Re: Unable to assemble

David, Hello. I am using version 5.5.0.1. I tried various chips and the same error appears. Also, I have used the pic micros in the past without any trouble. I did disable antivirus but that did not change? Hmmmmmm? File name: C:\Documents and Settings\SKII\My Documents\Flow Code\Rc Switch\TractorLi...

Unable to assemble

Hi, i seem to be getting this error no matter what chip I use or code I write. I did not change anything in my settings either. I did a repair type re-install but that did nothing. I have checked to make sure that the file path is there, and it is Error: Failed to open:libc.pic16.lib or C:\Program F...

Momentary pushbutton debounce help

Hi, I know that my code could be improved but I am only interested in the debounce part right now. I made a project with a Pic12f675 for a flasher that will flash two tail lights on a tractor. The program has eight flash modes. It starts out with a count of ONE so it starts in a slow flash rate by d...

Pickit2 pic12f1840

Hi, If you are having trouble with pickit2 and pic12f1840, or other newer chips, then this may help you. Long story but I changed chip I was using from a pic12f675 for more speed. This was the first time using this (Newer) device. I was seeking help in another post before I found my answer which was...

Medelec, Hi. Thanks for all the help. I just happen to have some of those 1840 chips. I remember I bought them for some reason but can't remember why? In my code, I thought that the prescaler made the pulses (Not oscillator speed) run at 32xxx, I may have put an extra digit in there by mistake? As f...

Re: PWM pic12f675 time period?

Benj, Hi. I am able to generate pwm with this chip but the only thing I don't know is how to calculate, and then control the time period, which needs to be (Or is best) at 20ms. I guess in rc servos they call it frame rate?

PWM pic12f675 time period?

Hello again. While I have been using pic 12f's for awhile now with good results, I am unsure of what controls each part of PWM in code (Not C code though) as I have been doing OK without it so far. This time (Project) instead of reading PWM I am generating it. I just cannot seem to find out what con...

Re: PWM LED question

Benj, Hello I am using an example of code that you wrote for ramping an LED up and down. It uses tmr0, and macros ramp up, ramp down and flash. I really am trying to see where the duty cycle is being created here? I hate when I know something works but not how it actually happens. Thanks.

Re: CCP VS Regular I/O pin?

Hi, I want to decode the pwm, not make it. I have done it by polling on an I/O pin but I want to see how it would be done on a chip with the built in ccp? I just can't find even the simplest of examples anywhere? Any help would be appreciated : )

Re: CCP VS Regular I/O pin?

hi, this is no help as I have been there already . I really need a simple example if you could? Sometime it amazes me that information is so hard to find. I thought I was done using assembly but I wonder if that may be better than Flowcode sometimes?
