@kehy77

Maybe it is as you say. The problem is that I cant buy it at this time.
I have to study what I got now. Also I have spent a lot of money on the boards I got and the companies that sold them make it in a way that you must spent much more in order to get something useful out of it.

Even the programming environment that they send on the cds is incomplete or is just a trial version...

Thank you @groundloop!!!!!

The board arrived!!!
I need now to get the usb to com cable in order to connect it to the pc.
Also I am getting the parts on the internet.

It seems that not all the parts are on the same supplier. And some does not exist.

But I will dedicate more time to this goal.

Jesus,

Good to see that the prototype board has arrived to you. :-)

Now you need to get a USB to comport dongle and test
the board on you computer. Almost all USB to COM dongle will do fine.
Windows XP will install the dongle driver by its self in most cases.
(If not use the driver that come with the dongle.)

Then connect the board to the dongle and start the Hyperterminal
program on your PC. Now you must set up the Hyperterminal program
to communicate with you USB dongle (and board). You select
the new port that Windows has installed and set the program
to run at 2400 bit/sec, no parity, 8 data bits and 1 stop bit.
Now connect a 9 volt battery to the board.

You can use two LEDs in series with a 330 Ohm resistor in the
output plug (pin 1 to resistor to LED to ground pin 3) and
(pin 2 to resistor, to LED number two, to ground pin 3) to test the board.

The built in LED on the board will also indicate the on/off status of the output pins.

If you have any problems with this the just email me and we will sort it out.

Groundloop.

Thank you @groundloop!

I will go today to the Guaynabo town Radio Shack to ask for the usb to com port dongle.

Hey Jesus,  Just in case you don't want to pay the almost $19 they want at Rat Shack for these there's a place I've been dealing with for years that is super cheap.  $2.99 will get you one of these and includes shipping for one (shipping is always Free at this place).  The one problem is they are slow to ship depending on where you are at as they are in China.  Expect 2 1/2 to 4 weeks for shipping to U.S. and general areas around U.S.  http://www.dealextreme.com/p/usb-to-rs232-serial-port-adapter-transparent-green-24512

As I was writing this I thought to look on eBay as sometimes this stuff ends up there from local sources and there is a place out of California that has them for $3.49 with free shipping.  That would probably be faster.  http://cgi.ebay.com/B-USB-2-0-SERIAL-RS232-DB9-9-PIN-ADAPTER-CABLE-PDA-/160523344872?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item255fefdbe8

I just know Rat Shack prices are usually insane so wanted to give you some options to think about.

Jesus,

Just a thought, have you checked that your computer has a 9 pin d-sub comport?
Another thought, ask a friend for an old used computer with a comport. Even a
old PC with Windows 98 SE will do as long as the computer has a series port.

Thank you @groundloop!

I went to RS and the cheapest dongle was 50 dollars. I kept asking around and the lowest price for a dongle on a mall was 43 dollars.

I asked for a diy way for the dongle and it was 42 dollars.

I went to CompUsa and found one with a DB9 side and a DB25 side (That is a serial and a parallel connection) to Usb for 23 dollars and bought it.

If I had known the ebay prices I would have bought those instead.

I connected the dongle and run the driver setup that came on a small cd that came within the package.

Then I run the hyperterminal and it asked for a phone that I dont have (I catch the internet signal form my brother upstairs with a wireless card) I entered the other information at the next screen and it said that it was connected.

I connected the card to the dongle and a 9v battery to the card. Also I installed the Mplab ide. I have not been able to communicate with the card.

Does the card will work without it being connected to the computer via the hyperterminal and the dongle?

Maybe I am doing something wrong.
I would like to know what programmer to choose.

Jesus,

You do not need to have any other program up and running except the Hyperterminal
program when testing the prototype card. The PIC micro controller is already loaded
with the software. We can discuss later on how to load a new software into the micro
controller.

First find the new port number that Windows did install when you installed the driver
for the USB to serial dongle.

1. Right click on My Computer icon on screen and select Properties
2. Click on Hardware folder
3. Click on the right middle button (right of small computer icon).
4. Click on the + on Ports (COM and LPT)
5. Make a note on WHAT new PORT windows has made for your USB dongle.

Use this port number when you set up Hyperterminal program.

Now, connect the 9 volt battery to the prototype board.

Groundloop.

Thank you @groiundloop!

If what you explain is to look on the device manager, I did it yesterday and today again and added the com3 to the hyperterminal.

Yesterday I tried to detect the device with the Mplab ide and could not. But you say that it is not needed at this stage.

Screen captures follow.

Jesus,

OK, it seems that your USB to serial dongle is correctly installed.

Select port 3 in Hyperterminal.
Now set up the Hyperterminal to 2400 bits/Sec, 8 data bits,
No Parity, 1 Stopbit, and None on the last entry.

Then check that you have a connected status in Hyperterminal by
looking at the bottom of the program frame.

Now connect the 9 volt battery to the prototype board a couple of times.
A menu should appear in the Hyperterminal window.

You do NOT use MPLAB to connect to a serial device. You use MPLAB
to make programs for the PIC micro, you then compile the program in MPLAB,
thus producing a HEX file. This HEX file must be transferred to the PIC16F88
by the use of a programmer hardware like the PicKit2 or similar.
You then use the PIcKit2 program to transfer the HEX file to the PIC micro controller.

Groundloop.

@groundloop

I have the pickit2 board and programmer. Can I put the pic16F88 on the pickit2 board and reprogram the pic controller with one of your downloaded files?

If so which one I must try first?

Jesus
