The SES project can be used as a template for which files to include and wh...

Here are two simple functions to use when you want to use timestamps for time measurement.uint32_t millis(void){ return(app_timer_cnt_get() / 32.768);}and for comperison of current with given timestamp with rollover correctionuint32_t millisPassed(uint32_t localMillis){ uint32_t currentMillis = millis(); if(currentMillis < localMillis) { uint32_t overflow = 0xffffffff - localMillis; localMillis += overflow; currentMillis += overflow; } return(currentMillis - localMillis);}...
