Hello my dear Forumers,

I'm having difficulties to understand the Update Disable bit and Update Request bit.

In the peripherial libs it is said, and i quote:

Configures the TIMx Update Request Interrupt source.
  * @param  TIMx: where x can be 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 ,7 ,8, 15, 16 or 17 to select the TIM peripheral.
  * @param  TIM_UpdateSource: specifies the Update source.
  *          This parameter can be one of the following values:
  *            @arg TIM_UpdateSource_Regular: Source of update is the counter
  *                 overflow/underflow or the setting of UG bit, or an update
  *                 generation through the slave mode controller.
  *            @arg TIM_UpdateSource_Global: Source of update is counter overflow/underflow.
  * @retval None
void TIM_UpdateRequestConfig(TIM_TypeDef* TIMx, uint16_t TIM_UpdateSource)

and if i set the UDIS bit it says that the Update Event is NOT generated by the timer itself ( counting overflow) but if i MANUALLY set the UG bit i will generate an interrupt?

Does this mean that whenever i set the UDIS bit


and set the UG-BIT with  :

TIM1->EGR |= 1UL;

 an interrupt will be generated and the void TIM1_UP_TIM16_IRQHandler() will be called?

- Because the IRQ handler isnt executed when  active the UDIS-bit.

So to sum up. URS-setting : Only the timer itself( over/underflow ) can generate an interrupt
                      UDIS - setting : Only setting the UG-Bit can make an interrupt.

Thanks in advance, Martin
