Honestly I was not aware of this !

Any theoritical explnation to this ?

I would rather stay away from locked antiphase, one of
the reaons being I get double the PWM resolution in
sign magnitude for the same hardware.

I also don't think using a PIC with 4 PWM channels (!)
would be feasable... however, if I hear of hobby
robots using such configuration I will not doubt take
a plunge.

But I think there are reason why people like using
sign magnitude...

Do you Yahoo!?
