Flowcode 7 with PICkit 2 for dsPIC33

Postby v7chan » Fri Apr 28, 2017 6:55 pm

Hi,

Has anyone managed to program a dsPic33fj64mc802 with a PICkit 2 from inside Flowcode 7?

I can program a 16F84 with a PICkit 2 with no problems. But the dsPIC is giving me problems, it says chip not found. I have to use the PICkit 2 gui to manually load the hex file. Thinking the dsPic33 is not supported in pk2cmd.exe.

thanks,
Vincent

Hi Vincent,

Yes the PICkit 2 and PK2CMD was a great tool but was pretty limited in what chips it supported. You could try using the PICkit 2 with the new MPLAB X IPE software and see if that works. If it does then you should be able to use the compiler options to allow the Compile to Chip button to automate the process so your not having to load up the IPE software manually.
