Formula flowcode and Bluetooth EB024 Next Step

Post by Romain »

Hello,

I can connect the bluetooth eb024 board to the pic eb006 programmer (port C of the pic16F877a). With my PC and hyperterminal i can make a communication with ther eb024. It's work fine.

I have try to connect the EB024 board to the D port connector (pic18F4455) of the formula flowcode in order to remote control the robot but the bluetooth communication doesn't work.

Can you help me ?

Thanks

Romain (France)

Hello Romain

The Bluetooth E-Block uses the hardware UART by default which on the 18F4455 is connected to PortC pins 6 and 7. You can implement the bluetooth to be driven from PortD by going into the Bluetooth firmware driver and changing the hardware UART to a bitbanged software UART and also changing the other interface I/O pins to match. I know there is an example on Youtube of this working so if you contact the video author he may be able to help out with the code conversion.
