Step-by-Step Procedure to Upload Firmware to Microcontroller Chip

Now that you have your

  • Circuit Board
  • Programmer Tool
  • MPLAB X

ready…

We can start to upload your project or *.hex file..

 

There are two modes of uploading firmware to the microcontroller.

  1. Method 1: Upload hex.* file (machine code) using MPLAB X IPE software.
  2. Method 2: Upload project (source code) using MPLAB X IDE software.

Method 1: Firmware upload using IPE Software

This method is usually used for the production. Programmer operators will be provided with a *.hex file for them to upload the firmware to the microcontroller chip.

The advantage of this method is that it is simple, and it do not expose your actual project source code.

 

Step 1: Launch the program MPLAB X IPE software.

IPE software launch up screen shot

Step 2: Under the section “Device:“, select the microcontroller part number that you want to load your firmware to. Refer to your schematic for the exact microcontroller part number.

Click on the button “Apply“.

IPE selecting microcontroller device

Step 3: Plug in your programmer tool to your computer.

You should notice that the software update the “Tool:” section once your tool is detected.

*****************************************************

Connecting to MPLAB PICkit 3…

Currently loaded firmware on PICkit 3
Firmware Suite Version…..01.51.08 *
Firmware type…………..Enhanced Midrange

IPE programmer tool successfully connected

Step 4: Under the section “Hex File:“, load your *.hex file for your production. This is the machine code file for your circuit board. This is the only file required for the production.

For a start, this file is located in your project folder. For example…
Your project directory -> “yourProject.X\dist\default\production\yourProject.X.production.hex

Step 5: Connect your programmer tool to the ICSP port on your circuit board. Make sure that the pin 1 on your connector is aligned correctly. Then power up your board.

Step 6: Click on the button “Program” to start the uploading of your firmware to the microcontroller chip on your circuit board.

Yes, you are done. Congratulation.
Your board is successfully loaded with the firmware.

Method 2: Project source code upload using IDE Software

This method is usually used during the development. Engineer can edit the source code and upload the firmware changes onto the microcontroller chip directly.

It is recommended to maintain your firmware version while you are doing editing and improvement work. Keeping the original functioning version is a must. You can always fall back on the original copy if you mess up the project source codes.

Step 1: Launch the program MPLAB X IDE software.

MPLAB X startup screen

Step 2: Open up your project files. Go to File > Open Project…

Select your project files. It is the project folder which ends with *.X. For example “yourProject.X”

Water Leakage Sensor | Detection & Monitoring

This page explores the various type of water sensor for the detecting of water leakage. These sensors are commonly used to detect water leakage from aircon condensation.

Aircon condensation water leakage is a very common sight in the industry. This problem is normally due to improper design and installation of the water drainage pipes. Water drainage pipes installed were too small resulting in water clogged by dust or mould when used over time. Some water drainage pipe was seen to be installed in a anti-gravity manner, which makes it impossible for any water to drain out.

->> Click here to learn more other problem relating to aircon water leakage.

It is important to ensure how these pipes are deployed during the installation process so that you will not be faced with water leakage issues.

If you are already facing the problem, consider reconstructing your water drainage system or implement the following sensor to reduce your trouble.

Aqua Switch Water Sensor

AquaBlock or Aqua switch is installed in water tray for detecting of water leak from aircon or pipes. It can also be mounted at a specific height in the tank to detect water level. The aqua switch is only a block and does not have any moving parts.

The sensor is a simple relay switch which will activate when water touches the sensor block.

Advantages

  • No moving mechanical parts
  • Relay output (dry contact switch output)
  • Simple to install
  • Suitable for aircon water leaking detection

Water Leak Sensor Cable

This sensor looks like a yellow cable or rope. This sensor cable is typically laid on the floor or above the ceiling to detect water leakage. Any water touching this water sensor can be detected by the connected electronic sensor box. The cable can be place where water leakage is likely to befound.
