-- Generates conventional PWM that increases and decreases linearly with time
-- Can be filtered to a triangle waveform
-- Uses 2 cog counters in NCO mode directed to the same output pin, long cycle at the beat frequency
No program loops required for basic operation, cog counters only.
-- Counters in a second cog can provide inverted output,
and also a lower frequency square wave synchronized to the beat frequency
-- Operation can be viewed on an oscillosope, probes connected to
pin main output is PWM varying from 50% to 100% high at the selected frequency
pin+1 inverse of pin, varies between 0% and 50%
pin+2 low frequency square wave at that flip flops at the inflection points
-- The second cog is not needed unless you need the inverted signal and/or the beat frequency
In an applicaton, the second set of cog counters can be patched into an existing cog that does not otherwise need its counter modules.
