Timer1 Operation in Timer Mode
Timer mode is selected by clearing the TMR1CS
(T1CON<1>) bit. In this mode, the input clock to the
timer is F
/4. The synchronize control bit, T1SYNC
(T1CON<2>), has no effect since the internal clock is
always in sync.

Timer1 Operation in Synchronized
Counter mode is selected by setting bit TMR1CS. In
this mode, the timer increments on every rising edge of
clock input on pin RC1/T1OSI/CCP2 when bit
T1OSCEN is set, or on pin RC0/T1OSO/T1CKI when
bit T1OSCEN is cleared.

Note 1: When the T1OSCEN bit is cleared, the inverter is turned off. This eliminates power drain.
Timer1 Counter Operation
Timer1 may operate in either a Synchronous, or an
Asynchronous mode, depending on the setting of the
When Timer1 is being incremented via an external
source, increments occur on a rising edge. After Timer1
is enabled in Counter mode, the module must first have
a falling edge before the counter begins to increment.
If T1SYNC is cleared, then the external clock input is
synchronized with internal phase clocks. The synchro-
nization is done after the prescaler stage. The
prescaler stage is an asynchronous ripple counter.
In this configuration, during Sleep mode, Timer1 will not
increment even if the external clock is present since the
synchronization circuit is shut-off. The prescaler,
however, will continue to increment.
