Trouble with the flex card connection

Post by tuxuser » Tue Mar 06, 2012 5:02 pm


I have got a connection problem with my FLEX Card FULL.
I power supplied it with a DC 12V and I connected it with the USB wire on my computer.
Unfortunately, my PC doesn’t recognize it (not unknown device but no device detected) and so I cannot establish the connection to program the DSPIC.

I have got 3 first LEDS on green and the USB led on red.
I have not the yellow PIC18 LED on.
It’s the first use of this card.

May I have to program the PIC18 before with a programmer or something else like that?

Thank you.

Yes, you have to program PIC18 as described in these wiki pages: ... and_Scicos ... hter_Board

I hope this is helpful.
