Enhanced PWM - Steering Option

Routing a PWM signal to a different I/O pin, or more than one I/O pin, can be accomplished with the PWM Steering option. By setting the associated bit for each PWM I/O pin in the PSTRxCON register, the PWM output can be directed to the specific I/O pin.

PSTRxCON: PWM Steering Control Register

U-0 U-0 U-0 R/W-0 R/W-0 R/W-0 R/W-0 R/W-0
STRxSYNC STRxD STRxC STRxB STRxA
bit 7 bit 0

bit 3

STRxD: Steering Enable bit D

1 = PxD pin has the PWM waveform with polarity control from CCPxM<1:0>
0 = PxD pin is assigned to port pin

bit 2

STRxC: Steering Enable bit C

1 = PxC pin has the PWM waveform with polarity control from CCPxM<1:0>
0 = PxC pin is assigned to port pin

bit 1

STRxB: Steering Enable bit B

1 = PxB pin has the PWM waveform with polarity control from CCPxM<1:0>
0 = PxB pin is assigned to port pin

bit 0

STRxA: Steering Enable bit A

1 = PxA pin has the PWM waveform with polarity control from CCPxM<1:0>
0 = PxA pin is assigned to port pin
