USB Bit Whacker and MAC computer ..

Post by jlg_47 » Thu Jan 29, 2015 1:58 pm

Hi,

A freund of mine would like to work with a USB Bit Whacker - 18F2553 on a MAC computer ...

Myself I know quite well the USB Bit Whacker, but I work with a PC and have no problem, but I never touched a MAC :o

My question is to know if there is an equivalent of PDFSUSB.exe to download a new *.hex from a MAC computer .. I cannot find anything about this subject or I am not good enough to find.

I hope the MPLAB and C compilers should give no problem.

Thanks in advance.

I don't know the answer for a PDFSUSB.exe equivalent for Mac, but the rest of the MPLABX IDE and the C compilers work fine on my Mac mini.

Thanks for this answer, this is already something good to know.

The problem is that I would like to make a *.hex file for a USB Bit Whacker and send it to my friend in such a way he can load it using the bootloader of the USB Bit Wacker, but my friend uses a Mac computer.

Then my question is : "Can we use on a Mac computer the bootloader of the USB Bit Whacker to load an *.hex file ?"
