[Solved] PIC168446 Tristate output pins controlled by the value of another pin

johnlon Asks: PIC168446 Tristate output pins controlled by the value of another pin
In many 74xx chips the high impedance state of pins is controlled by a OE pin. I want a similar functionality for my PIC device.

I understand that I could use code to flip the config bits to make the output hi-z or not but the use case is that the outputs need to react within 100ns and I think that’s not possible on a PIC as a single instruction takes > 100ns.

I understand that there is a CLC feature that allows one to do certain functions without using code, but I don’t know much more about it.

Is there any way to achieve what I’m looking for or do I need to put a 74245 in front of my PIC?
