USB Host for16/32 Bit PIC's

I am just getting into USB and making progress. However, many of the devices available today do not come with serial interfaces, just USB. It would be a shame to miss an opportunity here and omit a USB host function that can be built into our projects. Even the ability to build a USB host controller...

Re: LCD Controllers

Hi Steve001

Have a look at this web site, it has details which show compatability to HD44780 controller.

Re: 18F4550 with WLAN_ESP8266 doesn't work

Hi MJU I apologise if I have got this wrong, but if you are using the file ' Flowcode2.fcfx' which you posted earlier, then according to the build setup, my configuration show this: Flowcode2 Port B.jpg The port B is set to an analog input configuration, instead of Digital. Might be worth checking y...

Re: Automatic barrier project

Hi jbb29200 I have had a look at your 'Radar' project and therefore I agree with medelec35.

Re: Automatic barrier project

Welcome jbb29200 to our forum When doing projects that sound complex, it is a good start to try and think of them in terms of their functional parts. The radar - I would think of this as a switch. Water high - ON. Water low -OFF. Now we can use this switch within flowcode as a switch - INPUT. Now th...

Re: Serial USB - Unsigned Driver Fail

Hi Benj

I have dug a little deeper and found this:
USB PnP Devices.jpg
USB PnP Devices.jpg (201.22 KiB) Viewed 10811 times
So, not sure how to fix this one, I think its a 'Windows Device Policies' issue. I'll work on it over the next couple of days to see what I can find regarding 'PnP' USB communication. I'll keep you posted.

Hi Chris

Great, so just to clarify, your purchase is listed as 'owned' within your online account at Matrix. Now, from your installed Flowcode 7 software, you are trying to activate using the 'Active Purchase' by inputting your account details. Q. What is the message you are getting now?
