Regarding programming PIC from raspberry pi using picberry software tool.

Tue Feb 19, 2019 3:22 pm

Hi All,
We are trying to program PIC from Raspberry pi using picberry software tool details are given below:
https://github.com/WallaceIT/picberry
We are able to build the install picberry in raspberrypi, but we need the device libraries for this perticular host ie. PIC24FJ256GB206, This device includes .h and .cpp file.
We are trying to get it from pi forum.
If you have any contact details, who can provide us the support for getting this files, it would be great!!!

Hi there

Thanks for posting your query. As this isn't a standard Code Club project, it's possible, but unlikely, that you'll get a response in the Code Club forum. May I move your query to the Troubleshooting forum, where you might get an answer from someone who has tried this before?

Many thanks

Katharine

picberry doesn't appear to support the PIC24FJ*GB* devices currently. Maybe best to raise an issue at https://github.com/WallaceIT/picberry/issues - but the developer can only add the chips that they have access to and there are hundreds of different PICs out there.

I found the Device Libraries(.h and .cpp) which supports "PIC24FJ256GB206" in Available PIC Families "pic24fjxxxga3xx"
I had followed the installation steps of picberry using the link: https://github.com/WallaceIT/picberry
And I tried to flash the PIC board of controller "PIC24FJ256GB206" using below command and It is giving me ERROR.

root@raspberrypi:/home/pi/vendingserver/picberry# sudo picberry -w Elock2.54.X.test_release.hex
picberry PIC Programmer v0.2
Device ID: 0xffff
ERROR: unknown/unsupported device or programmer not connected.
Press ENTER to exit program mode...

Could you please tell me where i am getting wrong or please let me know how to debug this issue?
If any one tried this with other PIC controller and got the result, Please guide me.

Thanks
Rakesh

picberry doesn't work with PIC24FJ256GB206.
You will need to ask the author.
The author of picberry is the best person to ask: this is the first time the project has been mentioned here.

Thanks a lot for the support. I have created the new issue in https://github.com/WallaceIT/picberry/issues/15
Yes. If picberry is worked for any PIC device then then it would be great if someone will help in this case.

Could we have list of practically supported PIC Devices for picberry tool?
It may be good to first get it working with one of the supported devices.

Thanks
