Re: Pic12f683 - rs232 FL8 in target do not work

You're welcome.
don't forget, after exporting you will need to reload Flowcode or flowchart for it to appear.

Re: Pic12f683 - rs232 FL8 in target do not work

No, does not need a feature pack.
I was solely created for V8.
However you can get it to work in V7.
Go to this post
Download

Code: Select all

IsSim.fcfx

Open in V7.
Add your own image for the component
Use the component export option within File menu.
You can then use it in V7

Re: Pic12f683 - rs232 FL8 in target do not work

What I do to use Is Sim function:
Click on the magnifying glass (Search) enter issim (no space between Is & Sim).
You should then see the is sim component.
You can also see it within Matrix Tools by selecting Runtime (Cog icon) components.

Looking at the datasheet its just controlling the frequency of the square wave and only whe the alarm match the time keeping registers.
Does that ring a bell?

Re: Using XC8 V2.00 or greater with Flowcode 8

The __interrupt change shouldn't be too much of a pain. Is the interrupt change even required? I have a large flowchart that uses Timer & RX interrupts, SPI and I2C (both hardware modes). I can switch from XC8 v1.45 to XC8 v2.05 with no issues at all and don't need to modify Flowchart to do it....

After adding component to 2D or 3D panel.
Right click on the panel component, then select Help.
If there are any examples you will see them on the page that will be displayed.

Did you have a particular component in mind?

Re: Counter not working in 16 bit

Might be worth trying the latest XC8 to see if it's a compiler bug. If you do then I would recommend looking here . Can you also try IntValue = ByteLow+(ByteHigh << 8) as If i remember correctly I have has issues with IntValue = ByteLow+(ByteHigh * 256) even though they are the same in theory.

What I do to check if interrupt is working or not is to add a calculation box within interrupt. Within calculation box add something like InterruptTriggered = InterruptTriggered + 1 using a global variable. Then keep send to value via UART or a display every second. If value stays at 0 you know inte...

Re: Problems with PIC12F629 that doesn't program them to work

Not sure whats going on as checked SFR registers on two different simulators and FC5 & FC8 hex files give similar SFR results.
Difference is FC5 does set OSCCAL = 0x80; as a default, FC8 does not.
Can you try final hex file please?
May not work, but I have had a go.

Re: Problems with PIC12F629 that doesn't program them to work

Ok the issues is with Flowcode V8 or XC8.
I'm surprised as its an old chip and only getting the port to change output.
It may have to be matrix staff that sorts this out.
I'm looking into it to see if I can get V8 to work.
Can't promise anything at this stage.

Re: Problems with PIC12F629 that doesn't program them to work

I can't see any issues with your Flowchart that would prevent LED from flashing. It could flash at slightly incorrect frequency as I believe OSCCAL value is factory preset to give correct 4MHz internal osc frequency. You are overriding this to center frequency by using OSCCAL = 0x80 . As setting a s...
