HP-488 - PPP - Unknown Chip Type

Ben, The 16F886 is a supported chip for the HP-488 but when I try and program it using FC-6 v 6.0.9.0 it gives the pop up message: Matrix PIC Microprogrammer Unrecognised chip on Command Line <16F886> The chip is then programmed without any problem. So not an immediate problem as such, but you shoul...

Re: Flowcode v6.0.9 Live - Installation Issue

Hi Ben, I have just downloaded Flowcode v6.0.7 and then overwritten with the v6.0.9 patch, registered the installation, imported a known good FC6 program. It compiles to C OK but when it tries to compile to hex I get the error code below. This is a second install on my laptop for doing fieldwork (so...

I therefor though of using a clock to provide the PWM. This has the servo jumping all over the place, whichever clock I us...

Re: 18F46K22 Channel 2 PWM pin option not working

Thanks, I will have a look.

The 18F46K22 timer 2 setup also does not work properly, it shows two prescalers but only one prescaler works (evidenced by the interrupt generated being way too fast). I used timer 6 instead and this works correctly.

If nothing else, where can I find the set-up code so I can see what values are being placed in the registers?

Re: Incrementing character string ASCII value

Thanks,

I have tried your suggestion (using [4] + 1) with the result:

test01.csv goes to
test0.csv then
test .csv

It looks like something more is going on than simply incrementing an ASCII value. I will post further if something comes to light which might be helpful to others.

Hi, I am taking an existing file name, ABC01, and if present already, wanting to create a new name ABC02 to stop overwriting. The file name is used in the FAT component. Hence, I assumed that I would chop off the last character, increment it by 1, ASCII for '1' = 49 to get '2' fron ASCII 50 and then...

Hi, I am setting up some basic RS232 comms as part of a project. I have not been able to get receive to work (send is OK) with a 16F88 but swapping (arbitrarily) to a 16F876 got it working okay with the same code. I've been using the Echo function. My question is, however, more general: in Flowcode ...
