Re: "usb_serial_config.h": No such file or directory

Just to update - Sorry it's been a while :oops: Port 80 was reportedly always open, so given that I have the same license on my personally-owned machine I arbitrarily copied general and updated files/directories from my personal computer to my work computer. The only difference between machines bein...

Setting PIC32MX and PIC32MZ Clock Options

As MX and MZ clock settings feature strongly in this thread, I thought I'd share something that I came across and enabled me to quickly confirm appropriate clock settings and transfer them to configuration option in Flowcode. No reliance on Harmony o...

Thanks again Ben - I've no doubt you're on the money (again :) )

I'll report back once I've contacted IT to open port 80 for Flowcode.

Thanks Ben - You're a star !!! :D I replaced the existing USB_Serial.fcpx file with that you kindly provided and the project built straight off the bat without a hitch.

PIC32MZ UART Baud Rate

I'm coding embedded test code for a PIC32MZ2048EFG144 and have discovered that the Baud setting in the UART component must be set to precisely double the required Baud rate for comms to work, otherwise the usual garbled chars. In a C block I've attempted to force changes to PBCLK2 prescaler ( PB2DIV...

As I use CRCs with Flowcode a lot (particularly Maxim 1-wire, etc), and assuming you've got 256 Bytes of program memory to spare for an 8-bit CRC, I'd like to chip in with a popular alternative of pasting a 256-byte table (relevant to your CRC polynomial) to the Flowcode LUT component.

PIC32MZ UART Troubles - Pulling my hair out...

Hello All. I'm wondering if seasoned experts amongst us could shed any light... I've been pulling my hair out trying to get a single basic UART channel working on the PIC32MZ2048EFG144. 100MHz system clock settings suitably confirmed as UART Tx/Rx works perfectly fine in software mode at 115.2kbps, ...

Re: Custom Macro Colours in the Project Explorer

Thanks Ben - Much appreciated :)

I'm presently doing something similar, with untested and problem macros preceded by underscore, so it shoves them to the bottom and avoids visual clutter.

Still loving FC8 by-the-way :D

Custom Macro Colours in the Project Explorer

I'm presently working on a project that has over 60 custom macros for a multi-function test platform - and growing. A huge part of this exercise in the development phase is to test and debug the various macros, and would therefore be great to be able to custom-colour the individual macro icons in th...

Re: Software I2C for 36 channels - Will it work?

UPDATE:

I've since managed to find and switch to suitable SPI devices, so much easier to control logical CSBs and not have to deal with potential I2C bus hangs and power-cycling.

An interesting question though, for possible future reference.

Many thanks,
