  1. Hi.

    Anyone who has experience with the mentioned IC ? ...


    I've made the circuit always transmit the same code, by shorting DRV0N
    to SEN0N.

    DRV6N has no connection, so that it operates in mode1.

    DRV0N-DRV5N is connected to ADRM through a dip-switch,
    so that it is possible to change the address.

    There is at no time connected more than one driver-channel (DRVXN) to


    When the circuit is switched on, it some times enters a, to me,
    unknown state, where it transmits 12 bit instead of the wanted 11 ...
    The problem only occurs from power up, and is only solved by cutting
    the supply and discharging the circuit.

    I have tried both with and without 10k pull-up resistors on the
    driverchannels, but it makes no difference.


    Here are the measured pulse sequences, in the sequence:
    correct A, wierd A, correct B, wierd B, correct C ... osv. osv.
    (reference and toggle is not listed). It is listed which driverchannel
    is connected to ADRM.

    drv3 011 000000
    drv3 101 1000000

    drv4 100 000000
    drv4 011 1000000

    drv5 101 000000

    I hope that anyone has a solution or a good idea to what is wrong. :)
