Note the following details of the code protection feature on Microchip devices:
•
Microchip products meet the specification contained in their particular Microchip Data Sheet.
•
Microchip believes that its family of products is one of the most secure families of its kind on the market today, when used in the
intended manner and under normal conditions.
•
There are dishonest and possibly illegal methods used to breach the code protection feature. All of these methods, to our
knowledge, require using the Microchip products in a manner outside the operating specifications contained in Microchip’s Data
Sheets. Most likely, the person doing so is engaged in theft of intellectual property.
•
Microchip is willing to work with the customer who is concerned about the integrity of their code.
•
Neither Microchip nor any other semiconductor manufacturer can guarantee the security of their code. Code protection does not
mean that we are guaranteeing the product as “unbreakable.”
Code protection is constantly evolving. We at Microchip are committed to continuously improving the code protection features of our
products. Attempts to break Microchip’s code protection feature may be a violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. If such acts
allow unauthorized access to your software or other copyrighted work, you may have a right to sue for relief under that Act.

ADC.
2.7.1
Real-Time Clock (RTC)
Clicking on the Real-Time Clock tab will display calendar and clock contents of the
real-time clock function running on the 28-pin demo board. The 28-pin demo board has
been programmed to emulate a stand-alone serial I2C clock-calendar device. The I2C
commands are very similar to the commands used in these devices. The demonstration program will constantly poll the 28-pin demo board and display the contents of the
real-time clock.
The Real-Time Clock window displays calendar and clock controls. Notice the date and
time when the 28-pin demo board has first been powered on. The date and time start
at January 1, 2000 at midnight (12:00 AM).
The user can manually enter calendar and clock values and send the values to the
real-time clock by clicking on the Update RTC button. Or the user can click on the Set
RTC to System Time button to set the Real-Time Clock to the date and time of the
computer.

Serial EEPROM (EEPROM)
Clicking on the EEPROM tab will display the 256 byte array of EEPROM memory as
shown in Figure 2-4. The 28-pin demo board has been programmed to emulate a
stand-alone serial I2C EEPROM device such as a 24LC02. The I2C commands are
very similar to the commands used in these devices.
The Serial EEPROM tab displays the contents of a serial EEPROM implemented on
the 28-pin demo board. When this tab is first displayed, the values are grayed out. This
means that the display does not match the contents of the emulated serial EEPROM.
Click on the Read EE button and the program will read and display the contents of the
28-pin demo board. Notice that the displayed values are now black.
Individual memory locations can be changed by clicking on the value and typing in a
new value in hexadecimal. Notice that the changed values will be displayed in red. This
means the value has changed but has not been written to the emulated serial
EEPROM. Click on the Write EE button and the values will be written. The color of the
value will turn to black indicating that the value has been written and the display
matches the contents of the emulated serial EEPROM.

the I2C Specification reference in Section 4.1 “Introduction” above). The basic
structure of the command is:
• Start bit (S_)
• Slave Address[W] – Enter the slave address of the device to communicate with.
The Write bit should be cleared to indicate a write operation.
• Word Address – Enter the word address
• Restart (RS),
• Slave Address[R] – The slave address with the Write bit set will be automatically
entered when the Slave Address[W] has been entered.
• Byte Count – Enter the number of bytes to be read
• Stop bit (P_)
Note:
The “x” indicates the value is a hexadecimal number. Clicking on “x” will
toggle it to a “d” indicating that the value is a decimal number.
Write performs a write operation to the target device (refer to The I2C Specification
reference in Section 4.1 “Introduction” above). The basic structure of the command
is:
• Start bit (S_)
• Slave Address[W] – Enter the slave address of the device to communicate with.
The Write bit should be cleared to indicate a write operation.
• Word Address – Enter the word address
• Data – Enter up to eight bytes of data

The sequence of macro commands are executed from top to bottom. Macro commands
are entered by right clicking in the box and selecting from the local menu as shown in
Figure 4-9.
Macro commands are entered according to the sequence of events as defined by the
I2C bus protocol. Studying the example scripts is a good way to learn the sequence of
events. The example scripts can also be modified and saved under a different name.
CAUTION
The choice of macro commands is very flexible. Therefore, the correctness of the
script has to be verified by the user. The PICkit Serial Analyzer program does not
verify the correctness of the script.
A complete listing of the available macro commands is given in Table 4-2. The macro
command abbreviation will be displayed in the Transactions window. The Transactions
window keeps a running log of the commands and data sent to and from the target

Chapter 5. I2C™ Slave Communications
5.1
INTRODUCTION
This chapter describes I2C Slave Communications. The I2C Slave mode allows you to
mimic an I2C slave by responding to standard Read, Write and Receive commands.
You can mimic an I2C slave device from either the PICkit Serial Analyzer PC interface
(Interactive mode), or from the PICkit Serial Analyzer itself (Auto mode).
Additionally, you can run the Interactive mode from either the Basic Communications
page, or from the I2C Slave Profile page.
It is assumed that the user is familiar with the I2C protocol. For more information see:
• The I2C Bus Specification Version 2.1 January 2000 is available from NXP
Semiconductor (formerly Philips Semiconductor) web site at:

I2C™ Slave Communications
I2C SLAVE MODE
There are three modes of I2C slave operation:
• Default: Basic/mechanical mode of operation in which the PICkit Serial Analyzer
blindly accepts any/all ‘write’ data and provides canned/default ‘read’ data in
response to any enabled I2C address and all device addresses.
• Interactive: This mode allows the host to orchestrate I2C transactions in ‘real
time’. This necessarily requires the host to provide ‘read’ and ‘receive’ data as
needed while the PICkit Serial Analyzer holds the I2C bus clock line (waiting).
‘Write’ data is reported to the host via transaction event tags.
• Automatic: In Auto mode the PICkit Serial Analyzer operates autonomously as
defined by a dynamic “slave profile” table stored in PICkit Serial Analyzer RAM. At
any time the host can read and/or update the table as needed.
SCRIPT TIME-OUT
When the slave responds to Read and Receive queries the software will wait a maximum of script time-out ms to receive a script complete tag before issuing an error. If
your slave profile is responding with large amounts of data, you may need to increase
the script time-out to avoid errors.

COMMUNICATIONS: BASIC OPERATIONS
The I2C Slave Basic Operations window can be opened by selecting:
• Basic Operations from the tool bar, or
• Communications > Basic Operations from the menu bar
The I2C Slave Basic Operations window is shown in Figures 5-3. There are three basic
communications commands, Receive, Write and Read.
FIGURE 5-3:
I2C™ SLAVE – BASIC OPERATIONS
Receive responds to a basic Receive request from the master. In Return Byte Count,
enter the number of bytes a Receive request will respond with, then enter the data to
be returned in the data array. The Basic page limits you to eight bytes of returned data.
Note:
The “x” indicates the value is a hexadecimal number. Clicking on “x” will
toggle it to a “d” indicating that the value is a decimal number.
Write simply displays the byte count and data written by the master.
Read responds to a basic Read request by the master. In Return Byte Count, enter the
number of bytes a Read request will respond with, then enter the data to be returned
in the data array. The Basic page limits you to eight bytes of returned data.
Byte Count will display the number of bytes between the slave read address and the
slave write address. Data will display the data between the slave read address and the
slave write address.
PICkit Serial Analyzer Slave Address set the slave address here you wish the software to respond to, then press the Apply button. A confirmation message should
appear on the Transactions window.

Show Profile Generator. Press this to close the Basic Operations page and open the
I2C Slave Profile Generator page.
Note:
5.7
The Basic Operations page and the Profile Generator page cannot both be
opened at the same time due to DLL conflict issues.
COMMUNICATIONS: PROFILE GENERATOR
The I2C Slave Profile Generator allows you to mimic an I2C slave device from either
the PICkit Serial Analyzer PC interface, or from the PICkit Serial Analyzer itself. The
trade-off between the two methods is flexibility vs. response time. Mimicking a device
from the PC allows for a great deal of run time flexibility, while running from the PICkit
Serial Analyzer decreases response time. You can mimic up to eight registers in a
profile.
DISPLAYING THE I2C SLAVE PROFILE GENERATOR
The profile generator may be opened by either pressing the Show Profile Generator
button on the I2CS Basic Operations page, or by the menu item Communications > I2C
Slave Profile Generator. Figure 5-4 shows the Slave Profile Generator with the first two
registers activated.
FIGURE 5-4:
I2C™ SLAVE PROFILE GENERATOR
CREATING A PROFILE
Create a profile by filling in Inputs for each register:
• Active – Allows you to activate or deactivate a register. This must be active before
you can fill in the rest of the data. The purpose of this checkbox is to allow run
time activation or deactivation of a register.
• Comm – Flashes when the register is activated (read from or written to).
• Slave Address – Hex representation of the register’s slave address.
• Register Name – Enter a register name. This is for reference only and does not
affect operation.
• Word Address – Hex representation of the word address of the register (will be
forced to zero if Memory Block is selected.
• Enable Read – Determines whether or not the register is read accessible.
• Enable Write – Determines whether or not the register is write accessible.
DS51647C-page 44
© 2009 Microchip Technology Inc.
I2C™ Slave Communications
• Memory Block – Check if the register is to be treated as a contiguous block of
memory, such as an EE array.
• Data Size – Number of bytes in the register. If the register is not a Memory Block,
this many bytes will be returned when the register is read. If the register is a
Memory Block, the profile generator will return one byte at a time until it is
Nacked.
• Data – Stores the data belonging to the register (hex format)
• Use Large Data Array – If the data in the register is larger than 8 bytes, press this
button to display a 256 byte array into which you may enter data.
Once the parameters are entered, they can be saved as an I2C Slave Profile file
(*.pfl).
• File->Open – Open an existing profile (*.pfl)
• File->Save – Save or replace a profile (*.pfl)
• Clear All – Resets (clears) all registers
PICkit SERIAL SLAVE ADDRESS
In the groupbox ‘PICkit Serial Analyzer Slave Address’ enter the hex representation of
the slave address you want the PICkit Serial Analyzer to respond to, then press the
Apply button. This writes the address into the Analyzer firmware.
MODE
If you wish to run the slave profile from the PC (GUI) there is nothing more to do. If you
wish to run it from the PICkit Serial Analyzer, press the appropriate radio button in the
‘Mode’ groupbox.
Note:
If you are running the profile from the PICkit Serial Analyzer and you wish
to change the profile, you must press the Apply Profile button to load the
changes into the firmware.
Note:
When running the profile from the PICkit Serial Analyzer instead of the PC,
you are limited to 255 data and Configuration bytes (profile length). If you
attempt to write too large of a profile to the PICkit Serial Analyzer, an error
message will be sent to the Transactions window telling you your profile
length.

Basic Communications – Serial EEPROM Example
Figures 7-5 through 7-7 demonstrate how to communicate with a 25LC020A SPI serial
EEPROM. Refer to the 25LC020A Data Sheet (DS21833) for a detailed explanation of
its SPI communications.
Before data can be written to the 25LC020A, the write enable (WREN) latch must be
set. This requires that CS be enabled, command 0x06 transmitted, and CS disabled.
Figure 7-5 shows only Group 0 enabled. All other groups are disabled. Clicking on the
Execute button will transmit only the WREN command. The command will be logged
in the Transactions window.
FIGURE 7-5:

Once the WREN latch has been enabled, data can be written to the 25LC020A.
Figure 7-6 shows that Group 0 has been disabled, and Group 1 enabled. Clicking on
the Execute button will send the Write command (0x02), the memory address (0x00),
followed by three bytes of data: 0xAA, 0xBB and 0xCC. The command will be logged
in the Transactions window.

Creating A Script
Scripts are created by placing the cursor into the Script Detail column and right clicking.
A local menu will be displayed as shown in Figure 7-13. Select from the choice of
commands or script macro commands.
The sequence of macro commands are executed from top to bottom. Macro commands
are entered by right clicking in the box and selecting from the local menu as shown in
Figure 7-13.
Macro commands are entered according to the sequence of events as defined by the
SPI bus protocol. Studying the example scripts is a good way to learn the sequence of
events. The example scripts can also be modified and saved under a different name.
CAUTION
The choice of macro commands is very flexible. Therefore, the correctness of the
script has to be verified by the user. The PICkit Serial Analyzer program does not
verify the correctness of the script.
A complete listing of the available macro commands is given in Table 7-2. The macro
command abbreviation will be displayed in the Transactions window. The Transactions
window keeps a running log of the commands and data sent to and from the target
device.

SCRIPT EXECUTE
The Script Execute window is shown in Figure 9-10. Once scripts are created using the
Script Builder, they can be assigned to buttons in the Script Execute window. This
makes a convenient window to execute multiple scripts either individually or iteratively.
Script executing will be logged in the Transactions window.
FIGURE 9-10:

USART SYNCHRONOUS MASTER SCRIPT EXECUTE
Assignable Buttons
User created scripts will be displayed in the central USART Scripts column. To assign
a script to a button, click on the script name and drag it to the desired Assignable
Buttons in the right column. The script will be executed once each time the button is
clicked.
The Assignable Buttons can be cleared by clicking on the Clear Buttons button.

Chapter 10. User Defined Templates
10.1
INTRODUCTION
User Defined Templates extend user scripts by interpreting the data read from the
target device and displaying it in a human readable form. The conversion formula is:
EQUATION 10-1:
CONVERSION FORMULA
Read Value * Slope + Offset = Display Value
For example, an 8-bit ADC value is read, and we desire a displayed value in voltage,
0 to 5 Volts. The 8-bit ADC value (read value) can be 0 to 256 decimal. The ADC
reference voltage is 5 VDC. The slope is the constant value used to convert between
the ADC read value and the desired display value. In this example:
EQUATION 10-2:
SLOPE EXAMPLE
Slope = ADC Reference Voltage/8-bit ADC = 5/256 = 0.01953125
Using a User Defined Template, the interpretation of the ADC value can be displayed
in volts DC.

CREATING AND USING TEMPLATES
Create a User Define Template by selecting User Define Templates > Display Template
from the menu bar. The User Defined Template window is displayed as shown in
Figure 10-1, showing three active scripts.
Note:
First, a user define script(s) must be created using the Script Builder window for the selected serial communications mode. Refer to the respective
serial communications chapter under the Script Builder section.
FIGURE 10-1:
THE USER DEFINED TEMPLATE
Create the Parameter Template by filling in each line. Each line is a single parameter,
a value read converted to value displayed. The inputs below define how a particular
parameter is interpreted.
• Active – Allows you to activate or deactivate a parameter. This must be active
before you can fill in the rest of the data. The purpose of this checkbox is to allow
run time activation or deactivation of a script.
• Run – Press this button to run your script and display data after you have
completed filling out the parameter template line.
• Script – Select a user defined script from the drop down box. This script must first
be created using the Script Builder for the respective communications mode.
• Return Data – Indicate if data is received (Yes) or not (No)
• Parameter Name – Enter a parameter name. This is for reference only and does
not affect the data retrieved or displayed.
• Parameter Byte Count – The number of bytes read (1, 2, or 4)
• Start Byte – Select which byte (of a possible series of bytes) that will be used for
the display
• Byte Order – Select Least Significant to Most Significant or Most Significant to
Least Significant. If the parameter is only one byte long, this option will not be
available.
• Slope – Conversion value (read value * slope + offset = displayed value)
• Offset – Offset of read value (read value * slope + offset = displayed value)
• Signed/Unsigned – Select between Signed or Unsigned read value (this option is
only available if the format is set to Dec)
• Format – Binary, Decimal, Hexadecimal, or BCD (Binary Coded Decimal)
• # of Dec. pts – Select number of decimal points in the displayed value (this option
is only available if the format is set to Dec)

User Defined Templates
• Graph – allows the data to be graphed during run time. The pop-up graph may be
resized as needed.
Once the parameter(s) are entered, they can be saved as a User Defined Parameter
file (*.udp).
• File->Open – Open an existing User Defined Parameter file (*.udp)
• File->Save – Save or replace a User Defined Parameter file (*.udp)
• Clear All – Resets (clears) all parameter boxes
OPTIONS
•
•
•
•
10.4
Run All – Runs all parameter scripts above that are marked as active.
Iterations – How many times you wish to run the set of active parameters.
Delay – Time in between each parameter.
Error Timeout – Time the GUI will wait for a completed response to the script. If
you are running long scripts – you may wish to increase this value.
MY TEMPLATES
When the User Defined Parameter file has been saved, it will be displayed under the
User Defined Templates > My Templates on the menu bar, as shown in Figure 10-2.
Note:
The User Defined Parameter file (*.udp) must be stored in the same directory as the PICkit Serial Analyzer executable (by default C:\Program
Files\Microchip\PICkit Serial Analyzer). Otherwise, it will not be displayed
under the My Templates menu selection.
FIGURE 10-2:
SELECTING MY TEMPLATES
This implementation of the User Defined Template differs from the one in the prior
release of PICkit Serial Analyzer in that you create and run the template on the same
form. This allows for a great deal of run time flexibility. For example, you can change
any of the inputs from Section 10.3 “Creating and Using Templates” while you are
running the scripts in a loop.

GRAPHING DATA
You may also graph any of the data being displayed in real time; simply press the
Graph button for the corresponding parameter. The graph may be resized as desired.
See Figure 10-3. The Style button on the bottom of the graph toggles the view
between an area, line, column, or point plot.

OVERVIEW
Internally, the PICkit™ Serial Analyzer operates two firmware state controllers running
in parallel – Exec (executive) and Comm (communication). The Exec controller is
responsible for overall PICkit™ Serial Analyzer configuration, moving data to/from the
host (via USB) and moving data to/from the Comm controller (via RAM buffers). The
Comm controller supervises serial communication with the target device. This includes
both configuring the necessary communication hardware and executing a sequential
‘script’ defining a serial ‘transaction’.

PICkit™ Serial Analyzer User’s Guide
Data streams associated with PICkit™ Serial Analyzer are formatted with markers
called “Tag” bytes. A Tag may be stand-alone or accompanied by data. As seen in
Table 11-1, the data stream for each state controller has a set of associated Tag bytes
defined in detail later in the document.
Exec manages the interface with the host. The data stream sent to PICkit™ Serial Analyzer from the host is encoded with ECMD Tags and the data stream returned to the
host from PICkit™ Serial Analyzer uses EDATA Tags. Likewise, the Comm controller
utilizes another set of predefined Tag(s) - CCMD Tags (outgoing scripts) and CDATA
Tags (returning data). Exec has no knowledge of Comm Tag(s) but simply transports
data blindly between the host and Comm using Exec Tag(s). RAM buffers are used as
conduits to exchange data with Comm. Data destined for Comm is queued in RAM buffer 1 (CBUF1). Data returning from Comm is funneled through RAM buffer 2 (CBUF2).
The PICkit™ Serial Analyzer is designed to facilitate continuous ‘spooling’ of data
to/from the external serial device. Separate 255-byte circular buffers are maintained for
both outgoing data (scripts/data) and returning data. The USB interface is not permitted
to be a bottleneck in the PICkit™ Serial Analyzer operation. Exec processes each USB
packet immediately. If data is destined for a RAM buffer, the host is responsible to
insure adequate room is available in the buffer before the data is sent to avoid a fatal
‘overrun’ error. Returning data is queued in the appropriate circular buffer until retrieved
by Exec, tagged and sent to the host. It is possible to overrun the return buffer under
some circumstances but should be rare. Exec can interleave Exec data with Comm
data as necessary.
The PICkit™ Serial Analyzer maintains fixed-length blocks of data for control and
status. The CONTROL_BLOCK provides ‘static’ configuration information. The
STATUS_BLOCK is a snapshot of the PICkit™ Serial Analyzer operation. Each block is
divided into three sections corresponding to Exec, Comm (common to all protocols)
and Comm (specific to the active serial protocol).

The other major blocks are the control memory block and the status memory block. The
control block is used to configure the PICkit™ Serial Analyzer. The control block is
divided into the following three sections:
• Exec module configuration
• Generic Comm module configuration
• Protocol specific communication configuration
This third section will change depending on the protocol. The status block keeps the
status of various flags and is similarly divided into three sections.

Tag bytes 0x03, 0x04 and 0x05 write data bytes to their respective script buffers. In the
current architecture, Script Buffer 1 (CBUF1) is used to store communication commands that will be fetched and executed by the Comm block. So, Tag byte 0x03 is used
to delineate data that is to be sent to the script buffer including communication protocols to be sent to the unit under test. Tag bytes 0x04 and 0x05 are typically not used.
Tag bytes 0x06 and 0x07 configure the LEDs as follows:

Tag byte 0x84 is the script buffer status which shows availability of memory in each buffer. Tag bytes 0x85, 0x86 and 0x87 identify data streams coming from RAM buffers
CBUF1, CBUF2 and CBUF3, respectively. RAM buffer 2 (CBUF2) is used in this architecture to queue the data stream from the Comm module to be sent to the host
software, thus Tag byte 0x86 identifies this stream.
Tag bytes 0x85 and 0x87 are typically unused.

COMM
The Comm module will decode Tag bytes from the data stream in the script buffer. The
Tag bytes may represent commands to internally configure the PICkit™ Serial Analyzer and report status, or the Tag bytes may be protocol specific identification that
needs to be translated into the device under test’s protocol and communicated to the
device. The Comm module performs both of these functions. This section will describe
the Comm Tags common to all supported serial protocols. Table 11-11 describes the
Tags (CCMD) used in the data stream to the Comm controller. Table 11-12 describes
Tags (CDATA) used in the data stream from the Comm controller.

I2CM refers to the Master mode of the I2C protocol. See the I2C specification for protocol details. In this mode, the PICkit™ Serial Analyzer will master the I2C bus only. It will
not respond as a slave. The control block of memory dedicated to communication
allows for setting of the bit rate and displaying event markers in the software windows.

BIT RATE CODE currently in use
The I2CM Tag/CCMND bytes are used by the host (software) to describe an I2C
transaction in ‘script’ form. The script is sent via USB to the script buffer (CBUF1) and
interpreted by the Comm controller to execute the transaction on the I2C bus. The
return data stream contains I2C read data as well as ‘event marker’ tags that mark the
occurrence of each entity of the I2C transaction (e.g., Tag: 0x81 indicates a Start bit)

An example of a data stream in the script buffer that would direct the Comm back to
communicate in I2C to the unit.
Under test is as follows:
0x81
I2CM_START
0x84
I2CM_WRITE_BYTES
0x02
Number of bytes
0xA8
I2C™ address for writing
0x01

0xA9
I2C™ address for reading
0x89
I2CM_READ_BYTES_NLB
0x01
Number of bytes
0x82
I2CM_STOP
The script (above) is interpreted as follows. Tag 0x81 instructs the Comm module to
generate an I2C Start bit on the I2C bus. Tag 0x84 indicates 2 bytes will be transmitted
following the start – 0xA8 and 0x01. The first byte is the I2C slave address (with
Write/Read bit Reset) and a data/command byte of 0x01. The Comm module does not
place any significance on the value of the data bytes but merely transmits them ‘blindly’
– as instructed. The next Tag 0x83 instructs the Comm module to issue a Restart bit
on the I2C bus. Tag and data bytes - 0x84, 0x01, 0xA9 – will cause 1 byte (0xA9) to be
transmitted. Here again, the Comm module does not interpret the data – the I2C slave
will interpret 0xA9 as an address with Write/Read bit set. Tag 0x89 followed by data
byte 0x01 instructs the Comm module to attempt to read 1 byte from the slave then
issue a NACK on the bus. Finally, an I2C Stop bit is issued according to Tag 0x82. The
resulting I2C transaction looks like this on the bus:
[START][A8][01][RESTART][A9][data byte received][STOP]
As the script is executed, a data stream will be developed using Tags/CDATA
(described in Table 11-19) and returned to the host software via CBUF2.

I2CS COMMUNICATIONS
The I2CS Communication mode is a flexible I2C slave that can be configured to
respond to one or more bus addresses. Three operating modes (described below)
provide several levels of sophistication and operability. In all modes, transactions can
be reported to the host using optional PICkit Serial Analyzer event tags. Additionally,
mode-dependant data is available as described below.
TABLE 11-20:
MODE
NAME
DESCRIPTION
0
Default
Basic/mechanical mode of operation in which the PICkit
Serial Analyzer blindly accepts any/all ‘write’ data and
provides canned/default ‘read’ data in response to any
enabled I2C™ address and all device registers/addresses (data defined in CONTROL_BLOCK).
1
Interactive
This mode allows the host to orchestrate I2C™ transactions in ‘real time’. This necessarily requires the host to
provide ‘read’ data as needed while the PICkit Serial
Analyzer holds the I2C bus clock line (waiting). ‘Write’
data is reported to the host via transaction event tags.
2
Auto
In Auto mode the PICkit Serial Analyzer operates
autonomously as defined by a ‘soft’ “Slave Profile” table
stored in PICkit Serial Analyzer RAM (described
below). At any time the host can read and/or update the
table contents as needed.
Note:
The ability to service multiple slave addresses is hampered by a bug in
silicon – versions A3 and before. Slave address Mask should be set to zero
(“0”).
11.7.1
Modes
11.7.1.1
MODE: DEFAULT
As stated in the introduction, the Default mode requires little/no configuration and
results in minimal transaction latencies. This mode is of limited use in that it does not
provide for address-dependant (dynamic) read data. The CONTROL_BLOCK is the
source of ‘read’ data for any/all addresses. Of course optional Event markers report I2C
transactions to the host.

1. Issue Cold Start
2. Write Configuration Block (with Comm = I2CS and Mode = 0)
3. Issue Warm Start
11.7.1.2
MODE: INTERACTIVE
The Interactive mode provides the greatest flexibility but at the expense of transaction
latencies. The host monitors I2C transactions near real time using EVENT markers.
Should a transaction require ‘read’ data (to return to the I2C master), the I2C bus is
suspended (by holding the clock line low) until the host supplies data via the standard
‘script’ buffer.

11.7.1.2.1
Operation
Execute the following sequence for initialization:
1. Issue Cold Start (Reset)
2. Write Configuration Block (with Comm = I2CS, Mode = 1, Event Markers
enabled)
3. Issue Warm Start
The host must monitor I2C transactions via the Event Markers. Should the I2C Master
request ‘read’ data, the PICkit Serial Analyzer will hold the I2C SCK line low and alert
the host with SDATA Tag: I2CS_DATA_RQ. The host must supply data to the PICkit
Serial Analyzer to be returned to the I2CS Master using SCMND Tag:
I2CS_SEND_BYTES. If more data is supplied than is required for the transaction, the
remaining data will be discarded. If an insufficient number of bytes are supplied by the
host, the PICkit Serial Analyzer will return all data supplied then hold SCK line low and
re-issue SCMND Tag: I2CS_DATA_RQ to the host.
11.7.1.3
MODE: AUTO
Auto is the most sophisticated mode allowing the PICkit Serial Analyzer to operate
‘autonomously’ from a ‘slave profile’ loaded in PICkit Serial Analyzer RAM (CBUF3).
The slave profile defines one or more I2C slave addresses and a unique set of device
registers for each. The device registers can be defined in two ways – (1) discrete,
non-contiguous registers of various lengths or (2) a block of contiguous addresses with
flexible access to 1 or more bytes within that block in a single transaction. Additionally,
each register can be defined as Read/Write, Read-only or Write-only.
The 2 bytes in the PICkit Serial Analyzer control block, address and mask, defines the
set of slave addresses that the PICkit Serial Analyzer will ‘Acknowledge’. All addresses
excluded by the address and mask will be automatically ‘Not Acknowledged’. For all
acknowledged addresses the pre-loaded slave profile dictates the response/behavior.
For I2C transactions involving slave addresses or registers not defined in the slave
profile, write data is discarded and a read data is defaulted (0xFF). Similarly, writing to
a ‘read-only’ register or attempting to write beyond the addressable limits of the register
will cause the write data to be discarded. Reading from a ‘write-only’ register or
attempting to read beyond the addressable limits of the register will result in default
data (0xFF).

11.7.1.3.1
Operation:
The host configures the Auto mode as follows:
1. Issue Cold Start (Reset)
2. Write Configuration Block (Comm = I2CS, Mode = 2, appropriate Event Markers
enabled)
3. Write Slave Profile to CBUF3
4. Issue Warm Start
The Auto mode allows the PICkit Serial Analyzer to operate autonomously (i.e., without
host intervention). Practically speaking, the host GUI will most likely want to reflect
activity with the slave registers as it occurs. A couple of options can be employed.
Option 1 would call for the host to enable I2C transaction Event Markers detailing each
I2C transaction in which the PICkit Serial Analyzer participated. This requires that the
host decode/interpret the transactions on a byte-by-byte basis.
Option 2 utilizes the ‘register access’ event markers (I2CS_EVENT_REG_READ and
I2CS_EVENT_REG_WRITE) fired to the host when a register within the slave profile is
accessed. The fact that a slave register was read is an ‘event’ but does not represent
a change in the data loaded in the slave profile. In the event that a register within the
slave profile was written, it may be important for the host monitoring the slave profile to
fetch the ‘new’ data from that register for processing/display. Data is retrieved from a
register using SCMND Tag: I2CS_REGDATA_READ. The register contents are returned
with SDATA Tag: I2CS_REGDATA.
The register contents can be written or read by the host. To insure data integrity of
multi-byte registers, the contents are accessed only ‘between’ I2C transactions. This
may cause a slight delay in executing the request or in servicing the next/pending I2C
transactions.
11.7.1.3.2
Slave Profile
In Auto mode the PICkit Serial Analyzer personality is defined by a “slave profile” downloaded by the host to PICkit Serial Analyzer RAM (i.e., CBUF3). The profile defines one
or more I2C slave addresses and a set of one or more device registers for each. The
profile must begin with a Slave Address Tag and be terminated by an ‘End’ Tag.

SPI COMMUNICATIONS
SPI is a 4-wire serial protocol that uses data in, data out, clock and Chip Select pins. It
is a very basic protocol using a clock edge to capture data. The CONTROL_BLOCK is
used to enable SPI event markers, set the bit rate and configure transaction/protocol
options.

USART COMMUNICATIONS
Universal Synchronous Asynchronous Receive Transmit (USART) protocol is a standard 2-wire serial communication. In Asynchronous mode, there is a transmit line and
a receive line. In Synchronous mode, the transmit line becomes the clock line and the
receive line becomes the bidirectional data line. In Asynchronous mode, 8 bits are
framed by a Start and Stop bit. A ninth bit can be included to use as a parity bit.
To configure the protocol, set the clock polarity to rising edge or falling edge if using
Synchronous mode. Select the baud rate according to the BRG table.

11.10 LIN COMMUNICATIONS
11.10.1 Introduction
The PICkit Serial Analyzer LIN support is confined to master and monitor functionality.
As a master, the PICkit Serial Analyzer accepts instruction from the host in the form of
script tag(s). Execution of the script results in the PICkit Serial Analyzer transmitting on
the LIN bus as a master. In practice, the transmission would constitute a LIN frame
header or an entire LIN frame (i.e., message).
As a LIN bus monitor, the PICkit Serial Analyzer can detect and report all events/transactions on the bus generated by other devices on the bus or generated by the PICkit
Serial Analyzer master module. The ‘event marker’ tag(s) are used to report bus activity
in its variety of forms but must be enabled, individually, using CONTROL_BLOCK
Configuration bits as seen below.

11.10.2.3 CONFIGURATION CONSIDERATIONS
The PICkit Serial Analyzer can be configured to operate as LIN bus master, monitor or
both.
MASTER
To configure the PICkit Serial Analyzer to perform as LIN bus master, the host must
write the CONTROL_BLOCK to specify:
1. Default baud rate
2. LIN adapter ‘Chip Select’ line state
Optionally,
1. Set ‘receive enable’ Configuration bit to allow the PICkit Serial Analyzer to
receive RX data and report it to the host
2. Enable desired event markers

DS51647C-page 123
PICkit™ Serial Analyzer User’s Guide
MONITOR
To configure the PICkit Serial Analyzer to perform as LIN bus monitor, the host must
write the CONTROL_BLOCK to specify:
1. LIN adapter ‘Chip Select’ line state
2. Set ‘receive enable’ Configuration bit to allow the PICkit Serial Analyzer to
receive RX data and report it to the HOST
3. Set ‘auto-baud enable’ Configuration bit to allow PICkit Serial Analyzer to track
baud rate of bus transactions
Optionally,
1. Enable desired combination of event markers

Those tags (above) identified as ‘Event’, generally mark the occurrence of LIN bus
activity. As with all other supported PICkit Serial Analyzer serial protocols, the ‘Event’
tags are generated when/as are detected in real time and queued in a circular buffer
for transmission to the host. Each tag can be individually enabled/disabled using the
appropriate Configuration bit in the control block.
11.10.4 Parameter Detail
11.10.4.1 BAUD
The PICkit Serial Analyzer baud rate is configured by a 2-byte code as detailed in the
table(s) below. Upon initialization, the PICkit Serial Analyzer is configured with the
‘default’ baud specified in the control block (bytes 22 and 23) as documented in the
table above. Additionally, the baud rate can be changed in the context of script execution (real time) using the appropriate script/SCMND Tag. At all times the status block
reflects the currently active baud rate. This baud rate applies to all data transmitted by
the PICkit Serial Analyzer.
Auto-Baud
The PICkit Serial Analyzer LIN ‘monitor’ function has the flexibility to Auto-Baud Detect
and modify the PICkit Serial Analyzer hardware configuration to receive ‘messages’
from the LIN bus at the baud rate being transmitted. This ‘flexibility’ must be enabled
using the Configuration bit in the control block (byte 16 bit 7). The host can be apprised
of the Auto-Baud Detect action through an event marker tag.
© 2009 Microchip Technology Inc.
DS51647C-page 125
PICkit™ Serial Analyzer User’s Guide
The auto-baud operation depends on receiving a ‘Break’ (13 bits of 0’s) followed by a
‘Sync’ (byte 0x55). Referring to the timing diagram below – the Break begins at ‘A’. At
‘B’ the PICkit Serial Analyzer expected a Stop bit – the USART interrupts the PICkit
Serial Analyzer (RCIF – receive interrupt flag) and sets FERR (framing error). The
PICkit Serial Analyzer interprets (1) DATA = 0 and (2) FERR (framing error) as having
received a Break; therefore, the FERR is automatically reset and not reported to the
host. If Auto-Baud Detection is enabled, the PICkit Serial Analyzer will wait a maximum
of ‘WAIT-BRK’ for the Break to complete at ‘C’. The duration of WAIT-BRK must be set
to accommodate the slowest baud rate supported (6 msec was chosen to support 1000
baud +/- 50%). If the end of Break is not seen in that time, the Auto-Baud Error bit is
set in the STATUS_BLOCK and the operation is aborted. If the end of Break is seen, the
auto-baud mechanism is enabled and the baud rate of the Sync character is measured.
At the second interrupt (RCIF (2)) at ‘E’, the operation is complete and the new/measured baud rate is used for subsequent transactions. If the auto-baud measurement
experienced an overflow, the Auto-Baud Error bit is set in the STATUS_BLOCK and the
default baud rate from the CONTROL_BLOCK is reloaded into the USART. In either case,
the resultant baud rate is reflected in the STATUS_BLOCK. After the Break, the PICkit
Serial Analyzer will wait indefinitely for the Sync character to begin with the USART
receiver disabled.
WARNING
The Sync character is not actually ‘received’ by the PICkit Serial Analyzer during an
auto-baud operation; therefore, it is not reflected/reported to the host. The event
marker sequence would be BREAK_RX and auto-baud followed by BAUD_L, BAUD_H.
If auto-baud was not enabled, the event marker sequence would be BREAK_RX then
BYTE_RX followed by 0x55.

Chapter 12. PICkit™ Serial Analyzer DLL
12.1
INTRODUCTION
Custom software programs can be created by accessing the Dynamically Linked
Library (DLL), PICkitS.dll, with the software language of your choice. All of the functionality to create tag byte scripts that will be converted to protocol scripts is built into the
DLL and is very easy to use. Any programming language that can access functions
from a DLL can be used, however, a Microsoft.NET framework language is
recommended.
12.2
OVERVIEW
The name of the DLL is PickitS.dll and is included in the PICkit Serial Analyzer installation. The functions used to create custom GUI apps are divided into logical classes
inside the DLL. The classes are listed below:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
I2C Master (class PICkitS.I2CM)
I2C Slave (class PICkitS.I2CS)
SPI Master (class PICkitS.SPIM)
Microwire Master (class PICkitS.MicrowireM)
USART (class PICkitS.USART)
LIN (class PICkitS.LIN)
Device (class PICkitS.Device)
USBRead (Class PICkitS.USBRead)
Applications call functions from class ‘Device’ for initialization and cleanup, and from a
specific protocol class for input and output.
Example projects (written in Visual Basic® .NET Express – a free download from Microsoft) and detailed documentation for each protocol are available for download from the
PICkit Serial web site.

INTRODUCTION
This chapter describes questions and answers to common problems associated with
using the PICkit™ Serial Analyzer and how to resolve them.
13.2
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
PICkit™ Serial Analyzer could not be found
Question
I am receiving the error message, “PICkit™ Serial Analyzer could not be found” in the
Transactions window, but the PICkit™ Serial Analyzer is plugged in. What is wrong?
Answer
Open the Windows® operating system Device Manger by clicking on Control Panel >
System, selecting the Hardware tab and clicking on Device Manger button. Check if
there is an error displayed under Human Interface Devices as shown in Figure 13-1.
If an error is displayed, try unplugging and the re-plugging the USB cable until the error
goes away (this may take 3 or 4 tries).
If the error persists, try another USB port or hub. Try plugging the PICkit™ Serial
Analyzer into another computer to verify that the USB port is working.
FIGURE 13-1:
WINDOWS® DEVICE MANAGER
Current Limit Exceeded
Question
I received the error message “USB Hub Current Limit Exceeded” from the Windows®
operating system. What is wrong?
Answer
The USB port current limit is set to 100 mA. If the target device plus PICkit™ Serial
Analyzer exceeds this current limit, the USB port will shut down. Check for shorts. The
target device can be externally powered if more power is needed.
Microsoft® Windows® 98 SE
Question
After plugging the PICkit™ Serial Analyzer into the USB port, Windows® 98 SE asks
for a driver. Where is the driver?
Answer
PICkit™ Serial Analyzer uses the Human Interface Device (HID) driver included with
the Windows® Operating System. When Windows® 98 SE prompts for a driver, select
“Search for the best driver for your device.” Then select the check box next to “Microsoft
Windows Update” and click Next. Windows will automatically install the appropriate
driver. Do not use Microchip’s MPLAB® ICD 2 USB driver.

Appendix B. 28-Pin Demo Board I2C™ Demonstration Firmware
B.1
INTRODUCTION
The 28-Pin Demo Board I2C™ demonstration firmware communicates with the
PICkit™ Serial Analyzer using the I2C serial protocol. The PICkit Serial Analyzer will be
the I2C master and the 28-pin demo board will be the I2C slave device. The 28-pin
demo board is programmed to emulate an I2C Real-Time Clock (RTC) and Serial
EEPROM.

The 28-Pin Demo Board (DM164120-3) is populated with and configured for:
•
•
•
•
•
PIC16F886 configured using the 8 MHz internal clock
32 kHz Tuning Fork Crystal connected to Timer1 Low-power Oscillator
Four LEDs (DS1 through DS4) connected to RB0 through RB3
Potentiometer (RP1) connected to RA0/AN0
Push button (SW1) connected to RE3/MCLR
For more information about the 28-pin demo board hardware, see the “28-Pin Demo
Board User’s Guide” (DS41301).
B.4
FIRMWARE
The demo program source code and *.hex file can be found on the PICkit Serial
CD-ROM at D:\28-pin Demo Board\Firmware\.
The firmware is structured as multiple ‘modules’ representing functional components.
Each module contains, at minimum, an “initialization” routine (MODULE_INIT) and a
“service” routine (MODULE_SVC). Each initialization routine is called from MAIN once on
Reset. Each Interrupt Service Routine is called sequentially and continuously from the
MAIN Idle loop. Interrupt Service Routine is provided for the I2C module only. All other
modules are serviced in turn from the MAIN ‘Idle loop’.

All devices (slave addresses) respond to the I2C protocols described below. Each slave
device supports a fixed number of word addresses (see section B.6 Slave Devices
below). The word address is automatically incremented during a transaction for
sequential access of the device registers. If the word address is incremented beyond
the end of the supported address range, the address will “wrap”.

Slave Address: 0xA8 – EEProm Emulation
The 28-Pin Demo Board I2C™ demonstration emulates a serial EEPROM. Device
emulation provides for 256 bytes. A newly-programmed 28-pin demo board defaults
the first 8 bytes to 0x00 to 0x07 sequentially. The value of the remaining bytes is
undefined/unknown.
A read operation is executed during the transaction.
The write operation begins after the Stop bit is received. The firmware will not respond
to I2C communications during the write.

Timer1 Test
Timer1 Test provides a basic test of the auxiliary clock used for the RTC. The 28-pin
demo board employs a 32 kHz crystal on Timer1 LP Oscillator to provide a 1-second
interval for the RTC emulated device. The test begins by clearing the one-second flag,
then waits a maximum of 1.1 seconds to see if the flag is reset. Alternatively, the host
can test the RTC clock by examining Exec register, 0x02, at logically timed intervals.

B.7.3
ADC Display
The ADC Display begins by displaying hex values 0x0A, 0x0D and 0x0C in sequence
to signify “ADC” test.
After the opening display sequence, the LEDs displays the Most Significant 4 bits of the
ADC result measuring channel AN0 (potentiometer RP1). As RP1 is manually turned
from one extreme to the other, the LED display should range from binary 0000 to 1111.
The firmware must be forced from this mode by command or Reset.
B.7.4
RTC Display
The RTC Display displays the Least Significant 4 bits of EXEC_REG_02 (RTC
Seconds). The LEDs should be seen to increment once per second in a binary progression (0x0-0xF) three times, then (0x0-0xB) once as the RTC Seconds value increments
from 0x00 to 0x3B (59 decimal). The firmware must be forced from this mode by
command or Reset.
B.7.5
Communications Connector Display
This feature displays the state of the 4 signal pins on the communications connector.
LED1: PIN 1 (AUX1)
LED2: PIN 4 (SDA)
LED3: PIN 5 (SCL)
LED4: PIN 6 (AUX2)
Normally, LED2 and LED3 should be illuminated if the I2C bus has active pull-ups and
the SCK is not held low. The firmware must be forced from this mode by command or
Reset.
B.7.6
RESET Display
The Reset display is executed on Reset/power-up or by command. The sequence is a
series of individual displays as follows:
1. Ping-Pong display: cycles: 2 (i.e., LED1,2,3,4,3,2,1,2,3,4,3,2,1)
2. Blink all LEDs in unison: cycles: 1 (i.e., 1 sec OFF, 1 sec ON, 1 sec OFF)
3. ADC display (described above): cycles: perpetual
B.7.7
1 Second Blink
Blink all LEDs in unison at 1-second intervals (i.e., 1 sec OFF, 1 sec ON, 1 sec
OFF),...This feature uses time based on the Timer1 low-power oscillator and external
32 kHz tuning fork crystal.
