    Pin Drive Modes and the <pin_name>_Write() API

    JuRu_3481966

      When a pin is set to Open-Drain, Drives Low, does this mean that when you use PIN_Write(1), the pin goes low, and high when you use PIN_Write(0)? The concept of the drive mode is very confusing to me and I cannot seem to get this information from the datasheet for the pins.

      I am also trying to use the TM1637 with PSoC 4 (bit banging) and have had no success. If you could clarify this for me, it would help a lot.

       

       

      Thanks,

      Julian

          When you look at the diagrams for the drive mode at page 10 of pin's datasheet you will see that the output is driven only to one direction.

          The "Open Drain drives low" will be connected to GND when the pin is written a 0 to. A pullup resistor will be needed to maintain the high state of the pin. This configuration allows for more than one devices actively driving the pin low as for instance I2C uses for clock stretching.

          "Open Drain drives high" will work accordingly when a 1 is written to the pin.
