I've got a 50MHz SX18AC that's giving me the hump. Attached
are pics of the operation of the following SX code. The Scenix
waits for a handshake (r_ack) from a PIC and signals receipt of
r_ack by triggering a 74HC123 (set to 8us) with s_ack. The PIC
sees this 8us pulse and then carries on to other functions

The top frame is the first 1+ ms after the two micros are told to
start talking. The second frame is a magnification of the problem
area, and the third frame is how the sequence should be (and is
with the extra clrb)

The problem is that s_ack will not clear unless it is told to twice.
I've tried more NOPs, delays of ridiculous length (this is meant
to be a high speed transfer routine), but only an extra clrb will
do it. I've noticed this happen on another output pin that has
just a 10k pulldown connected, and it happens on other SX18s.

The circuit has been checked and checked but there's nothing
I can see that should make a_ack go low for just 1 cycle and
then go high again

Any ideas ?

Oh yes, another thing. The SX appears to take about 160ns (8 IC)
to respond to its r_ack pin going high (the yellow trace, frame 2,
sb r_ack = 2 IC) yet I'd have thought this is much too long before
s_ack goes high
