dsPIC33CK Curiosity Evaluation Board (DM330030) and Demo Programme
I am new to the forum, microchip MCUs and the MPLAB X IDE, so welcome to everybody and exuse if my questions are very beginner level!
I have bought the dsPIC33CK Curiosity Evaluation Board (DM330030) last week and installed the toolchain to programme the board (MPLAB X IDE, XC16, MCC). I also downloaded the dsPIC33CK_Curiosity_Demo_v1_06_50.zip (available from https://www.microchip.com/DevelopmentTools/ProductDetails/PartNO/DM330030#additional-summary
Unforunately, I have some issues with the setup (as it seems).
The evaluation board includes a USB-UART interface, which works perfectly fine, if I use MPLAB X IDE to compile and upload the code to the MCU.
The issue is that the libraries such as stdint.h, stdio.h, etc. are not recognized by the software, but the compiler has no issue to successfully compile the code. (see picture attached)
Is this a known issue of the IDE or did I make a mistake during installation?
The demo program is uploaded and includes a printf() line, to print some text to the terminal, if a button is pressed.
When I try to connect with Putty to the development board, I can not see any understandable text. (see picture attached)
I have read in the forum that the printf() command is redirected to UART, which should be connected to the USB interface that is used. Unfortunately, any other charater settings etc. did not help to read text in the putty terminal window.
Did I understand the Demo code correctly that printf() is used to output the pressed button information?
How do I connect correctly to the development board to read the printf() outputs from the code?
I hope someone here can help me! Very much appreciated.
