Re: Future request

Hi Jan, We thought about using the 15-way D-type VGA connector for E-Blocks 2 but it ended up being a bit too large and bulky. Also we would hit the problem where customers see a VGA port and not an I/O port. I may still have some 15-way prototypes kicking about, I'll have a dig around the office fo...

Re: MPLAB Check Sum

Hello,

If you download and install the latest MPLABX and include the IPE software during the installation. Then run the IPE software and load your .hex file then it will calculate the checksum for you.

Yes this should all work in v7 too. The v7 component should already work but let me know if you have any issues.

Re: Multiple interupts at a time: good idea or not?

Hello, As with most things the answer is it's complicated. However yes in most cases multiple interrupts and disabling / re-enabling interrupts is absolutely fine. The one thing you can't do is change the macro assigned to a specific interrupt. We have a compile error message in place should you try...

Re: FC8.2 PIC18LF67K40 I2C brocken

Hi Igor,

Many thanks for chasing this one up. I have looked in the definition file and the chip was missing the remappable I2C support required by the hardware pins. This has now been added and pushed to the v8 update system so hopefully will now work correctly.

Let me know how you get on.

Re: GLCD with touch

Hi Abhi, The software channel simply uses standard I/O pins to re-create the bus. It is slower then the hardware peripheral and requires the microcontroller to sit and create the bus. The hardware channels use the internal peripheral to create the bus. It will run without the microcontroller having ...

Hello, Since I'm using it as an angle sensor, suppose the encoder rotates 45 degree clockwise and again by rotating counter-clockwise returns to its home position.

Yes the Itanium drivers will be required for server CPUs, however I believe the student and project board are HID devices and so do not require device drivers.

Visual studio 2019 should work fine with the VB examples.

Re: 18F67K40 UART Problem

Have you tried a single UART at a time?

Also

Is anything coming out of the TX pin? e.g. if you connect a LED does it flash or stay lit? Do you have access to a scope? Maybe it's working but at the wrong baud?

Re: 18F67K40 UART Problem

The UART registers look OK to me. The device does allow you to disable the peripheral clock and also the UART modules via the PMD0 and PMD5 registers. However the default for these should be enabled. You can check this will the following C code before you initialise the UARTs. PMD0 = 0; PMD5 = 0; Is...

Right I believe I've fixed the timer 2, 4, 6, 8 issue now and pushed the update to the system.

Can you send us an example of your UART project and I'll have another look at this for you.

Re: USB HID arduino leonardo

Great glad it's working for you now.

I think it was mainly down to the delay before the initialise to give the PC time to see the bootloader disconnect and the HID device connect.

The other delays are still required as the HID only transfers every 10ms.

Re: 18F67K40 UART Problem

Hello,

You are using the Heart macro for the timer interrupt and again inside your main loop.

Try this simple test instead, does this count up on the LED array, should be at approx 10Hz.

Re: LCD showing wrong characters in Flowcode 8

Hello,

Your program is working well here for me. What version of Windows are you using?

The LCD component uses the FixedSys font and so if you don't have this font available (which you should) then this could explain the problems you're having.
