Re: Pic 16 F 1939 program starts to hang.

Hi Benj Thanks for all the info. Now I am getting a bit more understanding and I am busy changing the code. Works great so far. However I ran into problems without getting any warning in the "Building CASM file" Just one more question. The MOD function is a no no in interrupt macros. And others macr...

Re: Pic 16 F 1939 program starts to hang.

Hi Benj. So basically it would be best to be safe would be to just use the + and minus in a timer interrupt and do the rest of the calculation all in the main program. Will it also help to use a different variable outside the interrupt. For example you have the variable "Minutes" in the interrupt. T...

Re: Pic 16 F 1939 program starts to hang.

Hi
I do not understand fully.
If I use the plus function like (+) In an interrupt I must not use the plus function at all in the main macro?
Or I must not use the plus function for the same variable? Etc.

Re: Pic 16 F 1939 program starts to hang.

Hi
Thanks for the info.
So I just learned that you should not use the division function within the timer interrupt.
Could you please point me to some more info what functions I should not use in timer interrupt?
Is division function anything like this (hours=minutes/60) etc.

Re: Pic 16 F 1939 program starts to hang.

Hi Thanks for the modified code. You basically put all the calculations back into the Timer macro. Except the (dislpay=0) And then it all works fine. Also I would not want to split the Hour an tenth. Because I want to use that number to calculate average amp usage in real time. Now I am trying to fi...

I don't think Watchdogtimer is resetting, numbers like temperature and other numbers like other counters are not affected.

Hi Benj. I found some code of concern. Attached is the code of concern. This code is about a timer in Hours with two decimals.

Re: Using alternate pins for PWM on Pic16F1825

Hi Benj. Thanks for the answer. I understand your Idea this will work for changing colour, but how would you turn OFF both LED's at the same time? Ok I see the option set duty cycle 10 Bit But the Periosdregister still can have a maximum count of 255 which according to my knowledge is still eight bi...

Re: Using alternate pins for PWM on Pic16F1825

Hi what I actually was thinking of is Half bridge mode. I guess this will not work because both pins will have the same duty cycle, so probably it will be best to stick to the Software Pwm in the Code a posted in the beginning. I have another question. How do change the PWM to 10 bit mode? The data ...

Re: Using alternate pins for PWM on Pic16F1825

Hi Kernix What I actually want is to change color not brightness. So I alternate between read and green very fast at least 200 Hz and changing the duty cycle to have the color I want. If Red is 90% then green is 10% If red is 50% green is 50% etc. If red is on green is off if green is on red is off....

Re: Using alternate pins for PWM on Pic16F1825

Hi Kernix Thanks for your answer. So I was certain this PWM was working. The fault was on hardware. One of the vias was not connected, and therefore the Pic16F1825 did not have a proper ground. So when the input to the ADC was 0 Volt it must have gotten ground through the ADC. Since I fixed this Via...

Re: Different variable types in calculation?

Hi Benj
Thanks for the Info.
What I have noticed is that some calculations gave a return of 0 instead of the right result.
"A=(b*c)/d"

After I broke the calculation down into smaller ones

"A=b*c
A=a/d"

it works fine.
