MPLAB Check Sum

When I compile to hex where is the checksum?

When I program I still do not see the checksum?

I need to have our program preloaded into the microchip but need the checksum for the board stuffing house.

Switch Simulation vrs Target

I am slowly getting all my amateur issues resolved. Thanks for all the help and patience Ben and Dave! My target has pull ups on the switch inputs so it needs an active low function. If I set the switch active low, the function wait until low, it works correctly in the target but the simulation is b...

Timming issues Flowcode to target 16F684

I have downloaded the following code into the target and I have a programmed LED 1 second on time that is 5 - 6 seconds at the target.

What do I need to do to to get them to equal. Thanks, Howard

Re: Settings for 16F684

I have the programming in the target working now. I would still like help on: I have a 2 second programmed delay at startup for a switch hold program function but it is more like 10 seconds in the target. What do I need to do to have the program time match the actual target execute time? Thanks, How...

Re: hp488 Connector programming help

I am using a HP-488 with a PICF684 mounted in a target board. I have followed the above instructions including the link. When I attempt to program I get an immediate error "Could not ID the on board chip". LED 1 is continuously flashing and LA0 LED is on. I click ok, then i get the message...

Re: Settings for 16F684

Hi Ben, I went ahead and hand built a target testing board for the 16F684 which is now working as I expected. So I now have a few new questions. I have a 2 second programmed delay at startup for a switch hold program function but it is more like 10 seconds in the target. What do I need to do to have...

Re: Settings for 16F684

Hi Ben, Thanks for the response. It still does not appear to be working and I am more than a bit disappointed to see that it is really not supported as the 16F88 where I could fully test the code in the target utilizing the on board switches and LEDs. Is there a development platform that supports th...

Settings for 16F684

I have been using the HP-488-00-3 with the standard installed 16F88 to develop my code which has worked very well. I have changed over the code to use our actual target 16F684 which the simulation works fine and it compiles/programs the chip without error but it does not work in the development boar...

Re: EEProm Initialize Help?

Hi Martin,

Thank you again for the help. I now have it working!

I have noticed a 3 second delay after write in most of the examples. Is this correct for a 16F88??

Warm regards, Howard

EEProm Initialize Help?

Ok I have all the functionality now working well (thanks to Martin) and would like to store a variable into EEProm. I obviously need to program an initial value either when the part is burned, or at the very first power up and then check to see if it has been changed and use the new value each time ...

Re: Double Click Single Switch Code

Hi Martin, Thank you very much for your continued help. It looks like the active high version matches the simulator and hardware and this is great. You have simplified the program nicely, but pressing the main button after the LED and Lasers or LED in the on state should turn them back off and it do...

Re: Double Click Single Switch Code

Hi Martin,

I have incorporated your double click design and it is working well as is. No need for interrupts. Note: The the loop time is 15 for the hardware and 75 for the simulator.

Thank you very much for your time and efforts.

Have a great weekend.

Cheers, Howard

Re: Double Click Single Switch Code

Hi Martin, Thank you very much. The laser only switch is not standard, but a special add on for some customers. Normally there is just the one switch. I am very open to the interrupt version if it is better. I have not committed anything to hardware yet just using the demo board for now. I will star...

Re: Double Click Single Switch Code

Hi Martin, Thank you very much. I am really excited about programing again though it has been decades since my Z180 assembly days. I did fill out the form in the link with regards to V5.1. Yes please move it my apologies. In the attached code you will see a single push turns on the LED and Lasers. A...

Re: Double Click Single Switch Code

Hi Martin, Thank you for the quick reply! Sorry for the omissions: Version 5.1 Using standard HP-488-00-3 on board PIC 16F88. I have not changed anything from start. How does the counter accommodate a press, release, press again, release? This seems like a hold function similar to what I have now. I...

Double Click Single Switch Code

I have been having a great time programing our new LED timer control board. We only have one control switch, a momentary push button, and I have been successful with single press and various press and hold timing functions but cannot get the double click function to work well at all. I have done var...
