Re: PWM Not working

The best thing to do is upgrade to Flowcode v10 which can be downloaded from here . All the components are now open source and free! There are no code or macro limitations, unlike all the other free versions. If you use the Free target devices mentioned here then you can develop and compile fully wo...

Re: Eblocks1

Sorry, Flowcode 7 is no longer supported.
Have you thought of up grading to Flowcode v10?
Some popular target devices and all the components are now free with no code or user call macros limitations.
You will need to register via here
There is no longer a 30 day trial as its not required.

Re: 18F27K40 i2c LCD fails but 18F2320 works

Hello.
Flowcode v10 is different as it has no trial, so no time limit.
So long as you have got one of the free target devices shown here and the required toolchains from here you will be good to go

Re: 18F27K40 i2c LCD fails but 18F2320 works

Hi I have tested the I2C LCD with Flowcode versions 7,8,9 & 10 There is only an issue with version 7, it works as expected with the other versions with 18F27K40 @ 64MHz As it does work on FC8 & 9, I would recommend trying a 1-sec flasher test first, to make sure the microcontroller is running at the...

Re: PIC16F15354 - Non-working I2C & 24C16 Macros

I have added a 1Hz flasher before the start of the EEPROM communication, to confirm the working of the oscillator & the flasher works fine. With the flasher was you using your eye to judge or a scope/logic analyzer? The C code is not needed as the clock is configured in Project Options > Configure ...

Ah, in that case by all means post the reply on here.
But in future, these forums are for Flowcode versions up to v8 only.
For any other v9+ issues, can you please use these Flowcode forums.

The only time the USB is required to be plugged into the BL0055 board is when using ghost or you want to boost the voltage going into the BL0055 and have not got the recommended power sup...

Leading zeros can't be used for non-strings as they will be treated as octal i.e. to the base 8 rather than base 10 If you did enter a leading zero in an expression eg MyInt = 0123 then the actual value of MyInt will be decimal 83, which will not be what you are expecting.

Re: LCD 2x16 I2C backlight

hello.
Yes, I believe it does.
It looks like the module's transistor is biased on via a base bias resistor.
One of the outputs from the PCF8574 pulls the base of the transistor low, to turn the backlight off.

Hi Bob.
The easiest way is by preloading the timer interrupt with a set value.
I have done that for a timer 0 example.
there is no reason why you can't do that for timer 2 as well.

Hi Howard. As v7 is no longer supported, I have attached the I2C.cal from v8 for you to try at your risk in V7 You will need to close Flowocode. Then make a backup copy of your current I2C.cal file found within: C:\Program Files (x86)\Flowcode 7\CAL\PIC Then you can replace it with the attached file.

Re: 15V Voltmeter at 3v3 mcu

Yes, that is a good way.
The alternative is to measure the two resistances, then plug the values in the above formula since resistors do have tolerances.
Then you can use that for that * value at the end of your formula.
