Trouble getting started with ICD-S
PostPosted: Tue Mar 25, 2003 4:14 pm     Reply with quote

Installed software:
PCH 3.146
MPLAB 6.10
MPLAB Plugin latest

Hookup:
CCS Prototype Kit running a PIC18F458 @20mhz
ICD-S Hooked up to COM1 and Proto board. Green light solid ON.

I compile a minimal test program that includes the #device ICD=TRUE and the #delay(clock=20000000) directives.

I go to the ICD program. “Check Com” ->Passed for all Baud Rates. “Test ICD”-> Passed.

I attempt to download the test program hex via the ICD “Download to Target” button and get “Could not detect target” message.

ICD Status line reports: Under the Target columm->Not Detected. Under the ICD-S columm->CCS 0.96 Rev 34/20. Under the PC Columm->Device:COM1-115200.

From the PCW if I attempt to DEBUG -> ENABLE, I get “The target is not detected or in debug mode”.

How do I figure out what the problem is?

Thanks

Jerry

MPLAB6.1xxx wants ICD-2. You can program your chip using ICD-S but I don't believe you can debug with it. I have used ICD-S successfully as a stand alone programmer which loads the hex file generated by MPLAB6.1xx.

Perhaps the ICD-S does not support the 18F458 - I noticed that CCS just (today) has a new ICD-S software available for download on the site - If I ewere you...I'd try that :)

Good luck

CCS's literature says the ICD-S will support the 18F458 if you update the ICD-S firmware --- which I did, but forgot to mention above. I am running the latest Plugin -- today's version.

Thanks for the response though

Jerry

If you updated the firmware after downloading the new ICD-S software, then I guess I'm stumped. I have gotten the target not detected message on the 18F1320, but then CCS updated the ICD-S software and now it works fine. I do know that the chip data that ICD-S uses are in a .dat file in the CCS older on your disk, but I think it's not changeable by mere mortals :)

I'm sure there are others on this BBS who know far more than I do. Hopefully, they'll have the answers.

Sorry I can't be more helpful.

John

Arghhh ... some times I wonder how I manage to walk and talk at the same time!!!!

The CCS Prototyping board is the only ZIF device I have that has Pin 1 on the side away from the lever. I have several others that all have pin 1 on the lever side. I had the PIC in backwards.

Makes ya wonder if I should be working on mission critical stuff ???

Sorry for wasting your time.

Thanks

Jerry

You mean you can write code and chew gum at the same time? Can I come study under you?

Glad you figured it out. Time, I believe, falls under the Laws of Matter and Energy - it can't be wasted...only squandered!
