    Re: PIC USB HID breakout board

    I am "functional" with USB thanks to HIDmaker. It is a bit pricey, but it would do everything you need. If you can absorb the cost of the software (HIDmaker) into your project, I can help you get...

    Re: PIC USB HID breakout board

    There are not many options in the PIC 8-bit category for USB. 16- and 32-bit PICs have USB built into many of their offerings.

    Re: PIC USB HID breakout board

    Why not just use generic HID? You aren't required to select a specific sub-category. I use it exclusively.

    Re: PIC USB HID breakout board

    The PIC18F14K50 is a USB device with only 20 pins, but requires an external crystal to achieve the required 48 MHz Fosc for USB 2.0. Also, it has half the buffers and each buffer is half the size of...

    Re: I need to Tx always three digits

    Not sure how to integrate this thought into what you're doing, but I found when dealing with decimals for display that I create the variable that holds the actual value, and create an array to hold...

    Re: PBP3 and Mplabx5.10

    MPLABX 5.10 seems to be working with MicroCode Studio & PBP3.1.1.4. It also works fine with XC8_16, including DEBUG & SIM. I haven't tried using PBP inside MPLABX.

    Re: PIC USB HID breakout board

    You need a HID device that declares itself as a scanner reader (one of the sub classes within HID). I'm not sure you will find a generic off-the-shelf converter that happens to be programmed as a QR...

    Re: PIC USB HID breakout board

    FTDI sells just about every version of USB-to-Serial and back again type converters. Peruse their web site. Another option is to get HIDmaker where you control the USB transmissions yourself. (I...
  9. Re: Question regarding Interrupt handler - No DT_Ints used.

    UART Receive specifically came to mind with the "flags" comment. Unload the RCREG, set a flag, then figure out what it means later. This still requires an Interrupt to clear out the RCREG so the...
  10. Re: Question regarding Interrupt handler - No DT_Ints used.

    Section 6.5 (page 39) of the PIC10F322 Data Sheet declares the only context saving it does is saves the PC. Example 6-1 spells out the minimal Assembly code required to accomplish that feat (note,...

    Expanding my Horizons

    Recently I decided to learn to program in C, and learn about the 16-bit PIC processors. I bought a couple of books, the Microchip Explorer 16/32 Development Board, the PIC24FJ128GA010 mezzanine,...

    Re: Goodbye

    I just submitted an article to Nuts And Volts covering the Nextion TFT Display. If you want to add a touch screen, the Nextion has made it rather simple.

    Re: How to use TM1637 chip for LED Display?

    Don't know much about your TM1637, but the one thing that jumped out for me was:

    dio = bytetosend.0(cnt)
