'Siren sound -Reply -Reply'
|Oops! I searched for "PWM" in the 'C84 Data Sheet, on CD-ROM, to see if it
had a PWM before I sent my reply. I didn't want to look foolish ya know. I
found a reference and off went my note. Oh well. If I had actually read what
it said I would have realized it said that the 'C84 doesn't have a PWM. I am
using a 'C73 with all those gizmo's. Sorry
How about a Brute force software PWM. Are any of your timing loops less than
the period of the highest frequency you want to use in your siren?

Many thanks for the quick response. However, unless I'm mistaken, the 'C84
is not the one with the internal PWM. Control lines from the PIC in this
design are now fully allocated, and all I have to left for the alarm
function is a simple enable.
I've thought about using a CMOS 555 to generate the waveform, but the siren
IC's do the whole banana in the same real estate as one 555 ... also, no
external components required. Kind of hard to beat ....
Let's see what the list can turn up.
