Detailed Description

Wrapper for the General Purpose DMA controller.

The GPDMA class allows multiple users of DMA to claim one or more of the eight available DMA channels and to register handlers for the interrupts. This centralized control is needed as there are eight channels but only one DMA IRQ.

By having to request a channel to use it is possible to avoid having hardcoded DMA channel number in the code

An example of use:

 void handler() {
   _eventSuccess = LPC_GPDMA->IntTCStat & (1<<ch);
   LPC_GPDMA->IntTCClear = (1<<ch);

 void foo() {
    GPDMA* dma = &GPDMA::instance();

    DMAChannels ch = dma->acquireChannel(handler)
    if (ch == DMACh_Unavailable) {
      // handle error

    // prepare the channel data (see e.g. gpdma_transfer_from_mci() in MCIFileSystem)

    // start the transfer
    dma->transfer(&cfg, ctrl_word, 0, GPDMA_CONN_SDC, GPDMA_CONN_MEMORY);

    // wait for transfer to complete (e.g. by handler() setting a flag)

    // return the channel now that it is no longer needed

Member Function Documentation

GPDMA::DMAChannels acquireChannel ( void(*)(void)  irqfunc,
DMAChannels  suggested = DMACh3 

Get a free GPDMA channel for one DMA connection.

The function will start to look for the suggested channel. If it is in use then the next, higher, channel number will be tested. The default is set to use DMACh3 which has medium priority.

To acquire a channel with the highest available priority call this function with DMACh0 as parameter.

DMACh0 to DMACh7 on success DMACh_Unavailable if there are no channels available

void deinit (  )

Shuts down the GPDMA.

Call will be ignored if there are any acquired channels

LPC_GPDMACH_TypeDef * getDirectRegisters ( DMAChannels  ch )

Returns the raw registers for the GPDMA channel for direct manipulation.
