vcfg on 12f675
PostPosted: Tue Mar 18, 2003 2:30 pm     Reply with quote

The only way I can get the external ref voltage to work on the 12f675 is to set the VCFG bit. Should the setup_adc or setup_adc_ports set this bit for me?

eg . setup_adc_ports(VREF||AN2_analog)

Thanks

Andrew

I don't think that works. The compiler doesn't appear to be
able to support the VCFG bit with the built-in ADC functions.
I tested it with PCM vs. 3.148. I think you have to do this:


#bit VCFG_BIT = 0x1F.6 // Define address of VCFG bit

void main()
{

// Put ADC setup functions here.

// The following line must go after the setup_adc() function.
VCFG_BIT = 1; // Enable the Vref pin

while(1);
}

-------------------------------------------------
Also, when you combine parameters like this, you must use the
Bitwise OR operator. You're using the Logical OR operator, and
that won't work.

setup_adc_ports(VREF ||AN2_analog)

(You still have to use the code I posted above. I'm just
mentioning this for future reference).

Thanks, that is what I found as well but wanted some confirmation that I was not using the functions correctly. As for the or, a typo in my message.

Thanks again.

PS. also having trouble with gp3. all my other ports work as expected. However I can not get gp3 to work. I have indicated NOMCLR in my fuses line. I have tested it on two devices with the same results.

Any hints on this one.

Andrew

GP3 can only be an input. It doesn't have an output driver.
Section 3.3.4 of the 12F675 data sheet says it can only be
configured as a MCLR input or a general purpose input.

Thanks for the response.

I should have been more clear. I wanted it to be an analog input. After rechecking the pinout found that the analog port I need to use is on pin 3. Thabks

And by the way, How do you guys know all these specs of the various devices like it is on the back of your hand?

Actually, I don't know them all. :)

I go here, and type in, for the group: comp.arch.embedded.*
<a href="http://groups.google.com/advanced_group_search" TARGET="_blank">http://groups.google.com/advanced_group_search</a>
That gets some of the piclist archives, which is where I
think the answer will be. I search for: 12F675 GP3

Then I read the posts and find one that complains that GP3
doesn't work. One person says that GP3 is input only.
I take a quick look at the 12F675 data sheet and confirm this.
Then I post the answer here.

Now, I do know (or remember) a lot of the facts. But I also
use the internet as a brain amplifier.

Also, I suspect you would have 'expected' this, since the pin behaves the same on the 12C508, 12C67x etc.
There is a lot of 'commonality' in PIC I/O, allowing a significant reduction in the amount of data needing to be held. Hence if somebody talks about a problem with (say) Port A4, there is an allmost instinctive thought of 'open collector drive only', while a reference to GP3, links to 'input only', and one to RB6/RB7, ties to 'ICD'.
Obviously the 'brain amplifier' then allows this to be checked. :-)

Best Wishes
