{September 26, 2007}   Piklab in Debian

I’ve been so busy lately that I forgot to write about it: Piklab is now in Debian. I don’t know if any of you has done and development with PIC microcontrollers, but it’s not that there was a lot of free programs for doing so. Even now, it might be problematic depending on which hardware you have for programming them. In any case, Piklab is an integrated development environment for applications based on Microchip PIC and dsPIC microcontrollers similar to the MPLAB environment, which makes it easier to develop. It’s a real pity that we cannot consider the newer versions of SDCC as DFSG-free, due some non-commercial clauses, because it is a real nice companion compiler for Piklab.

Hi Miriam,
I’m currently using piklab and ICD2 programmer. You just need copy the firmware directory from MPLAB 7.x to piklab use it.

Usted programa com microcontroladores PIC ?

Abraços,

Alan

Hi there, cool, i was just looking for a solution for pic micros under linux/debian.

will surelly give it a try!

By any chance do you know if pickit2, the low cost usb programmer from microchip, works with piklab?



Jose says:

Just the info I was looking for!

I was having trouble with the inchworm+ and mplab 8.15 refusing to work with it.

After hooking up with piklab and playing around with it a bit, it looks like I could use piklab (in linux) hooked into mplab (within wine).

Anyone with problems, just try on the command line something in this fashion for your particular HEX file…

—————
piklab-prog -p icd2 -t /dev/ttyS0 -d 16F946 –firmware-dir ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Microchip/MPLAB\ IDE/ICD2/ ~/MyProg/MyProject/file16F946.HEX -i
—————

Good Luck!
Jose Da Silva



Carsten says:

Hi, Miriam,

will you provide in the future a package for Debian for version 0.16.3?
The package you build (0.15.7-1) is getting kind of old and I have issues installing it in more reasoned versions of Debian.
