Hey everyone, I'm having some very basics issues with the demo board that I'm working with and was hoping that I could get some help. Here's what I'm trying to do in a nutshell:
We have a new design featuring this chip so we ordered a demo board and it's my job to figure out how to use it. After playing around with it for awhile, I was able to the code I needed to run, but it doesn't seem that this code is interacting with the outside world.
The code I'm trying to test looks for a falling edge and then produces a pulse for 2ms. I'm just inputting a square wave into the board, because all I really need is a falling edge.
I have it setup now that I'm connecting in CodeWarrior using P&E Multilink/Cyclone Pro via USB, but I have a feeling that this isn't the right setting. When I try using SofTec HSC08 or HCS08 Serial Monitor, it tells me that I can't connect.
What I'm really looking for is a way to connect to the PC and run/download/whatever the code from there so the chip reads it and reacts to the outside signal I'm inputting. Sorry for being longwinded, but I'm really at an impass here.
