Platform-specific modules

For some platforms, a number of hardware-dependent or specific modules are implemented (or in the works).

The following table lists these modules and some boards that can use them.

Platform-specific status notes:

The eLua peripheral modules attempt to provide similar functionality on all platforms for which they are implemented. However, due to significant hardware differences, some module function varies between platforms. Some known inconsistencies are listed below:

ADC
  • STM32: Only timer 2 is supported for clocked conversions.
  • STR9: Clocked conversions are not supported by hardware.
  • LPC17xx: Only timer 1 is supported for clocked conversions.
  • LPC24xx: Only timer 1 is supported for clocked conversions.
