Snap programmer and dsPIC30F4011
I'm new to the forums and generally new to PIC micro controllers in general. I have been working on a project that was designed to work with a dsPIC30F4011 and for some reason mplab x 5.35 will not recognize the controller when the snap is connected. I have successfully used the snap debugger with dsPIC30F2020.
Can anyone give me a clue why the 4011 is not supported and what would happen if I selected the 2020 instead? I am loading a .hex file that was supplied to me so I am thinking (hoping) that all the configuration information is included in the .hex file and that selecting the controller should actually be irrelevant since all I am trying to do is flash the chip from mplab x. Am I out of the ball park here?
I have tried mplab ipe as well but it does not recognize the snap either.
I really don't want to have to buy a new debugger/programmer since I am working on very, very tight budget as I am a retired, disabled old guy on a very meager pension.
Any insights would be greatly appreciated.
