GPIO & RTC GPIO

[中文]

Overview

The ESP32-C3 chip features 22 physical GPIO pins (GPIO0 ~ GPIO21). Each pin can be used as a general-purpose I/O, or be connected to an internal peripheral signal. Through GPIO matrix and IO MUX, peripheral input signals can be from any IO pins, and peripheral output signals can be routed to any IO pins. Together these modules provide highly configurable I/O. For more details, see ESP32-C3 Technical Reference Manual > IO MUX and GPIO Matrix (GPIO, IO_MUX) [PDF].

The table below provides more information on pin usage, and please note the comments in the table for GPIOs with restrictions.

Note

  • Strapping pin: GPIO2, GPIO8 and GPIO9 are strapping pins. For more infomation, please refer to ESP32-C3 datasheet.

  • SPI0/1: GPIO12-17 are usually used for SPI flash and PSRAM and are not recommended for other uses.

  • USB-JTAG: GPIO 18 and 19 are used by USB-JTAG by default. In order to use them as GPIOs, USB-JTAG will be disabled by the drivers.

  • RTC: GPIO0-5 can be used when in Deep-sleep mode.

esp_err_t gpio_isr_register(void (*fn)(void*), void *arg, int intr_alloc_flags, gpio_isr_handle_t *handle)

Register GPIO interrupt handler, the handler is an ISR. The handler will be attached to the same CPU core that this function is running on.

This ISR function is called whenever any GPIO interrupt occurs. See the alternative gpio_install_isr_service() and gpio_isr_handler_add() API in order to have the driver support per-GPIO ISRs.

To disable or remove the ISR, pass the returned handle to the interrupt allocation functions.

Parameters
  • fn – Interrupt handler function.

  • arg – Parameter for handler function

  • intr_alloc_flags – Flags used to allocate the interrupt. One or multiple (ORred) ESP_INTR_FLAG_* values. See esp_intr_alloc.h for more info.

  • handle – Pointer to return handle. If non-NULL, a handle for the interrupt will be returned here.

Returns

  • ESP_OK Success ;

  • ESP_ERR_INVALID_ARG GPIO error

  • ESP_ERR_NOT_FOUND No free interrupt found with the specified flags

esp_err_t gpio_pullup_en(gpio_num_t gpio_num)

  • ESP_ERR_INVALID_ARG Parameter error

esp_err_t gpio_pulldown_en(gpio_num_t gpio_num)

Enable pull-down on GPIO.

Parameters

gpio_num – GPIO number

Returns

  • ESP_OK Success

  • ESP_ERR_INVALID_ARG Parameter error

esp_err_t gpio_install_isr_service(int intr_alloc_flags)

Install the driver’s GPIO ISR handler service, which allows per-pin GPIO interrupt handlers.

This function is incompatible with gpio_isr_register() - if that function is used, a single global ISR is registered for all GPIO interrupts. If this function is used, the ISR service provides a global GPIO ISR and individual pin handlers are registered via the gpio_isr_handler_add() function.

Parameters

intr_alloc_flags – Flags used to allocate the interrupt. One or multiple (ORred) ESP_INTR_FLAG_* values. See esp_intr_alloc.h for more info.

Returns

  • ESP_OK Success

  • ESP_ERR_NO_MEM No memory to install this service

  • ESP_ERR_INVALID_STATE ISR service already installed.

  • ESP_ERR_NOT_FOUND No free interrupt found with the specified flags

  • ESP_ERR_INVALID_ARG GPIO error

void gpio_uninstall_isr_service(void)

Uninstall the driver’s GPIO ISR service, freeing related resources.

esp_err_t gpio_isr_handler_add(gpio_num_t gpio_num, gpio_isr_t isr_handler, void *args)

Add ISR handler for the corresponding GPIO pin.

Call this function after using gpio_install_isr_service() to install the driver’s GPIO ISR handler service.

The pin ISR handlers no longer need to be declared with IRAM_ATTR, unless you pass the ESP_INTR_FLAG_IRAM flag when allocating the ISR in gpio_install_isr_service().

This ISR handler will be called from an ISR. So there is a stack size limit (configurable as “ISR stack size” in menuconfig). This limit is smaller compared to a global GPIO interrupt handler due to the additional level of indirection.

Parameters
  • gpio_num – GPIO number

  • isr_handler – ISR handler function for the corresponding GPIO number.

  • args – parameter for ISR handler.

Returns

  • ESP_OK Success

  • ESP_ERR_INVALID_STATE Wrong state, the ISR service has not been initialized.

  • ESP_ERR_INVALID_ARG Parameter error

esp_err_t gpio_isr_handler_remove(gpio_num_t gpio_num)

Remove ISR handler for the corresponding GPIO pin.

Parameters

gpio_num – GPIO number

Returns

  • ESP_OK Success

  • ESP_ERR_INVALID_STATE Wrong state, the ISR service has not been initialized.

  • ESP_ERR_INVALID_ARG Parameter error

esp_err_t gpio_set_drive_capability(gpio_num_t gpio_num, gpio_drive_cap_t strength)

Set GPIO pad drive capability.

Parameters
  • gpio_num – GPIO number, only support output GPIOs

  • strength – Drive capability of the pad

Returns

  • ESP_OK Success

  • ESP_ERR_INVALID_ARG Parameter error

esp_err_t gpio_get_drive_capability(gpio_num_t gpio_num, gpio_drive_cap_t *strength)

Get GPIO pad drive capability.

Parameters
  • gpio_num – GPIO number, only support output GPIOs

  • strength – Pointer to accept drive capability of the pad

Returns

  • ESP_OK Success

  • ESP_ERR_INVALID_ARG Parameter error

esp_err_t gpio_hold_en(gpio_num_t gpio_num)

Enable gpio pad hold function.

The gpio pad hold function works in both input and output modes, but must be output-capable gpios. If pad hold enabled: in output mode: the output level of the pad will be force locked and can not be changed. in input mode: the input value read will not change, regardless the changes of input signal.

The state of digital gpio cannot be held during Deep-sleep, and it will resume the hold function when the chip wakes up from Deep-sleep. If the digital gpio also needs to be held during Deep-sleep, gpio_deep_sleep_hold_en should also be called.

Power down or call gpio_hold_dis will disable this function.

Parameters

gpio_num – GPIO number, only support output-capable GPIOs

Returns

  • ESP_OK Success

  • ESP_ERR_NOT_SUPPORTED Not support pad hold function

esp_err_t gpio_hold_dis(gpio_num_t gpio_num)

Disable gpio pad hold function.

When the chip is woken up from Deep-sleep, the gpio will be set to the default mode, so, the gpio will output the default level if this function is called. If you don’t want the level changes, the gpio should be configured to a known state before this function is called. e.g. If you hold gpio18 high during Deep-sleep, after the chip is woken up and gpio_hold_dis is called, gpio18 will output low level(because gpio18 is input mode by default). If you don’t want this behavior, you should configure gpio18 as output mode and set it to hight level before calling gpio_hold_dis.

Parameters

gpio_num – GPIO number, only support output-capable GPIOs

Returns

  • ESP_OK Success

  • ESP_ERR_NOT_SUPPORTED Not support pad hold function

void gpio_deep_sleep_hold_en(void)

Enable all digital gpio pad hold function during Deep-sleep.

When the chip is in Deep-sleep mode, all digital gpio will hold the state before sleep, and when the chip is woken up, the status of digital gpio will not be held. Note that the pad hold feature only works when the chip is in Deep-sleep mode, when not in sleep mode, the digital gpio state can be changed even you have called this function.

Power down or call gpio_hold_dis will disable this function, otherwise, the digital gpio hold feature works as long as the chip enter Deep-sleep.

void gpio_deep_sleep_hold_dis(void)

Disable all digital gpio pad hold function during Deep-sleep.
