16f628A int_rda interrupt problem in CCS C

Hi,
I have a cLCD driver circuit which is attached PC's Tx port directly to MCU's hardware Rx port (RB1) by a 22k only (without MAX232C ..etc)
My problem is
when I set the MCU for an int_rda interrupt and send some chars fromm PC to MCU it does not call the interrrupt void function.
Do you think that it is because of direct 22k ?
Does it run when I add a MAX232 between Pc and Mcu?
please help
thanx

My code piece ;
------------------------------------
...
#int_rda
void comm_test() {
disable_interrupts(int_rda);
...
}

void main() {
...
enable_interrupts(GLOBAL);
while(1) {
enable_interrupts(int_rda);
}
}
----------------------------------------

actually I set
#use rs232 (baud=2400, rcv=pin_b1, INVERT)
by using invert, I can handle rs232 connections and I can see the coming data by
gets() and getch() methods in an endless while loop.
I want to use "int_rda" instead of while loop (to detect the coming data from PC)

I guess you posted while I was posting. :)
your code sample doesn't show your use of getch() and you need the while loop, else your PIC will go to sleep ... which should not affect this...

EDIT: do you have the example 'EX_SISR.C' in your examples directory?

Hi again,
I tried ex_sisr.c example unfortunately I can not handle the int_rda interrupt.
Please check my simple code (with no int_rda) which works well below ;
--------------------------------------------
#include <16F628A.H>
#fuses INTRC_IO, NOWDT, NOPROTECT, PUT,NOMCLR,NOBROWNOUT
#use delay(clock = 4000000)

#include "flex_lcd420.c"

#use rs232 (baud=2400, rcv=pin_b1, INVERT)

char data[20];

void main() {
lcd_init();
while (TRUE) {
gets(data);
printf(lcd_putc,data);
}

}
----------------------------------
and here is the code pieces which I added to ex_sisr ;

...
#int_rda
void serial_isr() {
int t;

//added to blink on interruption
output_low(pin_b0);
delay_ms(1000);
output_high(pin_b0);

...



void main() {

//added to blink on startup
output_low(pin_b0);
delay_ms(1000);
output_high(pin_b0);

enable_interrupts(int_rda);
// #if defined(__PCD__)
// enable_interrupts(intr_global);
// #else
enable_interrupts(global);
// #endif
...
-----------------------------------
In the second example I see led blinking in main(), but no blinking in serial_isr() during serial data send.
Please help why this hardware usart doesn't work but software working ?

Your problem is here:
#int_rda
void serial_isr() {
int t;

...
delay_ms(1000);
...

A one second blocking delay in an interrupt is asking for trouble. Interrupts should be as short as possible.

You should put the second delay in your main line code

Okay, I remove the

delay_ms(1000);
output_high(pin_b0);

lines in interrupt. I just left
output_low(pin_b0);
line. But unfortunately I can see nothing during serial data transfer.
I mean this interrupt is never caught during serial data transfer.

Does anybody tried "int_rda" interrupt working with direct connection from Pc(tx) to 16F628A(rx) through 22k (no MAX232 IC) ?

I have never tried with out using a max chip, and it has been a long time since I've used ccs c.
The problem may be that you need to define both a receive and transmit pin. Try it this way:
Code:
#use rs232 (baud=2400,xmit=PIN_B2, rcv=pin_b1, INVERT)
