Re: UECIDE's window is garbled.

Or it could be something else installed on your computer that's interfering with things. Maybe some malware.

Re: UECIDE's window is garbled.

That kind of mess most often happens when Java has crashed. Make sure you are on the latest Java version and UECIDE version. The failure to delete issue is a known problem that I am working on. Windows has a hard time deleting files if they happen to be locked, and Java doesn't like releasing locks ...

Re: Breadboardable PIC32MZ?

Yes - all you should need is here: https://github.com/majenkotech/MZBoot You will need to craft yourself a board that uses the provided linker scripts (both the board-level and "common" one). An updated pic32prog is here: https://github.com/majenkotech/pic32prog-autotools There is no "prog" button a...

Re: Breadboardable PIC32MZ?

It's integrated into UECIDE, but the Arduino IDE may need a new tool creating for it. Yes, it uses pic32prog. It's also compiled from within UECIDE just like any sketch - you just need a special bootloader variant of the board that uses the right linker scripts - and making those linker scripts was ...

Re: Breadboardable PIC32MZ?

Here's one of my projects that uses it. It's the most basic one - just the power circuit and some connectors. https://github.com/MajenkoProjects/LIBus/tree/master/PowerInjector As you can see it's a really really simple module to work with. Really easy to solder as well. I never get any issues with ...

Re: Breadboardable PIC32MZ?

Please do. All my designs are in gEDA though, and my own custom version, so you won't be able to open them. I'll see if I can make a PDF of one of them, and maybe some gerbers or at least images to show the layout. If you want to update your SDZ that'll mean I don't have to do my SDZL, which would b...

Re: Breadboardable PIC32MZ?

If / when I do design something like that it'd be based on the Fubrino SD. I did make one once, which I called the SDZL, with the exact same dimensions (though some slight differences to the pin orders IIRC), which would go in a breadboard just fine. I should dig out those old designs and update the...

Re: Breadboardable PIC32MZ?

I have something in the works that isn't actually breadboardable, but is small. It's a PIC32MZ2048EFG064 on a PCB with power circuitry, audio DAC and power amplifier. It has 6 GPIO connectors and a 6 pin boxed header for UART communication with other boards. It's designed as a specific product for a...

Re: Configuring Fubarino Mini Serial Comms to 7O1

The PIC32 UART hardware doesn't natively support 7O1 communications. That's not to say it's not possible though - you just need to do it manually. 7O1 is 8 bits of data where one of them is odd parity. So you can use 8N1 communication and manually set the 8th bit to be the correct parity. A bit of a...
