Starting with Scenix
Josh Koffman email (remove spam text)
Hi all. I have been recently looking into the Scenix chips, and I'm
thinking about starting to experiment with them. For those curious, yes,
this is in relation to my PWM project. I've been browsing the SXlist.com
site, and now I have a few questions.
1) Is there any way to get samples of the SX chips? Does Ubicom have a
sample program, or one of the distributors?
2) I'm unsure how to go with a programmer. If I get heavy into the chips
I will likely spring for something like the SXkey so I end up with a
development environment and debugging. However, for starters I don't
really want to spend that kind of money. The homebuilt programmers
(particularly the Fluffy and its derivatives) look nice. I'd even
consider updating one to use a 16f628 and then releasing the code.
However, what do I use to actually code in? I believe the Fluffy comes
with an assembler, but I'd like to avoid coding in notepad or edit. Is
there one of the free or almost free programmers that comes with a
development environment? I'm not too concerned with simulation at the
moment, just coding, etc. And I'd like to avoid using MPLAB, I'd like to
keep that just for PIC work. So what do I do?
3) Are people for the most part satisfied with the chip and how well it
A common mistake that people make when trying to design something
completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete
