PA_0(pwm2/1)cant be used as PWM output?


Is there something I need to know to use PA_0 as PWM output? It seems not to work, where as PA_1 and other pins works just fine.

if I set PA_0 as PWM out, the output is actually in PA_15 pin, where as PA_0 just stays floating, sadly I had to broke my fan before I did realise this..(yeah propably a bad fan to begin with since I don't think it should burn its own ic because of the floating pin instead of PWM signal)

Question relating to:

Affordable and flexible platform to ease prototyping using a STM32L476RGT6 microcontroller.

How about the basic GPIO operation on PA_0, is it also output in PA_15? It will be more helpful if you can upload your source code.

Terence, i did not have time to test basic IO operations last night, will do later today. What comes to source code it's only initiating 4x PwmOut and setting period/duty, but this same behaviour is still around when I only initiate PA_0 as PwmOut and comment out rest of the code.

Let's wait for result of basic IO operation to see if it is sw/hw conflict issue or PWM issue.

I did some testing it seems that my earlier observation of PA_0 routed to PA_15 when using PWM was just bogus, its not happening. But the the proplem, it seems that PA_0 cannot be pulled high from software, when using as IO, pulling it down seems to work as i get static 0.00v reading, but when trying to pull it high its only 0.05v what i can measure from it, so something is trying to held it low?

#include "mbed.h"

DigitalOut mOut(PA_0);

int main() {
    while (true) {}

It's close to clear now, two possible reason for this case: hardware pulling, try to check circuit diagram if there is some force pulling circuit; function confliction, need to check if any other feature are using this port now, such as serial..
