proton24 to firewing

Postby paulbrohan » Thu Nov 01, 2018 10:52 am

I am used to programming in proton24 and have just bought the firewing r2 board as a ready made hardware. i expected to find firewing in the list of programmers on my proton ide. am i missing something? firewing and its shields looks like a wonderful answer to my soldering problems but i dont really want to start learning a new language. my application is recording temperature and humidity on an sd card. I would be most grateful for any help.i

Really, if you learn Firewing you'll never look back again. :shock:

You should be able to add the firewing loader to PDS. The parameters used are:

Code: Select all
$long-hex-filename$ -cfirewing -dtr=on -mcu=$target-device$ -bid=$board-id$


so for PDS 24 something like

Code: Select all
$long-hex-filename$ -cfirewing -dtr=on -mcu=24HJ128GP502 -bid=2


should work

Thank you David
sorry to be so dumb but
It worked once and now says unable to open firewing so I guess I've overwritten the bootloader? and perhaps I should resort to my pickit3 till I've got the hang of things?
are there any instructions about using the icsp on the r2 board and I dont even know where to find a firewing bootloader. The attraction of firewing for me is the lcd shield so im hoping that will be back in stock soon.

There is an ICSP header to the right of the Firewing board. I use this a lot myself and will work fine with MPLABX. Pin 1 can be identified by the "square" solder pad (just above the blue LED D5). It's best to solder a header in place (I use an angled header)

I'm pretty sure you will find the bootloader on the main hardware page, just check which board you are using? eg: 8bit, 16bit or 32bit? :)

..and jumps between the various families modifying only the interrupt management.
I use Swordfish as toolsuite and everything works magically even for the 18 where interrupts are reduced to the bone ;)
