Asynchronous Steering Mode

In Asynchronous mode (MODE = ‘b000), steering takes effect at the end of the instruction cycle that writes to STRx. In Asynchronous Steering mode, the output signal may be an incomplete waveform (see the figure below). This operation may be useful when the user firmware needs to immediately remove a signal from the output pin.
