Improvements for RS232 serial component

To check if there is any data RS232 serial buffer it must be read, returning 0xFF when there is no data. This 0xFF impact on USART console data, making it impossible to use. To improve the usage of the UART component, I would like to propose an approach similar to Arduino, where a FIFO (size defined...

Can V8 simulate RXINT?

I am working with PIC16F18855 on Flowcode 8, but the RXINT is not working. I ca read the serial port in main loop, using injector data, but the interrupt never happen. I found a similar problem on V6 ( https://www.matrixtsl.com/mmforums/viewtopic.php?t=12909 ), but I was not able to find any confirm...

Decision ignores calculation text length

I am using flowcode 8 and I observed the decision box is ignoring the calculation box text length.
This problem does not occurs with other box than calculation.

Interrupt using the zero-cross on PIC16F18855

I am running the Flowcode 8.
I want the create an interrupt handling using the zero-cross detection available on PIC16F18855, but I was not able to code it. I appreciate any help to:
1) Enable the interrupt.
2) Set the interrupt handler.

Best regards,

warning WS2811 Timings are less than 10 instructions

I am running Flowcode 8 with PIC16F18855 at 32MHz and I don't understand the warning message for RGB LED WS2812B I selected. Besides the RGB LED tape accepted baudrate of 400Kbps or 800Kbps, it cannot be selected on property nor by the firmware algorithm. I believe this error occurs on miscalculatio...

That is the point. I was not able to simulate the Hx711 on Flowcode. The only way I had to test was upload the firmware to Arduino. On the test I sent all Hx711 reading through the serial USB and use the Arduino serial monitor tool to read the measurements. That is the reason I asked for the tutoria...

Re: Component for Hx711

I did my own implementation and it is working.
I have two prototypes: with 1 Hx711 and with 4 Hx711.

I would like to know if you could create a video explaining how to create the component, complementing the wiki?

It will be nice if you could explain how can I simulate the Hx711 operation.

Re: Debugging the USB Serial port on Arduino

I replaced the USB_Serial by the UART component and I was able to receive the data from USB port. :?
I dislike the solution, but it works.
It looks like there is some problem on USB Serial component that does not transmit anything.

Re: Component for Hx711

Hi Mr. Smart, :D

I read your post about the hx711 macro in 2016 (FC6), that why I ask my question.
I thought it should be added to the library after two years and two FC releases.

Thank you for your reply.
