    Clarification needed on CyU3PDeviceGpioOverride

    sandeep.kanodia

      I use the serial port for debug messages without using flow control. So I want to use the CTS and RTS as GPIO.

         

      I read in the API guide for CyU3PDeviceGpioOverride that " This is an override mechanism and can be used to enable any IO line as simple / complex GPIOs. This should be done with caution as a wrong setting can cause damage to hardware."

         

      It also says - "if the configuration does not match the hardware configuration, it can result in unexpected behavior and hardware damage".

         

      Can you please clarify with an example?
