28 pin DIP 32MX Chip

RE: 28 pin DIP 32MX Chip
I found PICs to be very easy if you used a PICkit. Everything from Microchip seemed to assume you would do that and then it was trivially easy.

I did that and it was.

But I wanted to NOT use Windows so.... it was my choice to find other ways lol

The Pinguino is about as easy as the Microchip+PICkit way, even from Linux. Plug in, reprogram, done. Easy.

No idea on this new Microstick thing. When you get it, do tell Smile

RE: 28 pin DIP 32MX Chip
Ok, Just got here and was as i thought- Does have a programmer on board by USB... Now, what id like to ask is... Can i program the bootloader there from here ?!? Your opinion ?!?
One of Pinguinos developers asked me if it had the USB conected to the D+ D- and it does( has a switch , and i guess must be so it covers both different type of chips).

PS- By the way, i just tried the Test Example led, with increase of how fast increases the blinking and took me at least 2 hours to understand it, no serious explanations online, only some videos and by the 40th minute all id got was the type of architecture and how the MPLab works , etc...
BUT, after i decided to look at it slowly( IDE i mean) and by intuition i got there eventually. But is definitely not user friendly at all !! Plus debugger im still trying to find how it works... Thats hwy PINGUINO has to be a good thing !! It will definitely bring more and more people to PICS power !
Shame DIP chips wont reach the 80MHz

*PS- After researching it seems i can at least program the bootloader into it. Though i aint sure if i can use the Microstick to use it as im not sure what kind of Xtal uses...Not sure if this makes sense, but then again i dont know the type of architecture of PICS at all, so im just guessing here). MPlab does accept importing of HEX files, so seems ill be laughing all the way out on this ! Then the building a board is easy peasy for me anyway !! Ill keep sharing for now anything that might help others in future !!

Hi,
I am pretty sure (say 99,9%) that you can burn the HID bootloader (the pinguino one) into a PIC32 you have plugged in the intended socket (lets call this PIC "the target", while the board is "the host", if it's easier to understand). Then you will just have to put this programmed PIC into the small pinguino32 board, and test& enjoy Big Grin !!
But again, i am also pretty sure that you can not burn the HID bootloader into the microstick (or at least i will not do that myself, avoiding to "brick" the microstick board).
I agree with pingotg, using pickit is really easy and straightforward.(Actually is use a pickit clone to burn the bootloader into the pic18f2550, which i later put on the pinguino board ;-) )
But for sure, the pinguino stuff (IDE and language) is a bit easier to understand, for the "software side" (at least interrupts and ports access are easy to use )

RE: 28 pin DIP 32MX Chip
Hello
I have downloaded and unzipped the PK2DeviceFile_rev2.zip renamed. and even if it does not work.
the pic is pic32mx250f128b
is right connect
MCLR to pin1
vdd to pin 13
gnd to pin 8 and 19
pgd to pin 3
pgc to pin 4
?
working with windows, you can say that I do wrong?

Thank you!

RE: 28 pin DIP 32MX Chip
Do you also have the other components Microchip data sheet(s) say you must have?

What errors do you get?

RE: 28 pin DIP 32MX Chip
Hello my good programmer is this.http://www.piccircuit.com/shop/pic-programmer/55-icp02-usb-pic-programmer.html

pickit program is 2.61 and devicefile I tested this thread

the error I get is this
pickit 2 vpp voltage level error.
check target & retry operation
Thank you!

RE: 28 pin DIP 32MX Chip
The maker's page for the icp02 states:

Code:
Used for programming up to 260+ type of popular Flash PIC MCU, includes PIC10F, PIC12F, PIC16F, PIC18F, PIC24F, dsPIC30 and dsPIC33 family

I don't see any mention of any PIC32MX families.

RE: 28 pin DIP 32MX Chip
Well mine automatically changes the voltage, when I put the pic32mx250 tells me is 2.5 v 2.7 v ever in pickit2.2

I thought I had a clone of pickit2. :-(
If a clone of pickit2 amount Podre doing what you say in this forum pic32mx250 schedule?

thanks

RE: 28 pin DIP 32MX Chip
If it is really a PICkit2 clone, then the third party pic32prog software should work. See http://pic32prog.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/

RE: 28 pin DIP 32MX Chip
It doesn't say it's a pickit2 clone, does it?

I bought a pickit3 (yes, 3) clone and they're quite cheap so I suggest to just get one.
