I have a Microchip ICD 1 in circuit programmer/debugger that I've been using for awhile now. My new computer only has USB ports unfortunately, and the ICD is only serial. I bought one of those Belkin USB -> serial port converters, but MPLAB doesn't seem to recognize the ICD. I've confirmed the correct port and speed settings. Is there something I'm missing? Does the USB-> serial converter

Hi all, I am using PIC16F88 as an I2C slave. I have attached the code that I used. From the Microchip MPLAB ICD 2, I find that I am able to detect the start and stop conditions. But I find that SSPSTAT is not getting set. The program is getting stuck in the "gnb" loop. From the Microchip ICD2, I can see that SSPSTAT and SSPSTAT get set after the Start and Stop condictions. But no


Fate of PIC32 If Microchip buys Atmel MPU business.

Not that anyone can do anything but guess what might happen, but if Microchip buys Atmel's MPU business, what is the prognosis for the PIC32. I bought some PIC32 tools and invested time learning the family, and now it may go away or new variant design activity may stop. This is because Atmel has a popular ARM based family of MPUs and the MIPS based PIC32 has only been out a year. Freescale...

I have a project to do with an embedded processor where i would like to hang a "thumb drive" on the USB port of one of Microchip's PIC devices. The idea is that the thumb drive is used for data storage which a user can remove from my product, plug into his desktop/laptop, and retrieve the data. The PIC device embedded in my product would need to be a host for the thumb drive. I se...

Learning some embedded C using Microchip's C18 Lite. I tried the following and it misbehaved: if( 10 < my_variable < 20 ) { //do this......} Using the following works: if (( x > 10) & ( x < 20)) { //do this.....} Is it normal that C cannot handle complexities such as "a < b < c" ? I would have thought a compiler could easily work out what was intended. Thanks.
