We should only be using the compare feature which has a a separate
interrupt (distinct from top and bottom half interrupts). Only timer 2
and 3 of DA850 have the compare interrupts though. So you will have to
use those timers to be able to test compare feature on DA850.

Ah, okay. Timer 2/3 use ASYNC3 as clock input instead of PLL0_AUXCLK.
Did you make adjustment for this too?

Alright, happy to test.
