Re: I can not get to my ICD3 or my PICkit3 to work in flowco

I am not sure if this will work for you but, if you have tried everything else and still can not get the PICkit3 to work you could try the following: Download and install the PICkit3 Programmer App and Scripting Tool v3.10 which is available in the Downloads Archive section. It is probably on the sa...

Re: 433mhz receiver

I don't have one of these units to test with so this is just an idea. No clue if it would really work. It would require C Code to implement and an understanding of the EUSART. Connect the signal to the EUSART RX and also to an input pin setup to cause an interrupt. Setup the EUSART for synchronous m...

Re: PIC16F150x missing Oscillator selections

Thank you so much for the update and for pointing out the fact that the 16F1503 and 16F1507 micro's do not have those settings. That was my error. The timely service of Matrixtsl is amazing.

Re: PIC16F150x missing Oscillator selections

Perhaps my version is out of date. Checking for updates says no updates available. Yet, for a specific chip the PIC16F1509 it does not have those selections. Could it be because I have the Chip Pack version?

If you need to program the registers in a micro, which is required to do what you need, without using the 'Insert C Code' icon you could try this method.

Somehow I missed your post medelec35 which is the reason for this late reply.

Read and Write to flash memory macros

The macros read or write a single byte at a time and are used in a style similar to that of how the EEPROM Component is used. These eeprom style flash memory macros are in blocks of 256 bytes. You can have 1 block (256...

Below is a conceptual program (no asm or 'c' code included) on how the write portion might be done using Flowcode. There are probably errors in it. There also may be enough information in the d...

Re: Stack problem?

If you suspect the reset is caused by a stack overflow/underflow, you could check the 'pcon' register to verify it. Below is a simple example on how to do that. You can easily add checking for the other reset conditions too. Out of curiosity, what happens if the software stack is disabled? (-swcs 6 ...

Re: WDT not working. Won't reboot software

I think the wdt postscaler needs to be (divide by 2) to get 16 seconds. Your assuming a wdt timeout will always reset the micro. It might just wake from sleep. So, it is not "independent of any code I write". Some things that will reset the wdt are: sleep, a write to the the clock ircf bit...

Re: Help Please: Lowest-power sleep and 25s wake-up

I understand that use of the WDT would initiate a reset

It doesn't, it just wakes it up. You can turn off the wdt after it wakes up if you like.
Due to the desire to keep wake-up processes short

If your using a crystal, try enabling 2 speed startup if it's available.

Re: Help Please: Lowest-power sleep and 25s wake-up

No idea how to set it up for an 18LF series but for the 16LF series like the PIC16LF1936 it is simply: wdtcon =0b00xxxxx1; where the x's are the time and the 1 enables the wdt. sleep(); If the gie bit is clear it will not vector when the wdt times out.

Re: 3D variable array?

Could you use three sets of 30 container arrays instead (3 * 30 * 8bits)? For example just add these string type variables to your project, X[29], Y[29] and Z[29]. I am sure I don't understand your question but, Flowcode is great at easily handling arrays.
