Action

Configures the direct memory access (DMA) module of the XMEGA.

 

 

Syntax

CONFIG DMA=enabled|disabled, DOUBLEBUF=db, CPM=cpm

 

 

Remarks

 

DMA

By default the DMA is disabled. Use ENABLED to enable the module.

db

DOUBLE BUFFER

This options will set the double buffer mode. By default is is DISABLED.

To allow for continuous transfer, two channels can be interlinked so that the second takes over the transfer when the first is finished and vice versa. This is called double buffering. When a transmission is completed for the first channel, the second channel is enabled. When a request is detected on the second channel, the transfer starts and when this is completed the first channel is enabled again

 

Modes :

- DISABLED : No double buffer enabled

- CH01 : Double buffer enabled on channel0/1

- CH23 : Double buffer enabled on channel2/3

- CH01CH23 : Double buffer enabled on channel0/1 and channel2/3

cpm

Channel Priority Mode

If several channels request data transfer at the same time a priority scheme is available to determine which channel is allowed to transfer data. Application software can decide whether one or more channels should have a fixed priority or if a round robin scheme should be used. A round robin scheme means that the channel that last transferred data will have the lowest priority

 

Modes :

RR : Round Robin

CH0RR123 :  Channel0 > Round Robin (Channel 1, 2 and 3)

CH01RR23 : Channel0 > Channel1 > Round Robin (Channel 2 and 3)

CH0123 : Channel0 > Channel1 > Channel2 > Channel3

 

 

You also need to set the individual DMA channels using CONFIG DMACHx.
