NAME

       pic.conf - The configuration file for PIC microcontroller definitions

SYNOPSIS

       The  pic.conf  file  is  a  configuration  file  for  the  Odyssey  PIC
       programming tool. It contains sections, each defining  the  programming
       parameters  for  a particular PIC microcontroller device. The format of
       pic.conf is documented here for quick reference.

FILE FORMAT

       The file consists of sections and variables. A section begins with  the
       name  of  the  section  in square brackets and ends at the next section
       header. It is the same format used by odyssey.conf.

       In each section are a set of variable=value assignments. Each of  these
       defines  a specific parameter of the PIC. The following is a listing of
       all the currently defined variable names and  their  types.  If  a  PIC
       doesn’t  support  some feature, the variables do not need to be defined
       for that feature.

       memtype (string)
              The type of memory in the PIC. This can have one of  the  values
              "eprom",  "flash",  or  "flashe".  "eprom"  can  be used for any
              eprom/OTP  device.  "flash"  can  be  used  for  any   type   of
              electronically  erasable  device. "flashe" is similar to "flash"
              but in the programming cycle, the END_PROG command is  required.

       wordsize (integer)
              The size of an instruction word in bits.

       codesize (integer)
              The number of words of program memory.

       eesize (integer)
              The number of bytes of data EEPROM. If the device doesn’t have a
              data EEPROM, this can be set to 0 or not specified at all.

       progcount (integer)
              The maximum number of times  to  attempt  to  program  a  memory
              location  before  reporting an error. Defined in the programming
              spec.

       progmult (integer)
              The multiplier for the number of times to  overprogram.  Defined
              in the programming spec.

       progtime (integer)
              The  number  of microseconds in each programming attempt for one
              memory location. To be on the safe side, the maximum value  from
              the datasheet should be used for flash devices.

       erasetime (integer)
              The number of microseconds that a bulk erase takes.

       configmask (integer)
              A bitmask of all valid (non-reserved) configuration bits.

       configsave (integer)
              A  bitmask  of  persistent bits in the configuration word. These
              bits will be saved before and restored after a chip erase.  They
              will also not be modifiable when programming the device.

       cp_mask (integer)
              A bitmask of all the code protection bits.

       cp_all (integer)
              The value of the code protection bits when all program memory is
              code protected.

       cp_none (integer)
              The value of the code protection bits when no program memory  is
              code protected.

       cpd_mask (integer)
              A bitmask of the bit(s) that enable data memory code protection.

       cpd_on (integer)
              The value of  the  cpd  bit(s)  when  data  code  protection  is
              enabled.

       cpd_off (integer)
              The  value  of  the  cpd  bit(s)  when  data  code protection is
              disabled.

       bkbug_mask (integer)
              A bitmask for the bit(s) which  enable  the  on-chip  background
              debugger.

       bkbug_on (integer)
              The value of the bkbug bits when the debugger is enabled.

       bkbug_off (integer)
              The value of the bkbug bits when the debugger is disabled.
