Re: Timer Counter in Sim

Hi Have you had a look here? https://www.matrixtsl.com/wiki/index.php?title=Interrupt_Icon_Properties Each properties box in FC has a little help icon in bottom left that leads to their wiki which is usually very helpful. The timer interrupt will generate an interrupt at whatever frequency you have ...

Re: PIC10F322 - TEMPERATURE INDICATOR MODULE usage

Hi Sorry for the delay in replying again, I got caught up with some other issues. I've just checked and I don't actually have any chips with that feature. I was sure I did but..... Anyway, until I get some I won't be of much help but I'm sure the rest of the community will help with any questions. R...

Re: PIC10F322 - TEMPERATURE INDICATOR MODULE usage

Hi Welcome to the forum, a great place to be. I'm not the greatest of experts but chip in when I can and I'm sure others with better knowledge will jump in too. This (internal) feature, senses the temperature of the die itself (not ambient temp of room) and provides this to the ADC for processing. T...

Re: Stepper RPM

Hi Benj Yep, no load and I was just playing really as I've never really had any need to use servo's / steppers and now is a good time to explore. I can set the driver for a range of currents so my voltage can be whatever (within reason) and I did notice I could start it and then increase the rpm by ...

Stepper RPM

Hi I'm not looking for specifics, just a general rough idea and I do appreciate there are many variables. Using the FC stepper component set to PUL/DIR/EN and off the shelf generic "made in China 1.8d stepper / driver", what RPM could I reasonable expect to consistently achieve? Modifying the exampl...

Hi Jay Dee Thanks to both you and Martin for your replies. Never having used one I thought at first I was so very off in my understanding. Yesterday I set the component to give me two channels, connected up and didn't like what took place. Instead of motion I had two motors "stuttering". It didn't t...

"You already have LEDs in the form of 7seg displays, so why do you make use of them?"

Good idea to use the existing 7-Segments, no need to make up anything :)

Servo Assistance - Please

Hi Never had cause to use a servo before so I'm completely new to the subject. I obtained a few MG90S a while back and I'm only now starting to play. My understanding of how a servo operates, and if I am wrong please correct me, is that it needs a train of pulses to set/hold its position and the pos...

Re: in circuit debug

Hi I predominately use PIC so can only speak re such. Yes, you can view variables as the program runs on the hardware. I have found that ICD/ICT doesn't work with all my PIC's (most do) but when it does it is a very valuable tool to have. First you need to be connected to your target and assuming so...

Re: Easter Special

Hi Kersing

I bow as always to your superior knowledge :)

I did state I "suspect" that was the reason. However I use PIC and according to FC8 I am indeed using "xc8" but concede that other targets don't.

Re: Easter Special

Hi

I'm sure someone with far greater knowledge will answer with the correct reason, but I "suspect" it is to do with the compiler. FC6 uses "BoostC" whereas FC8 uses "xc8".

In the program above you have the UART on Channel 2 but your Interrupt is set for Channel 1 (RXINT0) instead of 2 (RXINT1). Your Macro won't get called.

Hi Abhi I don't have your chip but I do have it's big brother the 18F46K22. Whilst your chip has the second UART on Port B, mine has is on Port D. Other than that the differences don't matter for testing the ports. I created a small test program which I have attached. I'm using a Combo Board which h...

Re: Pic12f683 - rs232 FL8 in target do not work

Hi

I have it in FC8 but not FC7.

I'm running FC 7.3.0.7 and I've downloaded latest components from here

https://www.matrixtsl.com/resources/fil ... -11-19.zip

Maybe it does need a feature pack I don't have on FC7

Is it part of a feature pack? as I don't seem to have it and I think I've updated all components to latest.

Re: Data Injector issue

Hi

I will send over my files later.

I'm not using Arduino, I'm using PIC and I my target was an 18F4520 (simply coz it was in easy reach).

I've heard from MJU who is using an Arduino and he has his project working now by using FC7.
