18F252 and CCS RS-232 problem?
PostPosted: Thu Feb 06, 2003 9:08 pm     Reply with quote

I couldn't find this problem when searching the archive... so I thought I would ask.

Using version 3.141. New to the 18F series pics...
[snip]
#include <18F252.h>
#use delay(clock=4000000)
#use rs232(baud=4800,parity=N,xmit=PIN_C6,rcv=PIN_C7,bits=8)
#fuses HS,PUT,BROWNOUT,NOWDT,WDT1,NOPROTECT,NOWRTD,NOLVP
[snip]

The RS-232 string functions I findAny RS-232 string function I can find, seems to just get the first two chars out, and occasionally some garbage.

[snip fragment]
puts("hello"); // broken
printf("hello"); // broken
[snip fragment]



I suspect that the built in routines don't hang around and wait for the TX buffer to empty (and I bet it's double-buffered).

At 4800 baud, I do this
putc('h');
delay_ms(10);
putc('e');
delay_ms(10);
putc('l');
delay_ms(10);
putc('l');
delay_ms(10);
putc('o');

And it works fine every time.

Just surprised that this would be a bug if it really is. I've not had this particular problem with the 16fxxx PICs before.

Time to write my own puts(), no biggie. Wondering if anyone else has had this problem with the 18f parts in recent versions of the CCS compiler.

Try to add this at the end of your print statements so the pic does not go to sleep.

while(TRUE)
{
}

Thanks,

I should have posted the whole code, it was all contained in a never ending loop.

while(1)
{
//
do stuff
//
delay_ms(1000);


}

It can't go to sleep unless I let it, or is somebody deciding a bit much for me?

Turns out this was a hardware problem.
Crappy bypassing around the chip made the PLL unstable, it ran fine in fundamental and low-frequency modes.

Treat the PLL with care!

Sorry for the noise,
Lance
