Porting V5 PIC program over to Arduino V8

Good day all.
I have a project I created in version 5. Can the same V5 program be imported/opened in V8 then recompiled to run on an Arduino chip. If so what packages will I need to purchase and what are the issues if any?
Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Re: Custom Baud rate assistance

Hi Benj Thanks for the quick response. I made the changes but I just get garbled characters. I created an echo loop that takes/captures the received character and sends it back via second port. I also did this with the native usart values and it worked fine. If it makes a difference and if it helps ...

Good day all. I am working with a esp8266 module. On start up is spits out data at a fixed baud rate of 74880. I want to be able to receive at the fixed rate than change over to 2400 bps. looking at the help file my options don't allow me to select outside of the options available. I thought to set ...

Re: How to toggle power to an LCD Screen?

Thanks Medelec35.
I took some time to go over the wiring and discovered a trace from LCD power to Vdd.
Its not in the PCB design, so I did not suspect it as an issue. I will need to take this up
with the board fabricator.
Thanks for the assistance.

Re: How to toggle power to an LCD Screen?

Thanks medelec35.
yes to the question on output voltage VDD 3.36 o/p high 3.36v. In the data sheet you stated that it states a maximum output low voltage is 0.6v.
I don't know how to account for that in my circuit, short of using a pin that can output 0v. Any Ideas on this.

Re: WDT not working. Won't reboot software

Thanks Ben I got it working. With your confirmation I was forced to look somewhere else. I unchecked the "use PPP to configure the chip" and instead used the CCSLoader ICD-U64 programmer application to configure it, and it worked. I did not think to do this seeing that I have had no proble...

Re: WDT not working. Won't reboot software

Good day all. I just got a replay from support at microchip.
I sent them a copy of my sample code. The recommendations
they made. I already have setup in PPP. I'm really thinking that
this is a flowcode bug / issue. Can someone please help
with this? Thanks in advance.

Re: WDT not working. Won't reboot software

Good day all. It's been a while since I tackled this issue. I am uploading this code sample in hopes that someone can figure out why this does not work. I have tried many different combinations but nothing seems to work. I'm starting to think this is a Flowcode issue. Thanks in advance for your help.

Re: WDT not working. Won't reboot software

Thanks Kersing. I don't have a test program. I am trying to implement this on production code. From the data sheet. I get that the WDT is independent to any code I write; except when I stop or start the WD timer and that's if I select to software control the timer. Aside from that I understand that ...

Re: WDT not working. Won't reboot software

Thanks Ben.
I did that. Than set the postscaler to 1:4096 which according to the data sheet should work out to about 16 seconds.
I let the device run as per-normal and nothing happens. Shouldn't the device reboot after the WDT times out?

Good day all. Can someone direct me to a good resource for interfacing and programming to/for a "4ma to 20 ma current loop" using flowcode as the programming language if possible.
Thanks in advance.

Re: How to toggle power to an LCD Screen?

Thanks again Kenrix2.
My project uses a 18LF46K80 fully maxed. I checked the
data sheet and it does not support connecting to LCD Glass.
I'll put this as and upgrade to consider in a future build of the
device. Thanks for the in-site.

Re: How to toggle power to an LCD Screen?

Thanks Kenrix2.
I'll look in to this. A few questions.
How do you communicate to the class?
Can you use a flowcode object, or do
I have to create the function to print
data to the screen?

Re: How to toggle power to an LCD Screen?

I was thinking that that would have the same effect sourcing VDD through the control or data pins?
