Allowable ICD length
John email (remove spam text)
Hello Anthony & PIC.ers,
My workshop pc is in a more-or-less fixed position, while the 16f877
target is a machine sitting outside under a car-port & weighs 250kg.
Definitely not mobile, that one.
I started by making a twp comms extension cable between the ICD and
16f877 header extension of 10.4 metres, knowing it was much longer
than I really needed. It performed poorly, with many hang-ups, GPFs
etc., and was generally painful.
After halving the length to 5.2m it worked perfectly & I was still
*just* able to string it out to the target.
Hope this helps, as un-scientific as it is....
best regards, John
PS For the SI-challenged, 5.2 metres = 17 foot and a wee bit.
