DESCRIPTION

I've made this program because I needed an easy to use, easy to configure and easy to extend full featured PIC (and most of the serially programmed device) programming software.

Easy to extend beacuse it's based on:

  • the Mark Aiken's Odyssey - PIC Programming software, a well written, documented and structured C++ program/library, used as programming engine.

    Really flP5 uses an enhanched version of Odyssey, I've added the support for the 3 voltages 'production' programmers and made some little changes to the library to best fit with the GUI toolkit.

    This library implementes the parallel port access and the devices programming algorithms. It's almost the 90% of the whole flP5 program.

  • the FLTK 1.1.3 or later - The Fast Light Tool Kit, it's a multiplatform (*nix, MacOS, OS/2, Windows) C++ GUI toolkit, it comes with its own interface designer, a lot of examples, a very good documentation and it's very very easy to use.

Easy to configure because all the settings are easily accessible and full documented by the extensive use of tooltips.

Easy to use tanks to the user friendly interface, the use of few self explaining icons and the extensive use of tooltips.

FEATURES
  • Can support all the parallel port programmers supported by Odyssey, plus the 3 voltages production PIC programmers (on parallel port), as specified by Microchips.

    New programmers can be easily configured on the fly.

  • Can support all the PIC devices supported by Odyssey, here's a summary:

    DS30228J - PIC16C6XX/7XX/9XX
    DS30262C - PIC16F8X
    DS30324B - PIC16F7X
    DS39025F - PIC16F87X

    DS39592D - PIC18F1220, 1320, 2220, 2320, 4220, 4320

  • As Mark Aikens says, thank to his Odyssey - PIC programming software:

    This program has the potential to program any serially programmed device and I would like to be able to program any PIC in existence (under Linux of course).” ...

    ... and now, even under Windows.

USAGE

The interface is subdivided into two areas: the Operative area on the left and the Configuration area, on the right.

From the Operative area you can:

chose the device to work on.

load an hex file into the memory buffer to write into or compare to the device memory.

write the content of the memory buffer into an hex file.

Device oriented buttons

load the content of the device memory into the memory buffer.

erase the content of the device memory.

erase the content of the device memory.

perform a blank check of the device memory.

load the content of the memory buffer into the device memory.

verify the content of the device memory compared to the memory buffer.

switch on/off the Vdd line to enter in the On Circuit Test Mode. In this mode the programmer can be used as power source for the circuit in development.

put the Vpp line to GND to reset the micro controller. This control simulates the hardware reset.


view the content of the memory buffer either in hexadecimal format or in disassembled format, depending on the chosen device.

When you choose one of the device oriented buttons for the first time or after changed the device or the programmer, the programmer calibration procedure will be automatically executed.

The Programmer Calibration Procedure consists on a wizard showing the optimal values for the Vpp and Vdd voltages, if your programmer allows you to trim the Vpp and Vdd values then you need a DMM to attach to the ICSP Vpp and ICSP Vdd connections.

    Start of the calibration procedure, clicking on Cancel will terminate the selected operation, while Skip, when active, allows you to skip the calibration procedure ...

    ... measure the Vpp VIHH value, it must be in the range shown. If you aren't using a production programer the next step will be Vdd programming ...

    ... measure the Vdd maximum value, it must match the value shown ...

    ... measure the Vdd programming value, it must be in the shown range. If you aren't using a production programer this is the last measure you have to do ...

    ... measure the Vdd minimum value, it must match the shown value ...

    ... you are done, now can start the selected operation.

From the Configuration area you can:

load the devices/programmers configuration from a file. The changes between the current and the new configuration, for each device or programmer loaded, will be shown by the following panel:



create a new device/programmer configuration entry.

edit the configuration for the chosen device/programmer.

duplicate the configuration of the chosen device/programmer.

store the configuration changes into the program memory.

revert the configuration changes or delete the device/programmer configuration from the program memory.

The Configuration area is furthermore subdivided into Device Config. and Programmer Config. tabs.

Device Config. tab - General settings

Device Config. tab - Config. Words settings

Here you can:

add

modify

duplicate

store

and remove

the device configuration words which are listed in the list placed on the left of the Config. Words toolbar, here you can select the word to edit and change the bitmask of the various fields from the above texts.

Device Config. tab - Misc. settings

Devices marked as Experimental have never been programmed with this software by anyone. When you succesfully program a device with this software you can toggle off the Experimental mark.

In the list of devices the experimental ones are written in blue, otherwise are written in black.

Programmer Config. tab.

Here you can:

  • edit the programmer name.

  • configure the pin for the connection of the programmer to the parallel port. If more than one connections have the same Pin #, those connections are marked with a yellow background.

  • specify the signals configuration to obtain the Vdd min/max/programming values for the 3 voltages production programming.

  • specify the signals configuration to put Vpp to GND.

  • specify wether Vdd can be switched OFF before switching OFF Vpp.

From the main menu you can also set the parallel port the programmer is connected to and, under Linux, if possible, the access method to the parallel port, either direct or via a user mode device.

TODO
Make more tests
Add support for other vendor/family devices (AVR, Scenix, ...)
Use MinGW/DevC++ instead of Visual C/C++ to build the Windows executable
