    Yes, it will definitely be a problem unless I come up with a better way of updating the display. Right now, it displays "live data" as it happens and depending on the events, the refresh rate could...
  5. A question for all those who have played with LCD displays

    I came across this problem in the past when programming LCD displays with 6800 and HC11 series
    processors and now with the F628 chip.
    I'm currently developing a program that uses a 4x20 display to...

    16F181: can't wake up from sleep

    OK guys, here is my dilemma. I've been at it for a while now and can't get the PIC to wake up from sleep. What am I don't wrong?
    The idea here is a switch connected to PORTB.5

    Good stuff. Thank you for running the tests for me.
    Looks like I'll have to go with the original plan as you have suggested.

    You know... you might have something going here. I'll explore this option as well.

    Now that I think of it, the original way might work as well. I'm just worried about the size of the program...

    I see your point, and it DOES make sense. :)

    My only problem is that this variable will be distributed in numerous locations on the LCD screen. Had it only been one location, I wouldn't be too...

    that did it! The transmitter now spits out good data.
    In addition to the increase in the array size, I also had to make the following change from:

    You can, but you need to make sure you don't exceed the array boundary.

    A 4 word array only goes from 0 to 3. Not 0 to 4.

    Thank you for the reply Bruce...


    EncodedData var word [4] should be EncodedData var word [5]

    You mean you can't use a zero for an array pointer?
