &l_ticker0.super;
static QTicker l_ticker1; // "ticker" instance for clock rate 1
QActive * const the_Ticker1 = &l_ticker1.super;
// clock tick ISR for tick rate 0
void SysTick_Handler(void) {
. . .
QTICKER_TRIG(the_Ticker0, &qs_tick0_id);
. . .
// clock tick ISR for tick rate 1
void Timer0A_IRQHandler(void) {
. . .
QTICKER_TRIG(the_Ticker1, &qs_tick1_id);
. . .
// main.c ---------------
main () {
. . .
1U, // priority
0, 0, 0, 0, 0); // not used
2U, // priority
0, 0, 0, 0, 0); // not used
. . .

◆ QTicker_trig_()

QTicker::QTicker_trig_ ( QActive *const  me,
void const *const  sender 

Asynchronously trigger the QTicker active object to perform tick processing.

This function only triggers the given "ticker" AO. The actual clock-tick processing happens in the thread context of the "ticker" AO, running at the configured priority level.
