  1. Hi, Im am struggling to compiler the source code in MPlab 8.87 using Hi-Tech C compiler 9.8. What compiler was the original code compiled with? Thanks

  3. crystal frequency is 20Mhz as mentioned in the schematic it self

    1. i don't have any sch or brd file. why do you need that its just simple circuit i have assembled it on a bread board. you can do it on general purpose PCB.

    1. I have just discovered this site and I am interested in PIC18F4550. I have been teaching PIC 16F84 Assembly and now like to develop a couple of projects based on PIC18F4550.

      Please post details related to PIC 16F4550(Crystal 20MHz) connect to (16x2}LCD with USB. I am confident that you would certainly post a positive reply. Your expert advise / guidance in regard would be appreciated.

  7. Hello, at first, thank you for nice inspiration, nice work:) Please, I am learning how to work with 18f2550 now. I think I can make .hex file, I also think I can make some aplication in VB. Now i decided to do the next step and make some circuit to connect through USB. I want to make aplication for measuring Voltage on 6 inputs. I want to make it with my own code, and i dont understand where you get the driver. Please can you tell me how to make it? Thank you very much!

    1. the firmware in this project implements HID class USB device so it doesn't need any drivers . HID USB devices are driver less .

    2. thank you for your answer. But what is actally installing?

  8. Hello, me again:) Please, can you describe me how the voltage measuring works in your application? I want to have small application to measure only voltage, but i cannot cut off the part with digital input output. I am trying to cut it "softly", but every time after building the application the analog part doesnt work. It would help me a lot, thank you for your cooperation..

  9. hi, I am new to pic and tried your circuit for learning purposes. I am having trouble with my computer recognizing USB device. I am not sure what I might be doing wrong. I have loaded PIC18F USB IO board.hex using pickit2 programmer. I have checked the schematic several times to make sure it is correct. Would you have any suggestion as to what I should check? My computer is using Windows7 with 64 bit as OS. Thank you

  10. Never mind. I got it working. I must have checked the circuit 10 times before finding missing pin between Vusb and .47uF cap. Thanks for the code and circuit.

  11. Hi Gaurav,

    You have mentioned that you have used the HID framework for this project. I hope you might have used the sample source code from microchip for CCS compiler and have edited. I believe the code had the HID framework. Can you tell me which are the functions you have altered in the code so that I would try the same.

    Thanks,
    Ash Indiano

  12. i am afraid this demonstration does not use sample provided by Microchip. in fact Microchip does not provide USB demonstrations with CCS compilers they mainly use C18 compiler , now C18 is also off the self , now they moved to XC8. although XC8 have tremendous bugs. but good thing is that this implementation does use Microchip USB stack by Microchip Technology.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I am Sorry i meant to say C18 compiler.. in that case can you help me with the functions you have altered or made use of from the USB stack

  14. Gaurav few questions I had. What is the baud rate set to ? Which file sets that. Is there a way to extract the raw data in computer which comes as digital bits ?

    ReplyDelete
  15. there is no RS232 Communication involved so there no need to set any baud rate. it USB.

    yep you can see raw data in please take a look in the pc software source code you will find it there.

  16. Guys, i didn't find the pic source. Where is it? Because i'd like to see how you did it. Thank you!

  19. Dear Gaurav,
    This is very good project. I need some help from you. I need some API and DLL files to communicate this USBIO device through labview. Could you please share some DLL files. I would like to control this device through Ni LabVIEW. Please help me. I'm looking forward your reply.

    Thanks

  24. Hi

    I just fused the hex code to the chip.
    The led is ON.
    I connected it as mentioned but no response from the Host (PC).
    I double checked the connections and the components, everything is connected well.
    I don't know What's the problem.

  25. Dear Mr. Chaudhary, I have build the circuit carefully and got the chip programmed with the hex file but I am always getting (USB Device Not Recognized) message !.. I have checked the circuit, pin connections several times and sure of my work except for the XTAL frequency is (22.0 MHz).. Do you think that is the reason? Your reply is highly appreciated..Thank you.

    1. crystal frequency need to be 20 Mhz , there is no substitute , unless you modify software for PLL.

      Delete
    2. Dear Mr. Chaudhary, thank you very much for your prompt reply. At last I found a 20.000 MHz XTAL and replaced it in the circuit but unfortunately still getting the same (device not recognized) message! .. What else could be the reason..please? taking in mind that my operating system is Windows XP - SP3. I can send you clear pictures of my work if you don't mind.. Thank you again for your cooperation.

  26. Thank you Mr. Chaudhary, now it it fully working, the problem was in xtal capacitors 33pf.

  27. Dear Mr. Chaudhary,

    Thank you for your great work, I work on your source files to develop my own application and I found a little bug : when I launch the IO_board, I connot write anything in the textbox of the PORTD.

    I fixed it by add this event : "me.activated" in the sub "portbAsInp_CheckedChanged" to initilialise the board with the correct parameters.

  28. Dear Gaurav,

    Could you please share the API and DLL files to communicate this USBIO device through labview, since I would like to control this device through Ni LabVIEW. Please help me.

  29. Dear Gaurav,

    Atleast let us know the commands to read and write the data from or to individual ports or pins of the port to communicate the IO board from LABVIEW. Your help will be acknowledged. Kindly help me.

    With regards,

    Dr. Jeyadheepan K.M
