Learning Ghost

Post by Jay Dee »

Hi guys,
been away from embedded projects for a while but have a new side project on the go. So I thought I would look at Ghost again.

Is there any guides on using GHOST?
I did not find it all that obvious last time I looked at it a couple of years back.

Any tips or trick on using it?
I'm putting a Flowkit2 on order..
thanks, J.

Hi Jay,
Have you seen this Wiki entry?
There is also the Flowkit datasheet.

Hi Guys,
I have recieved the Flowkit V2, I've had a read of most bits I can find on the datasheets and forum...but a couple of questioins
A) for ICD ICT..which pins are used on the Flowkit to connect the the target's ICD Clock and Data. (typically for a basic PIC B6 & B7)
B) To confirm, do I only need those two pins connected to my target ( obvioulsly + target power )
C) If I am using the traget ICSP pins for programming, can I program through the FlowKit or do I need to swap between programming and ICD devices?
D) If I need to program through the ICSP pins, can I use ANY pins if ICD ICT or am I limited to certain types of pin?
Thanks, J.

Hi,
You should connect the Flowkit pin marked D9 to whatever pin is used as ICD Clock on your target
and the Flowkit pin marked D8 to whatever pin is used as ICD Data on your target.
The Flowkit cannot be used to program the target, it would need to be disconnected.
Hope that helps.
Leigh

Hi,
Trying to connect GHOST using flowkit2 with ECIO40P on a EB061 baseboard.
Both programming USB connected and Flowkit pins D8,D9 are connected to the ICSP pins on the baseboard.
D9 > B6 Clock
D8 > B7 Data

I enable the ICD, compile and send to chip.
Press 'play' and I get the "The chip does not contain the latest ICD build" message.
Do I need to set any other settings? or remove the programming USB?
