U6RX Pin Not Found in the Pin Table of PIC24FJ256GB406's Datasheet

Below are a few reasons why the U6RX pin is not found on the pin table of the PIC24FJ256GB412 datasheet:

  • U6RX is a multiplexed pin and is not mentioned in the PIC24FJ256GB406 pin table.
  • U6RX is located on pin 27 of the 64-pin TQFP device according to Table 1-4 of the PIC24FJ256GB412 datasheet.
  • U6RX is multiplexed with TCK on pin 27. Hence, the JTAG configuration bit needs to be disabled to use the UART function on the pin.
