Last Updated:05/24/2017


Where can I find the references to module guide resources for the External Interrupt Controller module on r_icu?


Information on the module guide itself and the associated resources and known issues are available here.


The External IRQ HAL module is an API for External IRQ applications and is implemented on r_icu. The External IRQ HAL module uses the Interrupt Controller Unit (ICU) on the Synergy MCU. A user-callback function can be used and can be triggered each time an IRQ event occurs.

The External IRQ HAL module supports the following features:

  • Supports the External interrupt pins available on the target Synergy MCU
  • Supports multiple function options
