Monofonic Audio Chip

Post by bitfogav » Wed Sep 14, 2011 4:00 am

Hi Brad, Can I just say that your new Super Pixel Bros game sytem looks fantastic!, nice job :)

I have a question, I see there is a 12F617 microcontroller on the board is this the Monofonic Audio Chip? Or what is its purpose? :)

hello brad i wanted to ask you is the Monofonic Audio Chip a pic12f617 and is it the same as a 12f615

Yes it is the monofonic audio chip (thanks to Stacy!)

these chips will be available from iteadstudio very soon = )

(you can program them yourself although it is quite hard because the pickit2 doesnt support them)

So I guess you have a hex file for the monofonic chip Brad?, The pickit3 will programme 12F617.

The PICKit 2 does support the 12F615/17 but it is a bit of work to do so. I will get some information up when I get a chance to dig around and remember how I did it. MPLab does not support direct programming to the chip when coding, so you need to run the compiler then program it via the HEX file as bitfogav suggested.

As far as the MonoFonic audio chip goes, I will also try and put together a tutorial on how I make music with a PIC but it's pretty involved so it might take some time to try and explain it. Currently I have several Mario Bro's songs, some TETRIS songs, and a hand full of sound effects.

I had planned on making several different audio chips and a small project/experimental board for people who are interested, but I did a little research and found that Parallax has quite a bit of stuff dedicated to the same idea and it's all in BASIC.

Since everyone here has abandoned assembly programming for the PIC, I decided it's probably not worth the effort.

Any time you deviate from sequential consistency, you increase the complexity of the problem by orders of magnitude.

Brad, Just out of interest have you tried downloading the latest Device File from Microchip for the Pickit2, Ive not got a 12F617 handy so i cant try it but was wondering if that would make the 12F617 compatible with Pickit2?

Heres the latest Device File from microchip for the Pickit2 application version 2.61
PK2DFUpdate-1-62-09.zip
(20.66 KiB) Downloaded 303 times
I think you need to copy the file into the Directory where the Pickit2 application runs from :)


Heres the link to the device file on microchip:

Bitfogav,

I believe you are right that the latest device file has support for the 12f609/615/617. If not, here is the link to the Microchip forums where I was given information on how to edit the device file to add a new PIC device.
