    Re: USB to send ASCII characters to PC

    @Ioannis What would you want an app to do with the data? If some kind code elf were to create an app for you it would make more sense to us Vendor (otherwise known as Custom) which is a variation of...

    Re: USB to send ASCII characters to PC

    Are you writing a windows app? If so you can use those control lines to allow your hardware to tx. BTW hope I'm not teaching you to suck eggs but although you might assume that pressing CapsLock...

    Re: USB to send ASCII characters to PC

    As you will be creating another keyboard, any output will be sent to what ever window has focus.

    Re: USB to send ASCII characters to PC

    Perhaps you could use one of the three 1 bit outputs NumLock, CapsLock and ScrollLock to implement flow control for your hardware.
  5. Re: Looking for info - functions built-into PBP3 for controlling HD44780 displays?

    I'm pretty sure it's part of the compiler. The manual for the 44780 shows the string to send to get into the various modes.

    Re: breadboarding

    Plugin breadboards suck, they are more trouble than the time they save. Make a PCB (or stripboard) with your goto PIC device and add stuff you want to try out on daughter boards, kinda like the...

    I see you're a subermod but I don't see how running a USB capable PIC device as CDC help the op problem.

    Don't seem to be able to edit my previous - should read "perhaps with a similar descriptor format?"

    Re: Sample code for USB - MIDI

    The problem with finding descriptors for other format compilers is trying to convert them. Have you looked at other PIC device Basic compilers, perhaps with a similar format?

    Re: BME280 sensor.

    "are cheap ebay things always a bit dodgy?" not in my experience, most seem surprisingly interested in protecting their feedback score. Try email seller thro ebay and explain the mistake.

    You do realize 750ms is three quarters of a second? Fan speed will be very wobbly.

    Re: BME280 sensor.

    Yer, the compensation is horrible. Sorry don't have PICBASIC code but do have working code from the dark side.
  14. Re: Can we have multiple 1-wire devices on single pin?

    Works even better if you but the serial numbers in an array, easy to ammend, or add or iterate.
  15. Re: Can we have multiple 1-wire devices on single pin?

    True, but isn't it easier to know which serial as you install each device.
  16. Re: Can we have multiple 1-wire devices on single pin?

    I've never understood the logic behind the find all the serial numbers function, unless you know what each device (using it's serial number) is measuring it seems pointless. For example in s asystem...

    Re: PIC equivalent 80c51

    There really is no shortage of 8051 dev environments, there's even Bascom if you want Basic.

    Re: PIC equivalent 80c51

    Many Microchip devices come in 44 TQPF and QFN. But the chances of Vcc and Vss lining up are pretty low.

    PPS will be your friend (for once).

    Probably better to make a daughter board.

    Re: Virtual breadboard?

    The point about a traditional debugger is that it has no connection with the real world, switches, lights, spi peripherals etc. etc. Having said that you can use Proteus as a single step ot...

    Re: Virtual breadboard?

    That is part of the core function of Proteus. It smooths the whole process from create schematic, run and debug code (not sure about PBP support but Proton is supported natively) to create PCB. The...

    Re: Virtual breadboard?

    There are many simulators, the usual problem is that the simulation is never perfect and that not all (a huge understatement) devices are supported. Proteus is good but very expensive (although an...

    Re: Touch switch ON/OFF

    Possibly stupid question but why not have one touch switch, first press turns on, next turns off ... ad nauseam.
  24. Re: Confirm 18f47k40 MSSP setting and allocation using PSS

    FWIW there's a really good tool for setting PPS on GCB. Google for PPS Tool for GCB, it really does take the agro out of PPS.

    Re: Snap programmer

    Good advice, but having got it working with IPE why bother with MPLabx? From memory theres a CLI (or similar) within IPE to allow programming from PicBasic IDE (ala PK2 et al)
