If however you'd pick I did not get you here, if period is 145.34, we still get the corresponding PRESCALE = 18 by below formula: tmp = (u64)chn->clk_rate * period_ns; do_div(tmp, NSEC_PER_SEC); prescale = DIV_ROUND_CLOSEST_ULL(tmp, SPRD_PWM_MOD_MAX) - 1; > PRESCALE = 18 and MOD = 254 you get a period of 144.78 µs and so the > error is only 0.56 µs which is a factor of 13 better. > > Hmm. > > > + * The value for PRESCALE is selected such that the resulting period > > + * gets the maximal length not bigger than the requested one with the > > + * given settings (MOD = SPRD_PWM_MOD_MAX and input clock). > > + */ > > + duty = duty_ns * SPRD_PWM_MOD_MAX / period_ns; > > I wonder if you loose some precision here as you use period_ns but might > actually implement a shorter period. > > Quick example, again consider clk_rate = 100 / 3 MHz, > period_ns = 145340, duty_ns = 72670.

Incorrect, with DUTY = 134 (PRESCALE = 18 -> period = 145.35 µs), duty_ns = 76380ns > (But then again it is not obvious which of the two is the "better" > approximation because Thierry doesn't seem to see the necessity to > discuss or define a policy here.) Like I said, this is the simple calculation formula which can meet our requirement (we limit our DUTY value can only be 0 - 254). duty = duty_ns * SPRD_PWM_MOD_MAX / period_ns; > > (And to pick up the thoughts about not using SPRD_PWM_MOD_MAX > unconditionally, you could also use > > PRESCALE = 18 > MOD = 254 > DUTY = 127 > > yielding period_ns = 144780 and duty_ns = 72390.
