'[PIC]: How do you ask for Microchip Samples?'

picon face
1) I'm new at this and would like to ask MicroChip for a few samples. How do
you go about asking. I don't want to sound like a freeloader I have bought
afew on E-Bay and DIY kits. I do have plans on getting several (500) later
on. Any proper way to ask??
2) I have a HEX file that I'm working with. How do you tell how much memory
is required in a PIC? I plan on moving from one PIC to another..
3) I hope I sent this correctly to the Piclist? I have seen the : inside the
[PIC:] as well as outside the [PIC]:  Looks like it works both ways.

This depends on the country you live in. If the US, UK and some parts
of Europe then you register on their samples website and can order
them there, if you happen to be living in far out off the end of the
world places such as Australia,New Zealand or South Africa, then you
have to see your local Mchip office or rep.

The country list changes from time to time, Australia was on it, but
now isn't :(

I have always been a few Dendrites short of an Axon and believe me it
shows.

Four ways off the top of my head -

1) Import into MPLAB and view with Program Memory/Opcode Hex

2) Look under HEX file in

Help/Microchip Language Tools Help/MPASM Assembler Help

3) There's a document at uC's site, but it seems to be down again
so I can't get the address for you

4) View it with a WP such as Notepad. eg a small .hex file (for F628)


:020000040000FA

=================================

This the program code

4 lines that start with 10. ie 16 bytes at 0000, 0010, 0020 and 0030

:1000000001288301831603138313FF309B0083129F
:1000100003138313A00120081420831203138313F6
:10002000A00AA01D0B2813288316031383139A001C
:100030009B0A9B001C1555309D00AA309D009C1406

Then 8 bytes at 0040

:0800400008009C1821280800AB

Therefore program occupies 0000 to 0048

=================================

:02400E00293F48
:10420000FF00FF00FF00FF00FF00FF00FF00FF00B6
:00000001FF

The information is in the HEX file, and it would be trivial to write a
program that sums up all the used regions.  However, it is much easier
just to look in the map file produced by the linker.

Larry,

-----Original Message-----

1) I'm new at this and would like to ask MicroChip for a few samples.
How do
you go about asking. I don't want to sound like a freeloader I have
bought
afew on E-Bay and DIY kits. I do have plans on getting several (500)
later
on. Any proper way to ask??

Use Web site or ask your rep.

2) I have a HEX file that I'm working with. How do you tell how much
memory
is required in a PIC? I plan on moving from one PIC to another..

import your hex file in mplab and view disassembly and save it as
xxx.asm
then make new project compile mplab should show you that I hope.


3) I hope I sent this correctly to the Piclist? I have seen the : inside
the
[PIC:] as well as outside the [PIC]:  Looks like it works both ways.

No problem

It does, but the "outside" version works better.
(Mainly a problem with the [EE:] tag thought...)
