#### 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:

#### 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

#### 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...
