Hi all,

I've just uploaded the new ROMzap which includes some new software to
aquire data from one of the A2D inputs.

You can get aquisition in auto, manual or burst mode.
The results are stored in the PC and are written to a text file with
time stamping and alarm triggers.
External triggers (pos or neg edge) on any IO pin
Graphical display of the data
Alarm set points which can also change state of any IO pin

Hi all,

Just thought I'd let those who are using ROMzap know that I found an
obscure bug in the boot code. For the most part it may not cause
problems and a "char received" error will occur if it appears.

This has been fixed and will upload ASAP. Look for a version with a date
higher than today.

I have been using ROMzap on projects for months now and while it allows
fast code changing on the fly, it can still be a little slow to
reprogram.

(With me anyway) I have found that a high percentage of the reprogram
cycles are because of simple changes - like adjusting a timing loop, or
changing a MOVF RAM to a MOVF RAM,W. The trouble was that ROMzap would
still download the entire file but would only program when it found that
the changed data did not match the current ROM address contents.

To try to overcome this, I have added an optional "Turbo" mode for
programming.

In this mode, a copy of the program file data is stored on the PC and is
updated after every programming cycle. Providing certain conditions are
met, the data comparison is done inside the PC and only the changed data
is sent to ROMzap for reprogramming. Thus updates can take as little as
milli-seconds even for a 16F877.

 Hi Tony,
 Where can be found the asm firmware file for ROM zap? I've take a look
on to http://www.picpoint.com but I can't find it.

I guess the boot code ASM is not supplied as it is not needed for the
original concept behind the ROMZAP.  The hex code btupd.hex is supplied
though, ROMZAP simply programs your PIC with this bootloader code so you can
then upload your own code very simply.

If you want access to the boot code I suggest you contact Tony Nixon to see
what arrangments can be made.  His email address is on the web site.

Actually I lied.  Sortof.  The asm code is produced if you execute zomzap
and use the "program boot" function.  You have to save the PIC configuration
first.  The btupd.hex seems to be some kind of temporary bootloader for
overwritting an existing bootloader in a PIC.

ROMzap is free - unless you want a hardware kit ;-)

ROMzap doesn't need to be supplied with any *.asm code because it
generates all that is needed, according to your choices, and makes the
code available as *.asm files which are stored in a directory of your
choice. It has to do this because it relies on calling MPASMwin to do
the final assembly.

"btupdt.hex" is just a temporary piece of code that gets loaded at
address 0000h so that it can overwrite the boot code if the user wants
to change it. There's nothing special about it, and in fact is just a
mini copy of the basic functions of the real boot loader.

"btupdtbb.hex" has been included in the version I uploaded today so that
it can rewrite the boot code if the bit bang coms routines are used for
the 16F872 or if the UART is used for other purposes.

Hi all,

Just a quick update note for those that are using ROMzap.

I've been using it constantly over the last few weeks to develop the
PicPocket and as such have found other ways to make it run more
smoothly.

It gets to be a pain while debugging code that uses the serial port
because it has to be free for ROMzap or the project if only one serial
port is available.

To offset this a bit, ROMzap now remembers the last user settings and
filename and restores these on startup. Then it 'pings' the target PIC
for an ID and sets up the correct chip type. This means that you only
have to press the 'program' button to update your code, and with 'turbo'
mode, it can do it in a snap. In a lot of cases, it now takes MPLAB
longer to reassemble the code than ROMzap to reprogram the chip.

Hi all,

For those that use ROMzap, I added a "fly on the wall" option, which is
a small window that only has the Program, Run and Reset buttons on it.

This window tries to stay on top of all applications and as such can be
placed somewhere out of the way on the MPLAB interface for instance.
When the PIC source code is modified and reassembled, just hit program
and run it in the target application.

While developing code, just press Reset which temporarily pulls the MCLR
pin low to force the PIC back to boot mode and then reprogram and run
again.
