Low Side Outputs on MC42
Is there a way to get (2) Low Side Outputs on an MC42, without needing to use the High Side pair?
I need to send 2 AL outputs to another controller to control certain functions. So I don't have anything to connect the High Side to and not get a critical error.
In the Instructions it looks like you should be able to as Dout_E thur O are all low side, but you cant not select that in IQAN. ( I know they share the CAM output) But it would be really nice to just have the LS for low current logic control like I am trying to do and not need to setup to the MC43 to just get that.
On a different note, it would be nice if you guys could add the type of input/output they are.
High Side or Low Side so it easy to select the one you need.

The reason that the power low-sides are only possible to control as part of a COUT or a DOUT HS+LS is the internal diode. See section "Low-side switch type 1 outputs" in the IQAN-MC4x user manual:
Since the purpose in your application seems to be an interface to another controller, one option could be to use an IQAN-MC43 with its Low side switch type 2 outputs.
For the request about marking the DIN pull-up /pull-down in the MC4x block diagrams, this is being planned for 5.01
