Is there a good way to send what I am doing and what I see happening when trying to program the eeprom. I have looked at the setting in the project properties and that does not fix the issue for me. I have tried talking to Microchip and didn't get much of an answer.
That is a function of the programmer. MPLAB X provides the same functionality as MPLAB as to the control of the programmer and the memory areas it affects. The EEPROM and other memory areas are controlled from the project's Properties menu selection.
I don't think any code will be "stabilized" on product maturity. That's probably why Microchip archives the MLA packages. The advent of the XC compiler family, the PIC32MZ and Harmony are good indicators of where Microchip is going.
I tried using MPLABX but was unable to duplicate some of the functionality from the MPLAB8.x I was wonderin if you might know how to not only compile/ build and load a program but also load the eeprom. The products I work on use the eeprom and it was not clear how to load everything at the same time for debugging or even release programing using MPLABX. Any insite would be welcome.
What was frusturating in the past was getting the programs written with graphics library v1.4 and then v1.52 coming along and then not long after that v1.60 and each time a new library zip folder was downloaded we had to hope and pray the project would still compile and there were many times it would not.
Can you speak on any of the library file compatibilities with the MPLAB X compiler? Are the files remaining mostly unchanged due to the maturing of the products?
@Fred.. and also is there a separate USB library that must be used in MPLAB X versus the version used in MPLAB v8.70.
We were disappointed previously with Microchips library file releases when the MPLAB versions had changed from lower versions. Could not get PIC32 to compile using previous library files on new MPLAB versions, so we had to port everything to use there new libraries and eventually wrote our own.
@Fred : ever usedf the (new ?) PIC24FJ128GC010 before ?
In addition to Microchip's first 16-bit ADC and a 10 Msps 12-bit ADC, the PIC24FJ128GC010 integrates a DAC and dual op amps to simplify precision analog design. The on-chip LCD driver provides the ability to drive displays with up to 472 segments for information-rich user displays; whilst mTouchTM capacitive touch sensing adds advanced touch capabilities.
Fred, do you know off the top of your head if Microchip plans to extend the Configurator to other micro parts? I can't find anything about "future" features on the Microchip site so it looks like it only works for a handful of PIC12 and PIC16 parts. I have to confess I only read the site page and release notes, not the user guide.
dhajicek: I find it really helps to go back over the lecture after it's archived; that way, you can just back up a little bit by clicking on the sound bar before the progress point and listen to Fred's comments as many times as you need to...
Hi all -Audio is live! If you don't see the audio bar at the top of the screen, please refresh your browser. It may take a couple tries. When you see the audio bar, if it doesn't start automatically, hit the play button. If you experience audio interruptions and are using IE, try using FF or Chrome as your browser. Many people experience issues with IE. Also, make sure your flash player is updated with the current version. Some companies block live audio streams, so if that is the case for your company, the class will be archived on this page immediately following the class and you can listen then. People don't experience any issues with the audio for the archived version.
A little thicker than a standard audio cassette but slightly smaller. I seem to recall that somebody gave me a parallel-port version some years back. Now I have to remember where in the dungeon I put it! I'm not even sure that WinXP or 7 will recognize it. I guess I'll have to build an old DOS box and hack together a network driver or use sneaker net! :-) I know where the tapes are.
I figured that to be the case! :-) I sometimes wished that I was able to save my designs/code from back in the day. Didn't have a CD burner back then and the floppies that I had used degraded enough over time that I didn't try to salvage. If only I can find a working Colorado 120 - I had archived several projects to DC2120 tapes!
Hi Fred! I was going through a few boxes of magazines and found a few issues of Computer Craft/MicroComputer Journal and was thumbing through and found an article in Jan/Feb94 with your name on it! It was the "Time Master" using an 8749, DS1287 and DS1275. I had an application for such a timer back in the day and wanted to build it, but couldn't d/l the code for the uProc - plus I couldn't afford a programmer or even the pre-programmed 8749 at the time. I recall that I wanted to make a sail-racing timer for when my friends and I would race. I don't suppose that you still have the code lying around. :-) I enjoyed the article!
-The streaming audio player will appear at the top of this web page when the show starts at 2 PM Eastern time today. When you see it, click on the play button to start the audio. Note however, that some companies block live audio streams. If when the show starts, the audio bar doesn't appear or you don't hear any audio, try refreshing your browser. If that doesn't work, try using Firefox or Google Chrome as your browser. Some users experience audio interruptions with IE. Also, make sure your flash player is updated with the current version. If that doesn't work, the class will be archived immediately following our live taping. You shouldn't experience any problems with the audio when listening on-demand.
-You are eligible to earn IEEE Professional Development Hours by attending these courses and participating in the chat function. Additionally, we are no longer using the points system, offering "graduation", or giving grades. The IEEE hours are taking the place of that. There are some important things for you to know about earning the hours. The most important ones are that you need to attend these courses live, you need to attend a minimum of two of them per semester, you need to fill out a course evaluation form within 2 weeks of the end of the class, you need to attend 4 out of the 5 classes per course, and you need to participate in the chat function every day you attend. Please click on the link at the top of this page that says "How do I earn IEEE professional development hours" to read all of these important details and more.

I brought the PIC32 Ethernet Starter kit. I got the demo working (push buttons ans display on PC) but I'm not sure what is in volved to create my own web page, and controls to display. I looked at the code and it is confusing to what is enabled (#define) or not. I think if i had some guidance on how to create my own web page, in the chip, (instead of http://mchpboard).
The first Tacoma Narrows Bridge was a Washington State suspension bridge that opened in 1940 and spanned the Tacoma Narrows strait of Puget Sound between Tacoma and the Kitsap Peninsula. It opened to traffic on July 1, 1940, and dramatically collapsed into Puget Sound on November 7, just four months after it opened.
Noting that we now live in an era of “confusion and ill-conceived stuff,” Ammunition design studio founder Robert Brunner, speaking at Gigaom Roadmap, said that by adding connectivity to everything and its mother, we aren't necessarily doing ourselves any favors, with many ‘things’ just fine in their unconnected state.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
