EB083 Dev Board

Post by medelec35 »

As the test routine on this page is in hex format, and it's for 16F88 as stated within the datasheet.
Verified not working with 16F1937
Do you think it would be a good idea to Just use a flowchart?
People may just want to use their own target device or just the microcontroller that's shipped with EB006 (16F1937).

Also which position is SEG0, Nearest switches or nearest edge of the board?

On my revision one board its labelled as nearest the Edge.
However with EB083 component, SEG0 is nearest the Switches.
Although there are no labels on the model.
Perhaps as an update, the model can have the labels SEG0 to SEG3 added?

Hi Martin,

I've re-uploaded the test routine file and it now contains the source as well as a 16F1937 version of the hex file.

The labels on the EB083 board are wrong. The Right most segment is segment 3, the left most segment is segment 0.

This has been fixed on the EB2 version of the board but adding the labels to the components is a good idea so I'll make sure this happens.

Edit: Was quick to do so while it's in my mind I made the change to the component.

Thanks Ben.
Perfect!
Makes life easier when involving Quad 7seg LED Display.

Hi Ben I have tried the hex file witin the source folder and does not work for me.
Looking at the flowchart, I was confused:
EB083_Test V7.png

I thought the board connects to ports A and B since using internal OSC and EB083(V1) does label connectors PORT A & PORT B.
With EB006 V9 jumper on A6&7.

I wondering about duplicate LCD & pots + 2 switches arrays are connected to port A
Also 2 led arrays are connected to port B

Switches and LEDs is just cosmetic as I/P and O/P ports are correct within Flowchart

Hi Martin,

It looks like we made the test file before the component was done and so it's probably not ideal. I might have a refactor if I get some time later on and redo the code using the EB083 component.

The LEDs and Switch arrays are connected incorrectly which doesn't help, I noticed this only after uploading the file. As you say it's only cosmetic but could easily cause confusion for users especially if they are trying to simulate something.

The duplicate LCD allows the test messages to be printed to an LCD on Port D while testing the combo board on A and B.
