KS0108 Graphical LCD

I've just connected up a 128x64 Graphical LCD using the KS0108 controller. The use of this has now been simplified with the addition of a component in FC6. (I have used the display before, but with a I2C controller) I have attached a simple flowchart to use it as a bar graph temperature display. I h...

Re: LED Cube

Few updates over the holidays, the cube is now built and tested but not yet wired up to my controller circuit. Maybe a job for tonight. 20131224_120311.jpg 20131227_170327.jpg 20131231_161631.jpg As soon as I have the cube up and running I will publish blog 2 detailing the build and test stage.

Re: Vnet on Flowcode V6

Hello Carlos, There is an injector component which is designed to replicate the previous vNet functionality. Unfortunately I wasn't able to provide a good level of testing for this so even though it exists I don't think it works properly quite yet. Hopefully this is something we can get fixed for th...

Re: LED Cube

Ok we now have fully working rotations and Jonny has added a fire effect into the mix of animations. I'll post the program once it's been cleaned up and merged into a single demo file. Still lots to do, going to try and rig up a microphone and get the FFT DSP routines on the case. There was also men...

Re: LED Cube

Quick video of progress so far. I'll post the files for this tomorrow. I also messed up again with the FETs it seems :( getting strange results with them anyway so sticking with the TIP122 transistors for now though I have changed all the driver ICs over to the new chip now. Need to work on my FET a...

Storing a variable into FAR memory

Hello, On some dsPIC and PIC24 devices there are two types of RAM memory due to bus limitations, near and far. Near memory is fast to access but is limited by the size of the internal bus. Far memory is much less limited but means additional overhead when fetching or storing values. FarMem.jpg When ...

Experimental flash memory macros

I wrote some experimental code for erasing, writing and reading flash memory for some 12 and 16 series micros and thought I would share. You should assume there are errors in the code if you attempt to experiment with these macros. You can easily cause damage to your program or the chip or possibly ...

Re: PIC30F3014 ERROR IN WRITING (solved)

resolved

The problem is that the USB port can not give the necessary current programming.
I managed to program using a 5V auxiliary power

Re: Deactivate RS232 component for a while

Hi bercioiu,, Just confirmed that clear_bit(rcsta,7); does release both TX and RX so they can be both used as an output. Attached is a flowchart that I tested with. it does two things. 1) increment a count and send the number via RS232 to hyperterminal 2) toggle RX and TX pins 5 times, then jumps ba...

Collapse of loops,ifs..

Are there any way to collapse them?

If I have working loop or decision and don't need to modify it anymore then it would be good to collapse it to shorten the whole list for easiest review of the whole project.

Re: Unable to Export Component

Morning. Events There are various subtleties to Events and matching macros. One thing to remember is every event returns a ULONG type - this is the usual thing to miss when creating macros by hand. Easiest thing to do is let Flowcode create the macros and it will get everything right for that event....

Re: What to use to download to a PIC

Hi Hi Alberta2012, Did you get the PICkit3 working with your target device? It's vital that the target device is powered by either an external 5V or by the programmer. The programmer does not automatically detect if VDD is present when programming via Flowcode. Therefore if programming via Flowcode ...

Re: What is the best way to import existing c code ?

Hello Mathy, Code put into the supplementary code is put outside the body of the Flowcode macros and main allowing you to create functions etc. Code put in a C icon will be added into the body of a macro or main meaning if your trying to declare a sub routine it will cause compile errors because it ...

Re: PWM alternative pin is not working 12F1840

It took a lot of puzzling, but I found a solution. Using the Timer1, the Timer1 will be enabled with setting the Timer1 control register (T1CON) and enabling the Timer1 Overflow Interrupt bit (TMR1IE) of the Peripheral Interrupt Register (PEI1). Stopping Timer1 is done by ONLY disabling this last bi...

Here's a go at what you requested. Here is the component file it should be placed into the "C:\Program Files (x86)\Flowcode 6\components" folder. Currently the time and date will update every time you run the sim or compile. The build version only changes when you compile but I left the pr...
