Of course, it's a win-win situation, the more money you spend the more you earn - can't go wrong really.
Some people... At least it was posted in the adverts section.
Good one, 5* ha,ha!!!
yes typo -- thanks.
I'll install the epic first, I think that's what I need.
I can't say anything about the programmer you have.
As far as PBP and MCS goes I don't think it matters really but MCS needs to know where PBP is installed and it can find it for you...
Later on today I'm going to install --
Micro code studio -- PBpro (2.46a) and Epic programmer. It's been several years since I've used these and if I remember right, I had a problem way back when....
I don't think you have to mess with RS. Looking at the datasheet for the VFD it says this:
So it sounds like the brightness byte goes out as normal data would... you just have to send it right...
Of course you can. You can mess with any of the signal pins as much as you like.
It's only on the falling edge of the Enable pin that the state of all other pins are latched to the LCD.
You realy can't mess with RS, it is Instruction/Data register select (0=Instruction 1=Data). From the datasheet -
Lcdout will set RS high to send data and low to send an instruction.
You didn't show the code you tried.
I'd try first simply sending the command as data,
or send it yourself. Just present what...
Finally I did the test on a 16F887 at 8MHz, and came up with a 49 usec to enter ISR and around 45 to exit.
The code I used is this:
wsave var byte $70 system
wsave1 var byte...
