Eblocks1

Post by SDI »

Hi, I am new to the Matrix IDE system but used the support to gain insight to how to setup and run flowcode (we have v7) and a PIC16F1937 IDE board with EBlocks 1 combo board, however I cant find support to know how to use the prototype block so to set up circuits for example thermistor inputs or buzzer outputs.

Any one point me in the right direction please?

Sorry, Flowcode 7 is no longer supported.
Have you thought of up grading to Flowcode v10?
Some popular target devices and all the components are now free with no code or user call macros limitations.
You will need to register via here
There is no longer a 30 day trial as its not required.

The resource tab of this page has the datasheet for the prototype E-Block. All it does is expose the pins of 2 of the connected microcontroller ports.

Also, the original E-Blocks are compatible with v10 of Flowcode.

In addition, our Introduction to Microcontrollers course might be useful to you. It is written around our newer software and hardware, but many of the concepts are relevant to your setup. Here's a direct link:
