32.3 Clock Source

The clock source is used to drive the dead-band timing circuits. The CWG module allows the following clock sources to be selected:

  • FOSC (system clock)

When the HFINTOSC is selected, the HFINTOSC will be kept running during Sleep. Therefore, the CWG modes requiring dead band can operate in Sleep, provided that the CWG data input is also active during Sleep. The clock sources are selected using the CS bit. The system clock FOSC is disabled in Sleep and thus dead-band control cannot be used.
