Does the shoot-through current won't flow unless the port is read?

Latest Updated:08/08/2013

Question:

An intermediate potential is applied a port designated as analog. Is it correct to think that shoot-through current does not flow unless the port is read? If so, if a port is used for mixed digital input and analog input, doesn't shoot-through current flow when this port is read, because it is being used for analog input?

Answer:

No. For a port set to analog input, the input buffer is turned off by the signal set to analog input. Thus, shoot-through current does not flow even if the port is read. A portion of Figure 2-8. Pin Block Diagram for Pin Type 7-3-1 of the RL78/G13 is shown for reference. Here, the AND gate between the pin and selector is turned off by the settings of the PMCmn register which designates a pin as analog input. Thus, shoot-through current does not flow into the input even if the pin voltage is intermediate level.
