PICSWR version information
Note that Calswr version numbering will change even if the upate does not affect Calswr.
August 2007 - Version 1010 - initial release version
20.11.2007 - version 1040 - PIC 16F876-20 hex code modified to run with PicAStar DSP code version 2a02.XJP. The changes resulted from a change to the byte sequence of data sent from DSP to the Status board PIC. No change to CALSWR.
22.11.2007 - version 1050 - PIC 16F876-20 hex code modified again to run with PicAStar DSP code versions onwards from 2a03.XJP. The changes resulted from a further change to the byte sequence of data sent from DSP to the Status board PIC. No change to CALSWR.
1.6.2008 - version
- Bug fixed whereby eeprom storage of data downloaded from PC to Picswr had interchanged analogue S-meter fwd and refl W/db.
- Correction to Picswr schematic. Pin 8 of IC1 (Vss) to 0v. (was labelled +5v - but layout was correct connecting to 0v)
24.11.2008 - version
- Hex code had switch set to XT (needs HS for 20Mhz Xtal) - I had switched this prior to programming in my MElabs programmer. I hadn't realised that the 'save' option modified the hex file. This problem was brought to light by someone with a programming device with no means to change to HS. The hex code is now it set to automatically default to HS mode.
15.02.2009 - version
- Hex code fix of 1100 applied to a slightly earlier version - fixed.
