Application of T0/T1/T2 Pins in FX2

Question: What is the typical application for signals T0/T1/T2 (pins 29-31 in the 128-pin package) in FX2?

 

Answer:

Instead of using the internal CLKOUT of the CPU, timer, 0-2 can use the T0-T2 pins as an event counter. An external clock input is supplied to T0-T2 to increment the timer 0-2 count.
