V8 Worth the Upgrade?

Realistically considering the bugs that seems to be permanently on the forums, the change of licensing of components from v7 (you get less), is V8 actually worth the grief and expense of upgrading. Obviously, Matrix staff think their software is great but since Ben and Leigh are not around the forum...

Strange Configuration Feature

Hi

Working through the datasheet configuring an 16LF1823.

Noticed that FV7 has a function that the datasheet makes no mention of - a 'Voltage Regulator Capacitor' it would be nice to use. Is this a phantom FC 'feature' or a cocked datasheet. What's the story

Thanks

Re: PWM doesn't work right - Arduino NANO

Hi rradojko, In addition to what Ben posted, coincidentally, I have just watched a video by Eevblog (I think it was on the series he did about the 3 cent MCU) he programmed a blink LED function and showed the output on the same type of logic analyser you are using -Silae and it's clones, He said tha...

Re: Finished Code Estimate

Thank you Both,

Hi Ben, yes in an ideal world this of course is the way to go, but I might need 30+ devices so there is a massive budgetary component to this.

Hi Abhi, that's great but was that compiled code produced with Flowcode?

Finished Code Estimate

Hi

Looking to size a PIC - just would like to get an idea/estimate in practice of finished code size to implement a Modbus slave system to drive a 2 output pins based on received byte.
I'm looking to use the PIC16LF18xx range, so will it fit into a 2K, 4K or an 8K device.

Thanks

Full Duplex Code

Hi

Does anyone have examples of Full Duplex code utilising the PIC/AVR Serial ports they could post ? Alternatively, a full explanation of the concept (ultimate goal RS485)


Thanks.

Re: I2C Multi Master

Hi Ben, AH! Sorry if this has been a PITA for you personally! I thought it would be a simple matter of adding/copying some functionality to the I2C Slave macro and it would 'just' pushed through all the ranges. I'm SOO temped to say PIC and AVR :lol: :lol: LOL. I'm still researching my design, but t...

Re: I2C Multi Master

Hi Ben I see no mention of Interrupt in my V7 I2C Slave component. The Slave does require the SSP interrupt which was added to devices fairly recently. So what do I do? Can this be implement in a C routine or you sent me a new component Doesn't I2C included (albeit basic) a handshaking mechanism usi...

Hi

Can the I2C Master Slave components operate in Multi Master configuration.
And does the Slave initiate and interrupt when data is received.

Possible SIM Slider problem

HI Have started messing around with the Sim components and found a problem. I have enclosed a very simple chart with both a simulation slider, knob and LED. The LED turns on when knob value gets above 100 all good. Now if you replace the knob with the slider nothing happens. Am I doing something wro...

Re: Howto :- 32bit addition from 4 Registers

Thank you both so much.

To model this in FC without the actual hardware I'm guessing I could use,say, 4 rotary switches configured to read 0 to FF - any suggestions on how to see the result of the addition
.
Thanks again

Don't worry Ben I have just seen that you now need a licence pack for vNet. Even so I presume I should get a console of some up -shouldn't I?
