Donez invitatii pe CzTeam (stoc nou 15.03.2017)

March 15th, 2017 17 comments

Asa cum scrie si-n titlu: Donez invitatii pe trackerul romanesc CzTeam, in limita stocului disponibil. Pentru a primi o invitatie am nevoie de adresa de email postata in comentariu. Adresa voastra de email nu o sa fie publica si nu o sa primiti mesaje nesolicitate din partea acestui blog..
De aceasta data regula nu este “primul venit, primul servit” ci “primul raspuns corect este si primul servit“. Ce raspuns corect? Raspunsul la intrebarea: Ce este raţia (ratio)? (nu ma refer la rația de mancare)

PICkit 2 Device Data File Editor

February 15th, 2013 No comments

PICkit 2 Device Data File Editor

This program provides a simple interface for editing the device data file PKDeviceFile.dat that comes with the PICkit2 windows programs.
pk2devicefileeditor

Usage:

File Menu:

Open – loads and decodes file
Save – overwrites the loaded file with the data in memory
Save As – writes the data in memory to a file of your choosing

Right click on any leaf node (in the left treeview panel) for a popup menu to:

Duplicate – make an identical copy of the selected family/part/script
Remove – delete the selected family/part/script

Number formats:

– where a field is displayed as hex (dec), you can enter
Hex: e.g. 0xfa44 or &hfa44 or fa44h
Binary: e.g. 0b11110010 or %11110010
Decimal: e.g. 1443

– where a field is displayed as decimal, you can enter
Hex: e.g. 0xfa44 or &hfa44
Decimal: e.g. 1443

The program is generally only useful for adding new parts not currently supported by the devicefile bundled with the PICKit 2. The process, after opening the devicefile, is simply to choose an existing PIC from the list of devices, right click on it and select Duplicate Item. There will now be a copy of the part you selected. Change the properties of the new part, including the part name, to appropriate values for the new part. Then save the file and you’re done.
It’s possible to find the appropriate fields from the datasheet and programming specification documents for the particular PIC part. Sometimes it’s a little bit hard to find what you’re looking for, or to even know what you should be looking for; feel free to ask on the Microchip Forums (in particular under this thread: PK2 Device File Editor Thread); there’s some very knowledgeable and experienced members there.
There is sometimes updates devicefiles available from Microchip (maybe search the Microchip forums).
