Change pin direction on CY8CKIT-001 - Forums Re: Change pin direction on CY8CKIT-001  Thanks for your replies.


I tried changing the drive mode, but it did not work. But you guys did point me in the right direction...


I found the bidirectional mode enable bit. I enabled bidirectional mode and it worked! The PSoC now releases the pin when I enable the bidirectional mode so that I can read the input value. To enable output mode again, I just disable bidirectional mode.


Even though this works for me, is this the correct way of handling this?

Re: Change pin direction on CY8CKIT-001 I just made a change in my code to dynamically change a port pin from connecting a digital PSoC block output to CPU data register (PRTxDR). This is simply by setting the bypass bit of the associated pin to zero.


PRT4GS &= 0xAF;                            // clear P4.4 and P4.6 bypass bit
PRT4DR |= 0x50;                            // P4.4 and P4.6 = 1

Re: Change pin direction on CY8CKIT-001 You can change the direction of a port pin by setting the PRTxDM registers. Bidirection mode of a pin is probably your choice.
