    Hi to all

    It is about 68hc908JL3CP

    Using Code Warrior special edition it looks that one of the so called
    beans(FreeCntr16) dedicated to the TIM timer it is able to set the
    resolution at 1ms,when the Xtal frequency is 4.096 MHz

    I can't understand how it is possible,if the internal bus clock is
    FXtal/4,and the max prescaler value is 64

    so the TIM should increase its value at a rate of 4096/(64*4)=16KHz,right?

    Compiling it some code is generated and not only registers settings,but it
    seems tho me fighting with the definition of free counter,something that
    increases independently from the code

    Can someone explain me how it works, please?

    Thank you .
