    Default Re: Has anyone tried AI with PICBASIC

    I don't see any issues with IC address - it is done according to datasheet.

    1. Write to Config register:
    – First byte: 0b10010000 (first 7-bit I2C address followed by a low R/W bit)
    – Second byte: 0b00000001 (points to Config register)
    – Third byte: 0b10000100 (MSB of the Config register to be written)
    – Fourth byte: 0b10000011 (LSB of the Config register to be written

    when has a 7 bit i2c slave address ever worked in pbp?

    Does manual say anywhere that it won't ?

    When manual says byte sized variables, it is implied 8 bits I guess.

    So this IC can't be used with PBP ?

    I cannot see how one can send only 7 bits when the integrated command is set to send 8 bits...

    I think you have to make your own routine, maybe in assembly.

    or convert the 7 bit address to an 8 bit address as i have explained multiple times in other posts

    just spotted this gem on the arduino forum

    you need to know better than the AI in order to know that the solution offered by the AI is wrong

    It makes perfectly sense!

    One cannot blindly trust the machine. The replies depend very much on the prompt anyway. So, if you do not how to ask or what to ask, then you cannot expect magic to happen, right?

    I would say, that for relatively simple coding routines, PBP knowledge of AI had been improved, but just when you ask something more complex, you'll get this:

    can you create picbasic pro code which will draw a circle on a LCD screen, which uses ST7920 controller?

    (I'm omitting some DEFINE's and other non-relevant stuff)

    Code:
    ' Initialize LCDLCDINIT' Main program loopMain:    ' Clear display    LCDOUT $01    ' Set cursor to home    LCDOUT $02    ' Set display to graphics mode    LCDOUT $3F    ' Set start line to 0    LCDOUT $40    ' Set display start line    LCDOUT $C0    ' Draw circle    CIRCLE 64, 32, 20
