Hi All I hope someone can help me here. I've tried Microchip, but maybe I'm not explaining things well enough. I have a board which has a 32.768KHz crystal directly connected to the SOSCI/SOSCO pins on the dsPIC. After setting up the configuration bits correctly, for running internal FRC w/PLL, I wrote the program below, using some bits from Microchip demos, and programmed the device, b...

Hi all, I want to be able to use Ethernet in my projects but I'm so overwhelmed by its complexity that I don't know where to go. I've read and watch most of the information at microchip.com. I'm aware of the new PICs that have a MAC built-in and the ENC28J60. I'm also aware of the TCP/IP stack and the rest of the ... stuff (DHCP, ARP, etc.). The reason I say "I'm aware" is because I d...


Does Microchip play fast and loose with the GPL?

I've been looking at the PIC24 and PIC32 compilers from Microchip lately. These are based on the gnu toolchain. Their PIC24 compiler works for a month in a full-featured manner, and after that it goes down to a "student edition" that has most optimizations disabled. Once you pay megabucks you get them back. I initially thought this wasn't a violation because I assumed they wrote their own ...

I am trying to program a dsPIC33F chip with a programmer from microchip (ICD3 debugger and programmer), and I am also using the explorer 16 development board also sold by microchip.

We are using the Microchip MRF24JA40 802.15.4 RF transceiver, might look into Atmel's AT86RF231 and Freescale's MC13202 as well. We have one working board talking to a Microchip pre-made module, but two non-working boards. The only difference is the crystal. The working one is 5 mm SMD and the non-working one is 11 mm 2 pins. Could it be so sensitive to crystal selection? Do we need to p...

Hi, Has anyone used Microchip's MCP2150 IrDA protocol chip succesfully? I am using it on a product with a Vishay TFDU4300 IR transceiver and I get some frustrating results. It basically works, but getting a connection is not easy and often takes several attempts. Sometimes I turn it on, enable the IrDA interface and it works first time. Other times the PC software just won't connect. When i...

Hello from the Eighth Doctor I just received my sample order of 3 devices of the PIC10F202 (DIP-8 package), from Microchip today. Has anyone had any prior experience with this particular device? Or perhaps the PIC12 family? According to Microchip the PIC10, is a member of the PIC12 family. I'm not sure what they mean by this. What I am curious is how the devices were programmed, and wh...

Hi guys, I would like to know if the SPI ports are fully compatible between Freescale and Microchip ? I understand that SPI has become a "de facto" standard in the industry. The serial signals goes up to 10 Mbps, which is enough for my app, and saves data/control buses. Am I wrong to assume that SPI is always implemented the same way, and fully compatible between any chip ? I think ...
