I use linux, and I know I bunch of people that use it for development as well as found in 100's of Forums on FB that I am in.

I have Everything from  Atmel to STM to Xilinx running under Linux and especially Microchip stuff, so Ya, a Linux port will be  Greatly Appreciated by All !!   :-+

jer  :)
I have almost everything running under macOS (except Xilinx and Intel FPGA stuff, both of which refuse to allow me read anything on my 24-inch 4K monitor under Linux and does not have a macOS version available.)

Post/send me the part number of the board and I will check.

A few questions in this post.

Quote
Does this mean PICKit+ software can be used with a PK2, and the device file is updated to support the latest 16F parts? And is P2G supported with PK2?

PICkitPlus can be used with a PICkit2 programmmer.

And, yes, the microcontroller database has been updated to support the latest 16f.

re P2G.  We have not changed this capability.


Quote
Do you have to use PCKit+ software? Or do you also have a updated device file that works with the original PK2 software?

You can use the  new microcontroller database with the old PICkit software.  We wanted to ensure this was supported.

But, the new microcontroller database does not enable the old PICkit software to program the latest 16F (and 18F) parts  - specifically, those use the newer programming protocols.   For these parts you will need PICkitPlus or use MPLAB-IPE with a suitable programmer.

See https://github.com/Anobium/PICKitPlus or https://sourceforge.net/projects/pickit3plus/  We publish the databases to these URLs

We have started the Linux port.  :-)

Great. Keep in mind that if you check your dependencies for OS peculiarities, the very same code should be able to work under other flavors of UNIX and other CPU architectures after a quick recompile. This includes macOS, Android, FreeBSD, Solaris etc.

I'd love to see a version for the RasPi that I could call from Python to allow some automation of the upload / test process that could free me from having a windows PC just to put a HEX file onto a PIC micro.

Any change more dspics will be supported?
I'm using the pickit3+ tool for my 18LF13K22 and would like to use it also for the dsPic33EP256MU810 :)

Thanks in advance.
Regards,
Bas

If you are up to testing the updates for the dsPic33EP256MU810 then we can certainly look into this.

Email me directly.

Some Device ID errors in the latest data file (205)?
Code: [Select]

DS39919C    PIC24F08KA101   0x0B08  -> 0x0D08
DS39919C    PIC24F16KA101   0x0B01  -> 0x0D01
DS39919C    PIC24F08KA102   0x0B0A  -> 0x0D0A
DS39919C    PIC24F16KA102   0x0B03  -> 0x0D03
DS30009687F PIC18F46J13     0x5BA0  -> 0x59a0
DS41630B    PIC18F26K50     0x5D10  -> 0x5D20
DS41630B    PIC18LF26K50    0x5D30  -> 0x5D60


The good news is that I have cross-checked all the devices with my own independently generated database and all the rest matched my findings so we can have a lot more confidence that the rest of the Device IDs are correct.   On the proviso, of course, that Microchip have published the correct IDs in the latest programming specs...

@JTR.  Would you send me parts database?  I will merge and republish 206.

The quality improvements benefit everyone as the parts database is still compatible with the Microchip PICkit applications for the legacy parts.

Thank you for doing the quality check.
