Re: Any thoughts on q41 parts?

I've been caught in this too, but so far it's been like playing "whack-a-mole" with redesigning things...
if you don't buy the parts when you see them available then when you go back they're gone.

If there's anything I can help with (besides actually finding parts), let me know, and good luck!

Re: Any thoughts on q41 parts?

Let us know how it goes, Richard. on another Note was the Q43 sram errata fixed ? and if so, is it easy to get the new silicon? Yes it was. B2 silicon fixed it, which was a few revs ago. How easy is it to get? Right now with the way things are, getting ANY silicon has been a real crap shoot. Dependi...

Re: Any thoughts on q41 parts?

I should have mentioned to make sure you have the latest library updates to V2.2.3.6

Re: Any thoughts on q41 parts?

So far, my experience has been generally positive. whats the adc like ? does it have any offsets and is the noise ok when using 12 bits? I haven't done any in depth measurements, so I can't really comment on this one. does the PPS work with confidance ie can i design the board for best layout rather...

new PIC CLCDesignerTool with simulator and PIC18F support

For those with an aversion to MPLABX, or who just want a simple, easy to use standalone tool there is a new, updated version of the old CLCDesignerTool available. CLCDesignerTool V4 adds features not available in the original version, including: * support for all PIC18 devices * support for up to 8 ...

Re: arduino ToneLibrary and Ringtone RTTTL Player

I updated the library to add user-defined events that get called when a tone starts and stops playing.

This can be handy to add LED displays, etc. Examples included in the new v1.1 download.

arduino ToneLibrary and Ringtone RTTTL Player

I've been playing around with generating tones lately, so I ported the arduino Tone library to SF and added a few enhancements like blocking/non-blocking mode, playing arrays, etc. There's also a RTTTL (RingTone Text Transfer Language)) player included I put it on the wiki... ToneLibraryAndRingtoneR...

Re: recent compiler problems

so i'm pretty sure something changed That's odd... I check USART.bas going all the way back to v2.2.3.0 ICC 1.2.0.0 and it's pretty much the same, so I don't think the baudrate settings should be any different. and on checking its back to ver 2.2.5 icc1.1.6.4 is this likely to my our it company rev...

Re: recent compiler problems

There've been some changes to the usart modules to add support for new devices, so it's possible that has inadvertently changed something and it's not picking the right combination of settings anymore. Try adding this to your 'include' section: #option USART_BRG16 = true Include "usart.bas" With SF ...

Re: recent compiler problems

The online update should get you V2.2.3.6. After that, download https://www.sfcompiler.co.uk/wiki/wiki-uploads/SwordfishUser/Modules/sf_update_2_22_2021.zip Unzip the file to a folder and run SF_UPDATE_2_22_2021.exe That will get you completely up to date with v2.2.3.6, ICC v1.2.0.7, and device files.

Re: Assistance needed with 18F27Q10 Sector Writes

The datasheet is clearly very misleading, if not downright just incorrect, with its inclusion of the use of TBLPTR for the sector writes. I agree, it is confusing. I think if you're only writing a byte or two then using the TBLPTR method to load the write latches is probably simpler. The thing that...

Re: Assistance needed with 18F27Q10 Sector Writes

Here's an example using the buffer ram to work with pfm sectors. Supposedly you can use the TABLEPTR to load the ram too, but it just seems to make more sense to me to use it as ram since that's where it's located. On the Q10 the buffer ram is a 256-byte block reserved for nvm sector operations. You...

Re: Assistance needed with 18F27Q10 Sector Writes

Hi Bernard, I think in order to use the sector write commands you need to use the special Buffer Ram locations, which you can find the address of in the 18F27Q10.bas device file... #define _nvm_bufferram_start = $0D00 // nvm buffer ram start address #define _nvm_bufferram_end = $0DFF // nvm buffer r...
