Re: OLED Memory problem

Hi Ben, I changed the files and I just get 1 error now, it seems that the compiler doesen't support the extended functions on the chip, as far as fancy work on the oled goes I was just looking for a smaller display to display text rather than the great big i2c 20x4 lcd display, I am just experimenti...

Re: OLED Memory problem

Hi Ben,

I have a few pic18f24J11 devices so I swapped to these, when I try and write to Hex I get this error:

Re: OLED Memory problem

Hi Ben,

The Error messages talk of DRAM but in the data sheet for the device it has SRAM and Data Eeprom so which one is it referring to :?

Re: OLED Memory problem

Hi Ben,

Are you saying that I can use the component but I need to change to a device that has a larger amount of memory ?

Re: 5 volts supply design

Hi Steve,

So what you are saying is use the 5v out from the microcontroller to switch the negative side of a 12 volt circuit switching the relay instead of switching the negative side of a 5 volts switching the relay ?

thanks

Re: Pickit3 Cannot Find Boostc

Hi,

I have just copied and pasted the info instead of typing it and I must of had another mistake somewhere, it now attempts to program but now says its an invalid device so I will delve further.

Re: Pickit3 Cannot Find Boostc

Hi Jac,

Well spotted after I changed it, it then compiled to Hex, but when I try to compile to chip it says that it can't find the Hex file:

Hi Ben,

Thanks for the info, I have my Compiler, Linker, and Programmer details as you have except my version of mplab_ipe is the latest 4.05,

Before I get to prgramming I can't even compile to Hex as I get this error:

Re: Pickit3 Cannot Find Boostc

Hi,

I seem to be going round in circles following different threads, does anyone have a working FCF file for a Pikit3 using MPLAB 8, Pic I would be very grateful

thanks
Stuart

P.S. Are there any other Pic icsp programmers available yet that are easy to work with ?

Re: Pickit3 Cannot Find Boostc

Hi,

Sorry I am a little rusty, it looks like the compiler Path should be:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Flowcode 7\compilers\pic\bin\xc8.exe

I will give this a go and let you know how I go on

Re: Esp8266 and MQTT question

Hi,

The price of these seems to of gone crazy, the ones in Kersings link are no longer available and others are trending around £8.00 each and they have no aerial connector on them, I think there are other options available now, and maybe in time the price will come down.
