I have updates for you!

First, the changes to the 10F entries that I had previously posted DO WORK contrary to what was posted previously by two persons other than myself. I have now tested this myself  as my parts arrived a few days ago.

Want to program the 10Fxxx parts? You can do it right now with the attached chipinfo file!

I have added the 12F508, 509 and 16F505 too. These all work.

Also added and supported right now are the 18Fxx31 family. Someone was asking so I've added them. These do not require any firmware update. Just the new chipinfo file.

The 18F2550, 4550 USB parts. Yep, got them working too. These require a firmware update and I have patched firmware for the K149 and K150. (Not yet for the other progs. )

Also in this boat are the 18F2x20, 4x20, 2x80, 4x80 and others.

Check 'em out

• PIC18F2321 • PIC18F2421
• PIC18F4321 • PIC18F4421
• PIC18F2410 • PIC18F4410
• PIC18F2420 • PIC18F4420
• PIC18F2455 • PIC18F4455
• PIC18F2480 • PIC18F4480
• PIC18F2510 • PIC18F4510
• PIC18F2515 • PIC18F4515
• PIC18F2520 • PIC18F4520
• PIC18F2525 • PIC18F4525
• PIC18F2550 • PIC18F4550
• PIC18F2580 • PIC18F4580
• PIC18F2585 • PIC18F4585
• PIC18F2610 • PIC18F4610
• PIC18F2620 • PIC18F4620
• PIC18F2680 • PIC18F4680

The patch is also good for other 18Fxxx parts. In fact I believe all of them are now supported by the patched firmware.

This patch firmware has been tested by Dave Kerr who also contributed to the addition of some 18Fxxx parts.

I am currently looking at the 12F and 16F parts to see what is not currently supported and what can be added. I may again have to patch the firmware but I have cleared some room inside the 16F628.

Important Notes.

Please understand that my updates apply only to the firmware, not to MicroPro. Just because a device is theorically supported by the firmware, it does not mean that MicroPro will either fully or correctly support it. MicroPro only allows 34 different config word types and there are few PICs that exceed this.

MicroPro is not the greatest piece of software in the world and I do feel that it needs to be replaced in the medium to long term.

Ok, this is enough typing for me in one hit. More later.

Sorry, I'am italian so I apologize for my english.

Could I have the attached chipinfo file cause I can't find it.
I have problems programming the PIC18F2420 by the MicroPro software and the DIY K149-BC programmer.
The error occurred is:

ROM error at 0x0002
Good 0xEF68
Bad 0xEF48

I also have an PIC12F683 and no problems programming it.
To make the software recognize the PIC18F2420 I changed manually the chipinfo file, but maybe made some error.

My email is: musardo@interfree.it

Thanks for your help.
Andrea.

Andrea,

Upgrade to DIYpack25EP. This will automatically give you the chipinfo file you need plus fix a few bugs in the earlier firmware.

Hi Frank, I am Andrea and I give you my thanks for your last help about the DIY programmer BC-149.

Now I need you again to solve another problem occurred.
It is the following.

I recently bought a PIC18F2450 to experience its USB capability but, even if it is included in the PicPro+ chip list, I have the following error:

ROM error at 0x0090
Good 0xFFFF
Bad 0xEF15

I confirm to have already upgraded to DIYpack25EP, in fact, the PicPro+, is working with the P018 protocol.

I also changed the ProgramDelay parameter inside the "MICRODAT.CID" file with no results.

Do you have any idea???

Thanks in advance.

Andrea.

Hi Jim or whoever,

Have you managed to compile the original source code for the MicroPro programmer software, if you haven't, I like to offer help.
I'm no Delphi expert, maybe a gifted amateur; I can't see a great problem in upgrading the source to a working Delphi 2007/10 version.
I have a K150 and a K149C so I have a reason to keep the MicroPro up to date.

If your interested email me, I'll let you know more about myself.

Dave

The problem is that we are missing the 'I/O' driver file and we don't even know which one was used.

Hi Frank, couldn't we use a generic COM driver simulating the USB port???
I tried to do it using MS HyperTerminal following the protocol.txt instructions, with positive results.
I would be interested to have the MicroPro sources too at this point, if it is possible.
I professionally programmed in C++ for over 4 years so I believe to understand also Delphi sources without great problems.
I also offer to port the entire application in C++.
If you are interested email me and we can find an agreement.

Not up to me to distribute - best to ask Dave directly.

Hi Dave or whoever own those, could I have the MicroPro application sources to try to solve the flashing problems with my PIC18F2450???
If you have those...
I promise not to distribute it, unless to the proper owners.

Thanks

Hi Andrea

I do not have the MicroPro application sources, I just gave info on what I believe is the missing file (Delphi component) and how I would go about fixing it.

Sorry but I may have misunderstood what you asked.

I cannot give out the application source code until I have discussed this with the DIY owner.
