    I've tried (with no success) to get a simple led blink program running on
    the 16F877. !MCLR is +5v through a 10k res, Vdd is +5v, Vss is 0V, I have
    a .1uF ceramic cap across Vdd and Vss. OSCout is pulsing, which makes me
    think the chip is 'running' and not locked up. I have a canned
    oscillator on OSCin. To avoid floating inputs, I have set all pins as

    Here is my code, beter yet, does anyone have a known working led blink for
    this chip? It would help infinitely.

    only led_blink.asm and p16f877 are being used to blink an led on RD_0.

    Thanks anyone.

    Hi All,
    You need to place a 1K resistor or higher on MCLR, with a
    capacitor of 100nF or higher, one side of resistor goes to Vdd, one side of
    cap goes to Gnd.


    You may also have the problem, that the unit is flashing, but you haven't
    calculated the on / off times correctly and it is flashing at a higher
    frequency than the eye can detect.

    Below is a sample code for PIC 12F675 for led flasher

    movlw b'00010000'
    movwf gpio
    movlw b'00000000'
    loop btfsc pir1,0
    goto bitset
    goto loop
    bitset btfsc gpio,4
    goto set1
    btfss gpio,4
    goto clear1
    set1 bcf gpio,4
    bcf pir1,0
    goto loop
    clear1 bsf gpio,4
    bcf pir1,0
    goto loop

    I have also found the chips can be a little susceptable to outside noise, so
    you may require 4K7 resistors on unused inputs, although for this project
    it's not really required.

    Before anyone mentions the weak pull ups (WPU), I found they were not really
    enough to block the noise and stop false triggering of the chip

    Hi All,
    With great success, thanks.

    One was programmed to activate a modified video for surveillance work, when
    a PIR was triggered it would record for 2 minutes and then shut down, wait
    for the next trigger.

    One was used to detect when a voltage line failed or started.

    One was used to set my JX-3P synth to automaticaly not be in omni mode, but
    only to receive on channel 1 ( MIDI )
