Re: GLCD ILI9163 (EBM001) Equiv

Hi Ben Yes, you are correct. The HEX file does contain all of the character ROM data, produced by FC7. When the HEX file is sent using the Pickit 3 - works OK. However, when the same HEX data is sent by the EB006 V9 (using the program via HEX file) - the ROM data is not sent for the remaining ROM ad...

Re: GLCD ILI9163 (EBM001) Equiv

Hi Ben I've tried changing the clock speed, slowed it right down but same problem. It appears to me that the ASCII data is stored on the EB006 V9 board, which is now corrupted, how, I just con not fathom out. There's a hex file stored in the FC7 directory which is called EB006-00-09. Could this be t...

Re: GLCD ILI9163 (EBM001) Equiv

Hi Ben

I have found the problem is with my EB006-30-V9 board. I have produced a hex file using FC7 and programed the chip using PICKIT 3, everything is working OK. Is it possible to correct the fault with the board?

GLCD ILI9163 (EBM001) Equiv

Hi Everyone. I am having trouble getting this display to produce text correctly. I have a working project which uses this display - equivalent to the EBM001. Everything worked well pre March 2017 build 7.1.1.0. However, with the latest FC7 build (7.2.1.4) I cannot get this LCD to display text - just...

Re: Enabling A Register On A Pic

Hi Sparkoids

If you don't have any luck with the component, I would like to give it try and make one for FC7. I have had a look at the base CAL for FC7, it appears to allow you to get access to all of the channels for the ADC block.
Let me know if you're interested.

Re: User Component Folder as Seperate Menu List

Oh,

I forgot to mention, you need to add the following - 'forward slash', to make it load the component menu correctly as shown:
</category>name="User" hint="" icon="$(cmpntdir)\catimgs\User.png" tooltip="" />
  </category>
</root>

Re: User Component Folder as Seperate Menu List

Hi Ben

That's brilliant. Well, it took me longer to find an ICON that I liked than it took to set up. Nice looking feature though, my own special list of components, I like it a lot. 8)

Thank you ever so much. You are a star.
