    Default Supported Devices

    Is there an easy way to find out which devices are supported in Proton24?

    I'm looking on http://www.protonbasic.co.uk/content.php/1878 but there are a number of chips that I've seen people post about working on that don't appear in that list.

    I want to make my first steps in to Proton24 and I'm just not clear which chips I should be getting. I have a few specific tasks, so I've identified a few suitable parts - but they aren't on the list I've linked to. The trouble is the part numbers seem to be pretty random, so it is really hard to figure out which part would be suitable from the supported list.

    I made that list a couple of years back. To create it I wrote a program in Delphi that found the PPI files and generated the list.
    I will update it some time in the next few weeks - I have to find the program I wrote !!
    In the meantime have a look in Program Files (x86)/ProtonIDE/PDS/Includes/PPI
    If it's not mentioned there then the device is not supported.
    Best wishes

    Hi,
    Not sure if this works for 16bit devices but see no reason why not.
    All I do is enter Device = 16F883 or the like, if the device number changes to blue it is supported, also in the code explorer it changes from 18F25K20.

    Thanks John. It's a pity the device list isn't updated when a compiler update is released. I'll have a poke around that folder as suggested. Thanks!

    Just do as Bob suggested and there is no need to poke around in folders.

    Hello

    I look at the list first, if I don't find it there, I look at all of the chips in the updates, this works but I think a little better job could be done in the website as this is a part of getting sales for Proton.
    Les has his hands full I am sure, but as a person that is gratful for Proton I only want it to grow in popularity as it should, so keeping up the web site should be a regular thing.
    I hope that a person in the USA. will step up as a distributer and be a loud voice to help it grow.

    Nuff said

    Default Re: Supported Devices

    I usually start with the Microchip parametric search and find a chip that has all the features I want, then as Bob suggested above type it into the compiler (Device = ...) and see if it is highlighted.

    I would add that if you do find a pic that you particularly want to use and Proton doesn't support it then add a request on the forum. In my experience Les has always been extremely good at adding supported pics when someone has asked.
