Abstract

There is a need in modem electronics to have left-aligned or center-aligned pulse width modula- tion PWM signals. But, in some situations it is desirable to be able to easily change from one to another. It is wasteful of integrated circuit (IC) real estate to provide separate PWM generators, as has been the case in the past. Therefore there is an ongoing need to have a PWM signal generator capable of producing either or both left-aligned or center-aligned PWM signals. The present invention provides this combination of features.
