#### Re: Watchdog timer not working as expected

This is not correct. The original code is fine.

The keyword DEFINE is a PBP keyword so it's NOT case sensitive, can be define, DEFINE, DeFiNE, DEFine, however you want to write it. The thing that...

#### Re: Newbie Manchester Coding question

Looks straight forward, esp if you use a chip with gate control and can set a timer to count in 1uS increments

what did you have in mind ?

#### Re: Watchdog timer not working as expected

From the PB3 manual

2.15 Case Sensitivity
PBP is not case sensitive, but Assembly Language is. This means that there are
situations where case matters

2.15.1 DEFINEs
Since many of the...

Apologies, I was beginning to think nobody was responding so it's been couple of days since I've checked.

They're old temperature sensors I picked up cheap and I was hoping to utilise for a...

Check this one first:

and then check this one second:

or reverse the order.

#### Complex math on 16F series?

d = 1 / ((x1 - x2) * (x1 - x3) * (x2 - x3));
a = d * (x1 * (y3 - y2) + x2 * (y1 - y3) + x3 * (y2 - y1));
b = d * (x1 * x1 * (y2 - y3) + x2 * x2 * (y3 - y1) + x3 * x3 * (y1 - y2));
c = d * (x1 * x2...

#### Re: Help with Using the Catalex MP3 Player

There’s another switch contact on the rotary dial to tell you the dial is in the home position doing nothing.
The dial switch does nothing while the dial is being rotated clockwise by the finger so...

#### Re: Watchdog timer not working as expected

If you haven’t tied your MCLR pin high or disabled it, you could get an MCLR reset any time.
Same with a brownout reset. I haven’t checked this hex configuration values you gave (nobody is going to...

#### Re: Si4702 FM Radio chip

My code in here is probably more sensible for PBP. In code examples is dirty to get most out of 16F628a.

Up to you, but that DT code link above is an otherwise lost original I think (which I...

### What is Amicus18

Amicus is a multifunction development system inspired by the popular Arduino board, however, the Amicus board uses a Microchip PIC® microcontroller instead of an Atmel AVRtm type.

Comprehensive documentation and a helpful and friendly support environment, make using Amicus18 an easy and enjoyable experience for beginners and seasoned programmers.

Forum Moderator Mackrakit (Dave) very kindly ported the Proton BASIC Compiler code over to PBP3 and modified the original AMicus18 docuemts for PBP3 users.

Hi,
I don't know what the "best" way to aproach this actually is. I don't think me posting hundreds or thousands of lines of code is going to actually help others that much and I don't think I'll get much out of it either.

Instead I think I'll post snippets and routines, explaining what they do (or at least intend to do) and why. This way I think it's easier to tag along, one step at the time and, which is important, ...
