Initial Connections and Setup.

I need info or direction on how to connect the EB006 to the computer and establish comm.

I have completed the initial Flowcode course and starting with the labs but so far have been unable to establish comm with the EB006.

Second question the course refers to a different PIC micro the controller I was sent is the 16F877a, is there a difference I should be aware of when setting up the comm.

Thanks,

Al

Hi amahone,

Make sure you have installed the USB drivers for the EB006, also posting the Flowcode error message you get in the compiler may help to diagnose the problem.

Well, we're making progress. I have established comm with the micro, but I am now getting a compiler message saying the micro has not been erased and the LEDs don't illuminate per the attempted sent program.

That can be a communications issue.
Sometimes cause by Eblocks plugged in on port B.
Another fix could be to temporarily switch the RC/XTAL switch to the RC setting only when programming the device.

Also have you got the programmer showing up in device manager?

But I would assume you have as you stated you have established comms with the micro.
