PICCADA Utility For Use With RTDM

PICCADA Utility For Use With RTDM

Postby Tight Yorky » Wed Nov 18, 2015 10:00 pm

Hi,
Attached is a utility for use with PIC24/33 RTDM facilities. I find it very useful for fault finding, testing and commissioning.
Sorry, there is no help file. I have tried to populate the 'hint' facilities so just hover your mouse over display items and buttons.

It is definitely 'work in progress'.
The 'dashboard' is full of parameters to see how friendly 'Windows' is being. Not much use.
Basically, there is a set of 'points' which can be monitored using RTDM. These can be 'humanised' by the 'point database' which is set up with the 'point inspector'.
Points can be displayed in a matrix with other text. This matrix allows edit points as well.
A set of buttons are provided to allow switches to be configured and values to be sent.

The RS232 serial config allows non-standard BAUD rates to cater for comms that doesn't adhere to the standards.
All the configuration settings are in INI files.
Originally, the intention was for a separate HMI utility and a configuration utility. This is still in the future. Some items I do edit direct in the INI according to my notes, so are 'undocumented'.
I will try and type up my notes as a README file or revise the program.
Any questions just ask here or on MChip forum. Will try and answer.
(Change extensions to dot1AY and use the utility posted below to assemble)
