TimerPeriod

Specify time period between timer events

Description

    Note:   You cannot use the legacy interface on 64–bit MATLAB®. See Session-Based Interface to acquire and generate data.

TimerPeriod specifies the time, in seconds, that must pass before the callback function specified for TimerFcn is called. Time is measured relative to when the hardware device starts running.

Some timer events might not be processed if your system is significantly slowed or if the TimerPeriod value is too small. For example, a common application for timer events is to display data. However, because displaying data is a CPU-intensive task, some of these events might be dropped.
