# UTMR Prescaler

The UTMR module has a fully programmable 8-bit prescaler, allowing division of the clock input by 1 to 256. The prescaler register TUxyPS is programmed with the desired prescaler value minus one. For example, for a 10:1 prescaler value, the TUxyPS register is loaded with 0x09. The internal prescaler counter is not directly readable or writable; however, the prescaler counter is cleared upon a Reset of the TUxyTMR counter register. See Figure 3 and Figure 4 for examples of how the counter timing works with respect to a prescaler.
