public interface PwmDriver
implements Pwm

PWM user driver. A PwmDriver must implement all Pwm functions, but additionally this class provides an open() function that will be called whenever a process obtains ownership of the PWM, to match the existing close() function.


Public methods

abstract void close()

Closes the PWM.

default String getName()

Returns null.

abstract void open()

Opens the PWM.

Public methods


void close ()

Closes the PWM. This will be called when the PWM is closed by its owner. Any resources that need to be cleaned up should be done so here. This method may throw IOException to indicate I/O failure, but will still be considered closed and may attempt to be re-opened in the future.

IOException on I/O failure; the driver will still be considered closed.


String getName ()

Returns null. I/O user drivers can be registered under any name so this returns null by default. Child classes may override this if other behavior is desired.



void open ()

Opens the PWM. This will be called when ownership of a PWM is obtained. The driver should do any initialization needed to configure the PWM for use here.

IOException on I/O failure; the driver will remain closed.
