General Purpose Input and Output (GPIO)

The PCH General Purpose Input/Output (GPIO) signals are grouped into multiple groups (such as GP_​A, GP_​B, and so on) and are powered by either the PCH Primary well or Deep Sleep well.

The high level features of GPIO:

  • Configurable 3.3 V or 1.8 V voltage (except for GP_​F and GP_​DSW groups)
  • Configurable as an input or output signal.
  • SCI (GPE) and interrupt capable on all GPIOs
  • NMI and SMI capability capable (on selected GPIOs).
  • PWM, Serial Blink capable (on selected GPIOs).
  • Programmable hardware debouncer (on GP_​DSW03/PMC_​PWRBTN_​N pin)
