Re: Yet another TM1637 7 segment version.

That seemed to do it! Thanks

Looks like this rev of the chip likes a little higher delay.
Thanks !

Re: Yet another TM1637 7 segment version.

Ok So I did some testing. I have another tm1637 display. I tried it and it works with flowcode. Same basic thing just smaller / cheper. I also dug out an arduino and hooked it up. The small display works fine. And the bigger ones from the amazon link also work. So for some reason FC works with one a...

Re: Yet another TM1637 7 segment version.

Hi guys, I tried adding pull-ups didn't make a diff. I have tried three of the modules and none of them work. I am using the f303 nucleo just for testing because it was handy. ST issue? I can see stuff on the clock and data line on the scope, I have tried common cathode and anode. And I have set the...

Re: Can't get correct pwm speed going on PIC12f1501

I think I found it. It was the brown out detection. If I disable it it doesn't reset. Very strange.

Re: Can't get correct pwm speed going on PIC12f1501

I turned it off and it does the same thing. Power is stable and good. Totally disconnected the programmer and it still does it.
Hmmm

Re: Can't get correct pwm speed going on PIC12f1501

Gotcha, I did find something else strange. Just a simple delay loop about every second I get a glitch in the output.
You can see it on the scope trace.
And this is my program.
Any Ideas?

Re: Can't get correct pwm speed going on PIC12f1501

Hi Leigh,

Actually I am running at 16mhz. I was hoping that I could just set the pwn down low and let the hardware take care of blinking the led while the program did other stuff. I guess I could get creative with a timer and counters or just do it with delays..

Thanks,
Chad

Re: Add extra internal clock config stuff to PIC 12f1501

Thanks, I remembered seeing it a while back. It seems like that should be just built into the configurator?

I just posted a little pwm issue.. On to the next thing. . .

Yet another new chip;)

Can't get correct pwm speed going on PIC12f1501

I am trying to get a 13hz pwm out of the 1501 Cant' seem to get it going at the right freq. I set my properties in the component and enabled it. I am using channel 4 that should be RA2. I can get a 1k out but it doesn't seem to let me go below that? The display in the component looks right? Any Idea...

Hey, I found that. What I couldn't find was the Internal Oscillator Helper. Got it all going.

I have another problem now but I will post that elese ware.

* EDIT See above posts!

Hey, Just got the PIC8 Pack and I am playing with the chip and it looks like there are some config bit missing from the configuration.

Thanks,

Re: OLED with SPI SSD1306/SH1106 --> additional fonts

I don't remember if you can have different fonts on the screen at the same time. I do know that there are many fonts to choose from. Here is the u8g2 font list. https://github.com/olikraus/u8g2/wiki/fntlistall . If you want to emulate a good display package this would be where I would start. https:/...

Re: OLED with SPI SSD1306/SH1106 --> additional fonts

The way I look at it is if people are going to be using a oled or lcd they are going to be on a chip with a little more program space, or would be willing to bump up to a bigger chip. You aren't going to be spending dollars , tens of dollars on a nice display and fret over a single dollar for a bigg...

Re: Non-volatile memory on a PIC18F87J50

LOL, yeah I have a unique ability to pick hard to use things it would seem.
Right now my current experiment is with the PIC32MZ0512EFE064.
I'm going to need to be able to store some variables..

Re: Microchip questions for you all.

Sorry for the delay in responding. I have been really busy with work stuff. Been playing with stuff a little more, slowly sinking in. One question, why would you use harmony to instantiate a UART and not just use the FC component? Chad P.s. I ordered some of the little 8 pin pic's you like. Don't kn...

I agree, additional fonts would be really useful. The stock one Is kinda chunky..
Or at least a tutorial on how to import our own..

Re: LCD GUI

The https://littlevgl.com/ Is really cool. It would be a night mare to build it into a component.

I wish I was smart enough to get it running with my display somehow inside of flow code. Looks great!

Speaking as an ex lighting designer and someone who is also going to be using this, being able to adjust global brightness would be very nice to have.
