PIC16F506 not available in Flowcode 3.6.11.53

Post by Rosenbaum »

I have a problem using the PIC16F506 in Flowcode 3.6.11.53.

It is not available . But I think it was in previous versions.

If I choose a PIC16F505 alternatively , I get an error-message, that the FCD is missing or has an error.

Hello

The support of the 16F505 and 16F506 chips has been dropped by the BoostC compiler therefore unfortunatly Flowcode can no longer target these devices.

Hello
I get an error when using 16F506 in FC6 ( Flowcode 6 )

error: could not open input file 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Flowcode 6\compilers\pic\boostc\config\PIC16F506.tdf'

Error in config file or not supported?

Best Regards, Danny

As stated in the previous message message by Benj, the underlying default compiler does not support this device. So it is currently not supported using BoostC. The data sheet lists it as Hi-Tech C only. Unfortunately this compiler has been discontinued and is no longer available. This basically means the device is not supported at this time.

Thanks for your reply, but ..
In FC6 you can choose him, so thats why the question.
I have replace it for the 16F1503, so for the other users of FC6 + .. that they are warned.

Hello,

Hopefully these chips and other currently unsupported chips (10F etc) will be available for use in v6 from April 2015. That is the current dev plan. This should also greatly speed up compilation times for the PIC chip pack.
