Default Re: MK14 Programming Interface

You didn't have to fettle any of the time delays? For some some reason most people do. I'm guessing your issue VI has a VDU friendly 4.00Mhz crystal, which should theoretically make it even more sensitive to programmer overspeed - or maybe you currently have a 4.43MHz crystal fitted?

When you come to connect OrtonView the system slowdown caused by OV will mean that you will have to throttle back the keying speed of the uploader a little bit, unless you take pains to disable OV during uploads.

I see you've used a direct connection to the reset input (only available on your issue VI) for maximum neatness.

Did it 'Just work?' If so, yet another triumph for your board designing skills.
