Formula Flowcode upgrade 18F4455 to 18F4550

Postby Mark » Tue May 29, 2012 9:11 am


I am running out of memory on Formula Flowcode, by upgrading from 18F4455 to 18F4550
you get an extra 8k of memory. I have the chip. How can I do the upgrade?

Presumably if you can provide the code then I can program the 18F4550 using an EB006
multi-programmer board and then simply swap chips?


Go with the Flow.

In theory this would probably be doable, it would involve us providing the chip with the firmware as the MIAC/ECIO/FF firmware is not something we make publically available.
