tierd level support?

First let me say that I think on the onset for a non programmer and people just starting down the path of micro controllers that flowcode is a wonderful product. I have one major issue.

Re: RS232 Program conflict

Ok scratch that I was looking in the wrong section of the data sheet. I found bit 5 of register address 8ch RCIE in PIE1 is the correct address and enable bit and that bit 5 of Address 0ch RCIF is the correct flag bit. I tryed to put these values in as is with no additional enable code and here what...

Re: RS232 Program conflict

Thanks Ben. I took your advice and done some reading through the forum and the data sheet for the F1690 and on page 133 of the data sheet it say that the enable register address is 18h is that what goes in the custom interrupts Enable register? It also say that the enable bit is Bit 7 am I correct w...

Re: Timer1

Ok I think there are other issues with the FCD. The error's gone but the interrupt's still not working, are there other issues with the 16F690 file. From the beginning the timer1 and timer0 were working. After I had the problem caused by the RB Port change interrupt the timer1 and timer0 stopped wor...

Re: Timer1

I also notice that in the Interrupt list there is an RB0 But the data sheet for the 16F690 does not have an RB0
pin. Please help with this.

RS232 Program conflict

Good day all. I have a program where I am using timer 1 to maintain a time clock and flash an Led as a status indicator. I also have in main a loop containing an RS232 component receiving data and updating a variable which is then bit banged out at 2400bps. What I noticed is that the RS232 works fin...

Re: Timer1

Compiler error. Benj or Steve I think this might tie in to what was done in this situation. When I try to use the RB Port change I get this error. The timer 1 is working fine. Ondra C:\E-Tank\flowcode\ElinK\BBRS232.c(397:9): error: unknown identifier 'RBIE' C:\E-Tank\flowcode\ElinK\BBRS232.c(397:9):...

Thanks Benj. It looks a bit much for me right now. I'll work with what I have until I get pressed.
You've been a big help, thanks for your time and patients on this one.

Re: NVM and DAC

Ok. Sorry I'm still on this topic, but here's the situation. Using the RS232_RX.fcf example I set the bit delay to delay_10us(41); that's to receive at 2400bps. I set the delay and a half to delay_10us(62); in the decision "In < 255" of the main macro I put an RS232 send macro call with th...

Re: NVM and DAC

Ok here's more detail. In a loop I setup an RS232 component to receive into a variable named dataout. I put the bit bang macro in the loop with the RS232 Receive macro with dataout as it parameter.

Re: NVM and DAC

Thats what I thought, and I did try it. Maybe I'm not understanding how to use it. In the RS232 Receive macro I put for parameters = 1 and for return variable = Data. Is that right? If it is, it didn't work. I even tried to putting the macro call in a loop. No luck. I tried converting the byte data ...

Thanks Benj. Two things. 1)In both example you show outputing a single letter. If I wanted to output a word or phrase would it be as simple as Data = "whatever word, phrase or number" or would there be other manippulations needed. 2) What is masking off a single bit. What does "maskda...

Re: NVM and DAC

I was thinking that the SPI componet would automatly impement the SS pin. i.e I would just connect the SS pins from both units along with the SCK, SDI, SDO and just start sending data with the SPI component handling all the protocol stuff. This is the instructions for using a device that...
