All Implemented Interfaces:
AutoCloseable

public class Notifier
extends Object
implements AutoCloseable
  • Constructor Details

    • Notifier

      public Notifier​(Runnable run)
      Create a Notifier for timer event notification.
      Parameters:
      run - The handler that is called at the notification time which is set using StartSingle or StartPeriodic.
  • Method Details

    • finalize

      protected void finalize()
      Overrides:
      finalize in class Object
    • close

      public void close()
      Specified by:
      close in interface AutoCloseable
    • setName

      public void setName​(String name)
      Sets the name of the notifier. Used for debugging purposes only.
      Parameters:
      name - Name
    • setHandler

      public void setHandler​(Runnable handler)
      Change the handler function.
      Parameters:
      handler - Handler
    • startSingle

      public void startSingle​(double delay)
      Register for single event notification. A timer event is queued for a single event after the specified delay.
      Parameters:
      delay - Seconds to wait before the handler is called.
    • startPeriodic

      public void startPeriodic​(double period)
      Register for periodic event notification. A timer event is queued for periodic event notification. Each time the interrupt occurs, the event will be immediately requeued for the same time interval.
      Parameters:
      period - Period in seconds to call the handler starting one period after the call to this method.
    • stop

      public void stop()
      Stop timer events from occurring. Stop any repeating timer events from occurring. This will also remove any single notification events from the queue. If a timer-based call to the registered handler is in progress, this function will block until the handler call is complete.
    • setHALThreadPriority

      public static boolean setHALThreadPriority​(boolean realTime, int priority)
      Sets the HAL notifier thread priority.

      The HAL notifier thread is responsible for managing the FPGA's notifier interrupt and waking up user's Notifiers when it's their time to run. Giving the HAL notifier thread real-time priority helps ensure the user's real-time Notifiers, if any, are notified to run in a timely manner.

      Parameters:
      realTime - Set to true to set a real-time priority, false for standard priority.
      priority - Priority to set the thread to. For real-time, this is 1-99 with 99 being highest. For non-real-time, this is forced to 0. See "man 7 sched" for more details.
      Returns:
      True on success.
