    Default PIC12F1840 & serout2

    Hi,
    Anyone used the PIC12F1840 with serout2? Any tricks to it? I can't get anything out.

    Regards,

    Troy

    Can't say I've used that specific command with that specific part but apart from the usual stuff* I don't see why it shouldn't work.

    * Where the usual stuff would be:
    Correct oscillator configuration.
    Analog functions on pin(s) in question turned off.

    The 12F1840 does have an EUSART, use that instead - if you can.

    If you need further help post the code.

    /Henrik.

    there may be a clue in the manual

    SEROUT2 is not supported on 12-bit core PIC MCUs due to RAM and stack constraints.

    Damn, I can't believe I missed that. Thanks for the answer Richard. I only need a really slow baud rate so I might try the old serout. Failing that, it'll have to be the EUSART although my experience with the EUSART on the PIC18F14K50 is it chewed up a quite a bit of juice when enabled...

    Cheers,

    Troy

    Ummm... now reading p10 of the datasheet "This family of devices contain an enhanced mid-range 8-bit CPU core". So, I'm guessing it's not 12 bit?

    Okay, the EUSART seems to work fine and doesn't appear to consume any noticable extra power for this chip so hardware serials comms it is.
