Re: CREATE 30 PIC MICROCONTROLLER PROJECTS WITH FLOWCODE 6 BOOK

Hello

Elektor no longer list this book, after a quick google search i found one on amazon and a few other sites. Some where stupid prices
Elektor also listed a Ebook, but clicking on the link i got a 502 error - maybe worthwhile contacting them to see if it still available

Re: Interfacing the Pic16F877A with the MCP3201 12-Bit ADC.

Hi Abhi the MCP3201 is an analogue to digital convertor that measurer's DC Voltages. Are you looking to read the 4 - 20 mA current ? in this case you will need to convert the current to a voltage first. you have asked this question in Flowcode V2 & V3 forums when you are active in the V8 forums is t...

This is an interesting post

A few colleagues at work have invested in some 49" dell ultra wide monitors they are having similar issues with various software's.

Re: (re)programming a PIC over USB

Hi Lariekoek, something else you can look at to get a bit more from your battery. A DCDC Setup convertor this has a minimum voltage of 1.5 V Be Sure to check that if you use this you don't go bellow the minimum recommended volts per cell for your battery see Example 8.2.1 & 2 on page 10 https://uk.r...

Hi Lariekoek, But that may be because I'm testing with Li-Ion battery's that are over 8yrs old. Not sure what batteries you are using, but some of the flange pack items that RS sell have a shelf life of 6 Months before requiring a recharge. They also have a 2 - 3 year life or 500 cycles which occurs...
