PIC16F753 Version ID Problem.
I need to synthesize a custom waveform.
I remembered I had a tube of PIC16F753´s from an old project.
They have a 9 bit DAC on chip.
Built and tested the code with the software simulator.
However on attempting to programme the chips I got an ID missmatch message.
Using MPLAB X and PicKit 3 all the chips gave the same result.
Tried again with MPLAB 8.92 and PicKit 3. Same result.
I suspect the PicKit firmware (downloaded when setting up the project) is for a later silicon revision.
Before getting online to buy and wait for the latest chip release.
(We live in a remote location in Spain which the post and carriers have difficulty finding!!!)
Does anyone know where to find, online, earlier PicKit 3 firmware for this chip??
