12 unique PWM channels required for STM8S208 - best options?

Question asked by aces_high on Jan 21, 2013
I was speaking with an ST marketing engineer, and he informed me that the STM8S208 has the capability of driving 12 independent PWM channels, but after looking at the datasheet more closely, it seems that it can only drive 9 channels, with 3 complementary channels.

I brought this up to him, and he insisted that 12 unique channels were indeed possible.

Can someone please clarify whether or not he's correct, and if not, what would be the best way to simulate the remaining three channels?

Would bit banging be an option?  The PWM frequencies will be between 500 and 1000 Hz.

Thank you in advance for your responses.
