    Hi all,

    I have designed a program on a pic that aswel as other things outputs a PWM signal from a voltage input. The program works prity much exactly how i want it to with 50% duty cycle being prity much exactly 50% duty cycle.

    My problem is at 0% and 100%. Please see pictures.

    The PWM runs at arrouns 319Hz, the +/- spikes are arround 1us long. will this be a problem in the over all working of the circuit?? can i do ne thing to make sure that at 0% there is 0V and at 100% there is full V??

    Cheers for any help.

    Yep, that's pretty much what you should expect.

    The only alternative is to turn off the PWM signal and drive the output high or low for 100% and 0%. Aesthetically it may be better, but functionally it is likely to make no difference.

    I thought as much, cheers Steve
