The pseudo RS interface circuit is self-echoing: After this is done an appropriate delay must be 16f87d for the target to start. The loader detects this and will immediately activate the application. The current version Your email address will not be published. The current location is set to the first location of the program memory.

PIC16FArchitecture-Memory Organization with Block Diagram

I recommend this version only to those who are enthousiastic about minimal-hardware solutions and can solve the problems that might occur. Hence the loading will not be hindered by the configuration fuses in the hex file, and a copy can be made of the application and configuration fuses and this copy can be downloaded using either the loader or a normal programmer. The L is echoed as? Loading the WLoader firmware disables it, so B3 is freed for use by the application. If neither WLoader nor any of the other bootloaders satisfies your particular needs for instance because you want I2C, SPI or another exotic interface do not hesitate to develop your own bootloader, it is not very difficult.

Except for the crystal which must be 20 MHz and the reset see below you can vary this part of the target circuit to suit your needs, or use what you already have in your design.

The pro’s and con’s of the three loading methods are summarized below. When nothing is connected to the RS connector R1 keeps the 16f input high, which causes the loader to start the application when a reset occurs. For an overly-clever compiler you can try to let the application start with three NOPs. Program counters PC is used to keep the track of the program execution by holding the address of the current instruction. The block diagram shows the taget circuit as far as relevant for WLoader.


It might be necessarry to copy the p16f Datasheeh production system could just provide the relevant signals on a 2×4 pin header, and rely on a download dongle that contains the remote reset and the RS circuitry.

When the optional remote reset circuit is implemented the DTR line can be made high to reset the target. Two test programs are provided, written in Jal. The write time is controlled by an on-chip timer. For program memory the higer two bits are set to 0.

A typical program – run sequence would be: The current memory location 4 hexadecimal digits is read and coped the content to the communication buffer. Each time the main program execution starts at address — Reset Vector. According to the type of the microcontroller, these banks may vary.

The hex value abcd is written to the current memory location. Program memory contains the programs that are written by the user.

The banked arrangement is necessary because there are only 7 bits are available in the instruction word for the addressing of a register, which gives only addresses. Besides the standard WBus-defined commands the WLoader firmware implements a number of specific commands which are described in the next table, together with the WLoader-specific aspects of the WBus-defined commands.

The Flash program memory allows catasheet reads and four-word block writes. The current location is set to the first location of the configuration memory.

The user application instructions datashest these addresses are put at a location within the loader, and are executed before the jump to the rest of the user application program, starting at address 3. Each bank holds bytes of addressable memory. For a 4 MHz Xtal 19k2 is too fast, 9k6 works.

The loader interface hardware can be dztasheet of the final circuit, and the loader interface pin can be shared with its operational function, but some attention must paid to its use: Once LVP is disabled in the configuration fuses word this pull-down might no longer be needed, but some people have reported that it is still needed for succesfull HVP programming.


I datasgeet 20 and 10 MHz xtals at the WBus default baudrate of 19k2.

WLoader – a 16f877 application loader

Don’t ask me for help. Hence the application loaded by the loader can be exactly the same as a stand-alone program downloaded to the 16f When the circuit is split between a dongle and the real target R1 must be included in the target so the application will be started on a reset. The stack space is not a part of either program or data space and the stack pointers are not readable or writable.

R Read The current memory location 4 hexadecimal digits is read and coped the content to the communication buffer. The right side or the circuit is the same 16F target circuit as used with the MAX Self-programming means that the 16f87x can program its own code FPROM, so – once you have loaded suitable application loader firmware in your target 16f87x – a simple serial interface to your PC is all you need to download and run an application.

When the RS input is negative the zener now acting as diode and the same resistors put a voltage on the interface pin that is close to zero. The whole gadget can be plugged in where a 16f would fit and adds in-circuit downloading to a circuit. Microchip keeps changing its website, so when these links turn out to be invalid you might have to look around a little.

WLoader – a 16f application loader

Self-programming uses a program datasjeet by the 16f itself. R1 is needed when the MAX can be removed from the circuit when it is part of a download dongle to provide a low level on the RE2 pin of the 16F, so WLoader datashheet start the application. The memory of a PIC 16F chip is divided into 3 sections. The loader disables the analoge functions of port A to make it possible to use the port A pins as digital inputs.

LVP seems to be available on all new flash chips 16f87x, 16f62x.
