This application note shows how the High End Timer Transfer Unit (HTU), a local DMA on the TMS570 devices, which is dedicated to the programmable timer, can be used to offload tasks from the main CPU by doing transfers between the main memory and the NHET. It shows how to set up the HTU, covers specific details which need to be taken into account when using the HTU, and lists the benefits of using HTU for data transfers instead of the CPU.
