This version of timer A is included in the H8/3614 Series, the H8/3714 Series, the H8/3724
Series, and the H8/3754 Series microcomputers.
Function: Timer A is an 8-bit interval timer that can also be used as a clock time base.
Features: • The timer A clock can be selected from eight internal clock frequencies
(ø/8192, ø/4096, ø/2048, ø/512, ø/256, ø/128, ø/32, and ø/8).
• Four overflow periods (2, 1, 0.5, and 0.125 seconds when used at 32.768 kHz)
available when used as a clock time base.
• Generates a counter overflow interrupt.
