Re: Temporary fixes for V4.5 PICmicro release

Hi Martin, Thanks for the updated definition file. Sorry it has taken a while to fully test the solution. Unfortunately the day-job got in the way rather! The update did the trick and the file compiled correctly. Unfortunately, it now fails to program :( Compiler messages for information below File ...

PIC 16F723A Timer1 interrupt Fails to compile

Hi I have a very simple interrupt driven program that fails to compile for a 16F723. There is no custom code and as far as I can tell, I have configured the chip correctly. The compiler messages are:- File name: C:\Users\Robin\Documents\Flowcode\mike\nsr723.c Generated by: Flowcode v4.5.18.74 Date: ...

Re: EB024 / Bluetooth component buffer size

Thanks Sean,

I did wonder whether there was a buffer size issue. I will have a play as you suggest. If I customise the code in one application, am I customising for all applications including the Bluetooth component or is it confined to that application?

Best regards

Robin

Cursor keys to move viewport

One little suggestion that sounds 'simple' to implement (and is almost certainly anything but!) - could we use the navigation keys to move the viewport as follows? Cursor up / down - move viewport one icon up / down Cursor left / right - move viewport one icon left / right PgUp / PgDn - move viewpor...

EB024 / Bluetooth component buffer size

Hi Guys, I am using an EB024 (with a PIC 16F877A on an EB006) to connect to a Active Pilot Bluetooth GPS unit and am trying to retrieve the NMEA sentences from the device and display these on an EB005 display module. The issue that I am having is that when I use the Bluetooth StringRecieve function,...

Timer 2 in PIC 18F2550

I have developed an application using a PIC18F4455 on an EB006 that makes use of the Timer 2 module within the 4455. To convert this into a deliverable unit, I have built the circuit onto an Olimex PIC-P28 module and intended to use the PIC18F2550 (because I did not need the number of output pins on...

Re: EB037 issues

More information: I finally found the PIC16f877 I got with the Elektor course and tested the EB037 using the precompiled test programme. The results for the three types of SD / MMC cards that I have were as follows Sandisk 32MiB MMC "Reset failed > MMC failed" BluBox 1GiB SD "Reset fa...

Re: EB037 issues

Ben: Further information for your deliberations. I got my trusty (very) old analogue oscilloscope out and had a look around the signals being sent to the memory card and have discovered (I had to reduce the delay in the waiting for car loop to 10ms - so I am not expecting anything to work ... this w...

Re: EB037 issues

Thanks Ben,

That's what I found when completing the Elektor microcontrollers course - so it was disabled by default in my setup. I did try enabling it last night but it made no difference - the application worked as before.

One additional question ... should the extended CPU functionality be enabled or disabled?

Re: EB037 issues

Thanks for the reply Ben, I put the new Pic_fat16.c file in the right place and the .c file was some bit bigger than before but the program still did not work - a quick modification to the program to display the error number gives code 255 (no card). As far as I know, there is no custom or supplemen...

EB037 issues

Hi folks, I have a simple application based upon the example "simple slow datalogger" flowchart using a PIC18f4455 on an EB006, with an LCD module (EB005) connected to Port B and an SD/MMC card reader (eb037) connected to Port A. I also have an analogue source derived from the potentiomete...

Unfortunately, this failed as 4 files (mpusbapi.dll, ntport.dll, PPPv3.chm and PPPv3.exe) all appeared to be locked by the operating system despite the fact that Flowcode was not running and...

PIC1826J40 Configuration

Hi Folks, have just procured a batch of 18F26J50's from Microchipdirect and was setting up a project in Flowcode 4.3 and discovered that the configuration screens are blank. I have attached a screen shot of the blank configuration options page. Is there an updated FCD file for the 26J50 family? Than...
