Re: Help with chinese development board

LVP is something you don't need to worry about unless you have a specific use case for it.

About your PICkit-2 and IPE. This is another case of the answer being right in front of you if you read the literature. The PICkit-2 is not listed as a supported programmer in the IPE user manual.

Re: Help with chinese development board

I already told you how to do it. Open up the datasheet and map the pins like I said.

Re: Help with chinese development board

The board that you just bought is not an ICD2. It is nothing more than an adapter board designed to make programming multiples of the same part a little faster. The board itself doesn't actually do anything. It is up to you to route the signals to the correct pins for the device you're programming. ...

Re: Help with chinese development board

So I found the board on AliExpress and from the pictures they have, it looks like a 1:1 connection between the socket and the headers next to it. You will need to use the included jumper wires to bring power and the programming signals to the correct pins for the PIC you are using. The crystal oscil...

Re: Help with chinese development board

I can see that picture but unfortunately there still isn't enough information to say exactly what's going on. It looks like an adapter board for programming PICs that can be reconfigured depending on the size package you are using. For 40-pin PICs, some of the jumpers line up with important pins (MC...

Re: Help with chinese development board

Your image link is not working. Please fix that and try to provide as much information as you can about the board so we can help you.

Re: Analog to arduino to op amp to arduino?

All, This will be my last post here, and the admin can delete it so as to protect the sensitive, but I will have my say before this eventuality. I have been working with electronics since before most of you were born, so the high horse crap is both disgusting and unjustified. My self admitted illit...

Re: PWM WITH PIC32MX460F512L

Another thing I noticed is your prescaler setting for Timer2 is actually 1:2, not 1:8 like you are expecting. If you were using Timer1, your TCKPS bits would be correct but for Timer2 TCKPS needs to be 0b011 for a 1:8 prescaler. Right now your PWM frequency would be 40KHz. When you say your PWM is n...

Re: PWM WITH PIC32MX460F512L

Nevermind. I found the section in the family reference manual that says the compare module overrides the TRIS register. I'll keep digging when I free up some time.

Re: PWM WITH PIC32MX460F512L

Off the top of my head, I dont remember if the output compare peripheral overrides the pin direction settings but you may want to try changing your OC1 pin to an output and see if that makes a difference.

Re: IPC Certification for PCB Designer???

In my facility, we deal primarily with equipment destined to be used by the military. We occasionally design circuit boards but none of us on the engineering side of the equation are IPC certified. On our production side of the building, they are required to be IPC certified for soldering, board ass...
