WLoader – a 16f877 application loader

A reset either manually or via the remote reset circuit activates the loader. The 16f supports three methods to get a program into the chip: The remote reset circuit can be omitted when the target circuit already has a manual reset pushbutton switchbut it is very convenient to be able to reset the target and 16c87x activate WLoader from the PC.

V Version The version number 4 hex digits is copied to the communication buffer. The pro’s and con’s of the three loading methods are summarized below.

The datzsheet application instructions at these addresses are put at a location within the loader, and are executed before the jump to the rest of the user application program, starting at address 3. According to the type of the microcontroller, these banks may vary. Now let us look in to the detailed explanation about each sections inside the PIC 16F The use datashset each functional block inside this controller has already been explained in the previous post.

This resistor determines the level on the line when either the rest of the circuit or the PC is not connected, so in that case the application is started automatically when the PIC is reset. Self-programming means that the 16f87x can program its own code FPROM, so – once you dxtasheet loaded suitable application loader firmware in your target datashete – a simple serial interface to your PC is all you need to download and run an application.


Luckily most compilers are not that clever. The Wisp PC command-line tool can be used to download datqsheet application code, to verify the downloading, to start the application program, and provides a simple TTY interface that can be used to communicate with the application.

For program memory the higer two bits are set to 0. Note that conform good practice both sets of power pins of the 16F are connected.

Before the application is started port A is put back in its power-on state analog functions enabled, port A pins can not be used as digital inputs. The hex value abcd is written to the current memory location if and only if the current location differs from abcd.

R2 is needed when the MAX is a permanent part of the circuit, again to provide the low level on RE2, in this case when no PC is connected. Your email address will not be published. Besides the standard WBus-defined commands the WLoader firmware implements a number of specific commands which are described in the next table, together with 1687x WLoader-specific aspects of the WBus-defined commands. It is shown here mainly because this was the original WLoader hardware.

WLoader – a 16f application loader

The protocol adheres to the WBus definition, but the WLoader is always in active mode after a reset of the 16F, so it does not support multiple devices on the same bus.

The send-receive combiner is just R3. It might be necessarry daatasheet copy the p16f Each bank holds bytes of addressable memory. I recommend this version only to those who are enthousiastic about minimal-hardware solutions and can solve the problems that might occur.


The RS interface R2, D1, R7, R3 avoids current through the 16f protection diodes, which is outside Microchip’s operating specs and is rumored to cause all kinds of nasty effects.

When the RS input is negative the zener now acting as diode and the same resistors put a voltage on the interface pin that is close to zero. Previous post Next post.

When nothing is connected to the RS connector R1 keeps the 16f input high, which causes the loader to start the application when a reset occurs. R Read The current memory location 4 hexadecimal digits is read and coped the content to the communication buffer. You may also like: WLoader is designed for and tested with the 16f only, but it should be useable with other 16f87x chips when some modifications are made: The banked arrangement is necessary because there are only 7 bits are available in the instruction word for the addressing of a register, which gives only addresses.

The right side or the circuit is the same 16F target circuit as used with the MAX If neither WLoader nor any of the other bootloaders satisfies your particular needs for instance because you want I2C, SPI or another exotic interface do not hesitate to develop your own bootloader, it is not very difficult.
